UK Lodge Type Stays for One

(20 Posts)

Hi, I have big plans to take a week off work and have a week all to myself, somewhere relaxing. I'm thinking some sort of little self catering lodge type arrangement. Cosy, clean and with reasonable access to shops and good countryside or a bit of seaside (I have a car). A woodburner would be perfect but isn't a deal breaker. I just need a little break to catch up on my books and breath some good air. Does anyone have any recommendations?

That sounds great! What part of the country?

Hi, I live in the Midlands so am fairly flexible although I'd prefer no more than four hours drive which probably knocks out the country's extremities l.

I wish i was you 😀

If I was use I'd look in the Lake District. Lots of wonderful accommodation there. If you want to be near some facilities Coniston, Grasmere and Keswick are great places to visit.

We stayed in a lovely place near great longstone, Derbyshire - woodburner and very cosy (for 2 and a dog in our case) sorry don't have the address on my phone.

This is lovely site

The staff are lovely too and the site is very clean. You can walk into Ashbourne but you'd have to be quite fit to walk back up the hill.

Thank you for your suggestions, I'm googling away at these as we speak.

Apologies for the change of direction but having looked at a few places in the lake district and Derbyshire (both have such lovely countryside). I'm now thinking more of a small cottage (with a lot burner/real fire). A lot I've seen are for families or bigger parties so I'd really appreciate any recommendations for cosy cottages. Thank you to everyone who has suggested places to go, it's certainly narrowed down where i want to go.

Coppermines is a good company for cottages near Coniston, they were very good to book through. I don't think the cottage we had is what you're looking for though.

I have this saved in my ‘I can dream’ folder - A bit different but may have something you like.

Sally’s Cottages in the Lake District have some lovely small cottages.

Have a look at the National Trust website. They have a lot of holiday cottage rentals as well as campsites with yurts etc.

A very genuine thank you to you all. I'll be taking a look tonight and tomorrow.

God that sounds lovely. I am going to browse all the recommended places and daydream about a week of peaceful reading and walking.

Hi all, thanks for all your advice and suggestions. I've booked a fabulous little cottage in the Cotswolds with a wood burner, fabulous copper bath and a decent little kitchen. I managed to get it for £300 for the week. I just need to save some spending money and dig out my books.
