Remote holiday cottages & secluded beach cottages

From short breaks and long weekends, to indulgent tours of Britain's beauty spots, every holiday should be special. Handpicked for their style and charm, our remote holiday cottages and secluded beach cottages offer our guests exactly that, in breath taking locations across the North of England and South of Scotland.

Remote holiday cottages

There's nothing quite like spending a little time away from it all, especially when that time is spent in a luxurious cottage, surrounded by the hidden beauty of the United Kingdom. Our remote holiday cottages give you that opportunity, offering peace, quiet, and tranquillity far from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

From huts perched on the side of rolling hillsides, to cosy farmhouses and secluded beach cottages, our remote properties have been handpicked for their excellence. Explore idyllic forests, discover historic landmarks, or absorb breathtaking coastal views: your getaway will help you create exactly the experience you desire, whether you’re planning a trip with the entire family, or a romantic break with someone special.

Secluded beach cottages

Beach holidays are opportunities to recharge your batteries, discover the outdoors, or create memories with family and friends. Some of our most captivating remote properties are located on the UK’s scenic coastline, complete with sea views, fresh air, and opportunities to hike and explore for hours and hours.

Our secluded holiday cottages are sanctuaries, miles and miles away from the roads, crowds, and noises of the city. Stroll coastal trails and forgotten coves, find seaside flora and fauna, or explore sleepy seaside communities. However you choose to spend your time on the coast, you’ll be able to look forward to returning to your cosy cottage at the end of the day and falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

The comfort of solitude

Whether you’re looking for a rustic steading or a stately manor, our remote getaways are finished and furnished to the same standard that you’d expect in any Crabtree & Crabtree property, meaning you’ll have everything you need however far off the beaten track you choose to go. Sink into indulgent sofas by crackling log fires, cook up a feast in a fully-fitted kitchen, take a stroll in a cultivated garden, or head out for a midnight stargazing sojourn.

Your holiday away from it all will let you immerse yourself in the rare comfort of solitude until you reconnect with the world beyond.
