The First Time... As seen on TV


Holidays are where first times happen. They’re for spending quality time together with those closest to you – including the dog. For making treasured memories, like your little ones’ first time seeing the sea. And they’re for new experiences, where you might find yourself trying something you never thought you could. 

Original Cottages offers beautiful, self-catering holiday homes in stunning destinations. Choose from unique coastal and countryside escapes that cover the UK from Northumberland to Cornwall. We’ll help you discover the true beauty of home – as if for the very first time.
