We love a good list here at cottages4you, and we thought you might be interested in finding out which are currently the most popular cottages of 2014 too. Whether it’s a stunning interior, beautiful location or both, each of these properties offers something a little bit special.
The list is based on early bookings for 2014, which means there’s still quite a lot of availability for next year, so if you fancy booking a break at one of them you still have a very good chance! What’s more you can currently reserve your 2014 cottage for our low deposit amount of only £25 and, at the time of posting, our prices are held at 2013 levels, so there’s no better time to book your holiday for next year.
