Luxury waterside holiday cottages

Nothing says "and, breathe" like a weekend by the water; in our luxury waterside holiday cottages, private coastal homes, and chic boathouses, seaside reveries and lake dreaming become an all-too-easy reality.

Soaring over iconic Cornish peninsulas, hunkered down among Ireland's glorious woodlands, and peeking over Cumbrian tarns, our private waterside homes are set by the best lochs, lakes, rivers, and beaches in the British Isles. These are places to clink glasses, twirl under twinkling lights, and chat until the wee hours to the sound of lapping waves. There is, perhaps, no greater feeling on earth than dashing to the tideline for a glacial morning dip, or diving in a tepid lake while lunch sizzles on the barbecue. An idyllic getaway for families and couples alike, our luxury waterside holiday cottages offer all the restorative properties that cold water therapy brings, but with bubbling hot tubs to sweeten the deal.

Whether you choose to hole up by the coast, the lake, or the river, what's on the cards is al fresco supper gatherings, crackling fire pits that become s'mores headquarters, and real-life water soundscapes sending the little ones to sleep. Go off-grid in a luxury waterside holiday cottage set on your own private island, play board games on a cinematic decking that hovers over secret beaches, or hunker down in remote wilderness cabins. We've sourced staycations by babbling rivers, up inland valleys, and soaring over sandy bays where surfers catch the morning swell and dogs on their summer holidays sniff out seashells in the froth. Peaceful restoration comes in waves at these one-of-a-kind waterside homes.
