Cottages for Couples

Looking for something just right for two?

couples fireplaceWhile many holiday cottages, houses and apartments are almost like mansions, there is plenty of small, right-sized self-catering accommodation for two in Scotland. Those properties with one bedroom may top the list, but there are also many owners who welcome couples and who will give a ‘low occupancy’ discount if you are using just one bedroom.

Although it’s the obvious place to start, don’t just look for properties which say ‘sleeps 2’, or ‘one bedroom’ – check out two-bedroomed and larger properties too, and if it’s not obvious, ask the owner/manager if they will take some money off if it’s just a couple.

Accommodation ideal for couples

All the properties below are ideally suited for couples – they are either small and cosy, offer discounts for low occupancy, or have something special to offer.  You can browse this list, or Sort or Filter according to your specific requirements using the options just below.

With EmbraceScotland you book direct with the owner, giving you access not only to the best prices, but also a wealth of local knowledge and advice about how to make the most of the area, and the activities on offer.
