UK holiday rentals with features where you may feel like you are holidaying abroad

For many holidaymakers, renting a British holiday home that feels like home is truly appealing and is part of the charm of taking a break in the UK; where you can stay in a welcoming home from home, with all of the charm and home comforts you are used to in your own abode. Country Cottages Online features a fantastic range of homely cottages.

Some people though, dream of renting a British holiday home with the feel of an overseas holiday rental, with features usually associated with breaks in sunnier climates. Features associated with foreign stays are often things like:


Rooftop terraces

Outdoor Pools

Holiday rentals that are in the UK but feel like they could be in sunnier climates can be particularly appealing for summer breaks. Avoid airport queues and the stress of flying and simply jump in your car for a break in a British holiday cottage where (if you get sunshine) you could well feel as if you have gone abroad after all.

Below are a selection of some of the holiday homes listed on Country Cottages Online where in sunny weather you could enjoy alfresco living and truly easily imagine that you were overseas and not holidaying at home in the UK. If you like the idea of holidaying in Britain but want the feel of being abroad, then booking a stay in one of the below properties may be the perfect choice for your 2022 or 2023 holiday.

From the garden with its exotic looking plants to the white-washed interior, Ancarva looks very much like a holiday villa often associated with holidaying abroad. The glass balcony, huge ceiling to floor windows, sleek interior and amazing estuary views too, all give this property plenty of holiday appeal. Set in Cornwall, yet with the feel that you could be a million miles away.

Feel like a star when you book a break at Dancing Hill. The fabulous roof terrace with its bubbly hot tub would not be out of place in the most glamorous of foreign holiday destinations, but is in fact in Somerset, in England’s West Country. The interior is more traditionally British with its beams and cosy interior, but head up to the roof terrace and you could truly feel as if you had escaped on a foreign holiday whilst holidaying at home in the UK, in Somerset.

One of the most sought after holiday homes on Country Cottages Online, and with good reason too, this 5 bedroom holiday rental has not only an outdoor swimming pool with sun loungers, but also an amazing first floor balcony with more sun loungers. In summer time, you could truly imagine lying back on a lounger at Foxhill Lodge by the pool with your shades on, in the sunshine, and imagining that you were somewhere way more exotic, whilst enjoying all of the convenience of a home from home stay in Devon.

With its light and airy interior, and stunning sea views, Harbour Sands is a superb Northumbrian holiday home but with its amazing coastal location, stunning balcony and stylish interior, this holiday home has a truly European feel.

Sea Eden with its bold colourful interior, exotic indoor plants and amazing garden with outdoor hot tub and exotic plants has the sort of cool vibes associated with places like Mexico, Ibiza and the Canary Isles, yet is right home here in the UK, close to Sennen in Cornwall.
