Top 10 Wilderness Cottages

Wilderness-Holiday-Cottages

If you dream of living like Ray Mears or Bear Grylls, but don’t fancy having to build your own shelter or cook over a camp fire, then a wilderness break in a luxury holiday cottage could be right up your street or should we say field?!  If you dream of peace and quiet and with the only next door neighbours being sheep or a passing hawk, a cottage in one of the UK’s more remote destinations is ideal. Staycationing in the UK doesn’t have to mean following the crowd.

We are so lucky in the UK to have such a variety of landscapes. From rugged coastlines to rolling dales and moorlands, it is still possible to find seclusion and almost total privacy. For the keen ramblers and mountain bikers amongst you, then finding a holiday cottage in the middle of a wild landscape must be the dream. Free to explore the surrounding countryside, away from the stresses of city living and office life; this is the kind of holiday we can all do with at least once.

Here are our top 10 wilderness cottages. All offer privacy, seclusion and in some cases isolation. Depending on how wild you want to be, there is a cottage for you.
