Explore the UK’s stunning Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with ease from one of our luxury cottages and holiday homes located in some of the most scenic destinations imaginable. By definition, the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which are protected by law, need to meet some very special criteria. These landscapes must be scenically stunning, but other factors include being situated in relative tranquillity, while some Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty have interesting natural heritage such as unique geology, are culturally significant such as historic parkland, or are home to rare species of flora and fauna. So, you’ll be guaranteed to be transported far, far away from the daily grind.
In Luxury Cottages’ collections of luxury cottages and holiday homes you’ll find a host of retreats that are perfect for exploring Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the Cotswolds, Lincolnshire and the Malvern Hills, which are all steeped in history and have their individual charms.

From our featured destinations there are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, horse-riding and wildlife-watching, as well as water-based activities including canoeing or sailing.
