Beautiful Cottages with Beautiful Gardens

While our luxury cottages, luxury lodges and manor houses across the UK are renowned for their plush decor, modern amenities, gorgeous locations and log fires, there’s much more to our hand-picked homes than their interiors.

Guests and travellers with green fingers, and those who like to have their own pieces of paradise, will also enjoy discovering the gardens of our most beautiful cottages. Here we’ve highlighted a selection of our loveliest getaways with gardens grand enough to match.

The exterior of a manor in Llyn Peninsula, Wales on a sunny day

Plas Efailnewydd, Pwllheli, Llyn Peninsula

Sleeps 20 | Georgian manor house | 5 acres of gardens

If you’re looking for an impressive house for a family reunion or celebration, Plas Efailnewydd won’t disappoint. To start with, it’s a striking Grade II* listed Georgian manor house with lots of luxurious touches. These include a kitchen designed by a Michelin-starred chef and there’s even a self-playing piano.

However, the 5 acres of secluded grounds are simply enchanting and are the perfect setting for a special garden party. Take afternoon tea on the wisteria-clad verandah or enjoy a barbecue in the courtyard garden.

There is always something to see, whatever the season, from the bluebells in springtime to the autumnal display of Japanese maples.

Garden overlooking a lake

Shepherd’s Lakeview, Chew Stoke, Somerset

Sleeps 16 | Games Room | Hot Tub | Lake Views

What’s not to love about this glorious garden? This outdoor haven in deepest Somerset comes with all the added extras that make an escape feel truly luxurious. A heated, six-seater hot tub, sun loungers and a barbecue area on the patio mean that your outdoor space is essentially an extra room for drinks, dining or unwinding. The magnificent design of this unique house adds to the garden aesthetic, as full-length windows in the living area will provide you with sweeping views over your own landscaped lawn, which is peppered with trees and exotic plants, as well as the chief attraction – the mesmerising Chew Valley Lake beyond.

Byron Cottage

Byron Cottage, Chipping Norton, Cotswolds

Sleeps 4 | Summerhouse and Terrace | On-site Swimming Pool

This former hayloft is part of the Anthology Cottages luxury cottage complex on a country estate in the Cotswolds. You’ll have sole use of a delightful summerhouse and a terrace where you can relax and admire views of the estate’s stunning gardens.

A real labour of love, Visit England has awarded the gardens top marks and it’s easy to see why. A host of highlights await you including sweeping lawns, orchards, flower-filled borders, formal box hedges, a walled garden, a wisteria tunnel, an arched column and much, much more.

There are also luxury facilities at the site including an indoor swimming pool and a spa.

Albert Lodge

Albert Lodge, Pudleston, Welsh Borders

Sleeps 2 | Peaceful Countryside Surrounding | Hot Tub

This charming lodge is one of the historic gatehouses of a magnificent country estate in the heart of Herefordshire. Relax in the secluded garden, which has a two-person barrel sauna, as well as a hot tub, and is perfect for romantic dining alfresco.

You’ll also have views of the estate grounds, within which is stunning parkland, lakes and woods, which are superb for a tranquil walk. So, pack a picnic and go hand-in-hand to explore.

Stone house with outdoor dining area surrounded by trees

Winnow Mill, Selkirk, Scotland

Sleeps 10 | Open Fire | Sauna Room | BBQ

At this rural Scottish countryside conversion, which was formerly a 19th century mill, you’ll get much more than you bargained for. Walk out through the lounge’s double glass doors to see spectacular scenery and a garden to match. The countryside creates a natural border to the grass-laden grounds of the house – but it’s the specially crafted, pebbled seating area that will be the hub of your holiday. Here you’ll find cosy wooden seating around a chiminea, along with benches, a wooden table for outdoor dining, and a barbecue for toasting treats. There’s even a newly added shepherd’s hut for those who wish to sleep under the stars.
