Welcome to Cottage Escapes

Thank you for visiting our website showcasing some superb holiday cottages for you to enjoy.

Whilst our ‘Cottage Escapes’ name is new, we have been involved in the holiday cottage trade for many years having previously developed a range of regional cottage brands you might have come across – Cumbrian Cottages, Yorkshire Cottages, Northumbrian and Scottish Cottages .

But time moves on and so do we, with our new brand ‘Cottage Escapes’ .

‘ Cottage Escapes’ originally began in 2007 when we purchased a very sad dilapidated flat in central Keswick which we fully refurbished to become ‘Marley’s den’ a highly successful 4 star property .

Since then, we have progressed with out loyal team of skilled tradesmen to sourcing and developing holiday property in the very best locations in the Lake District and the Yorkshire Moors and Coast.

Each ‘Cottage Escapes’ property has undergone extensive development and refurbishment to create bespoke holiday homes with every convenience for our guests . All our properties range from a minimum 4 to 5 star gold standard , we provide all fuel, bed linen and towels , unlimited WIFI and unprecedented levels of quality furnishing and fittings. Most of the properties also accept pets.

We hope you will enjoy your holiday in one of our ‘Cottage Escapes’ properties.

Kind Regards

The Durbin family
