A new study has identified where are the most popular destinations in the UK for people planning domestic breaks.
Hoseasons, a national holiday lettings company, analysed its own booking figures to determine where the most in-demand holiday homes are located.
"Obviously the quality, character, facilities and location of the individual cottage are all crucial - but all these things being equal, it is clear that some areas of the country are in greater demand from cottage holidaymakers," explained Hoseasons' head of cottages, Tina Smith.
The findings showed that places like Padstow, St Ives, Dawlish, Woolacombe and Lyme Regis were popular in the south of England.
In addition, the research found that any cottages near the historic cities of Bath and Wells were perennially popular.
Elsewhere in England, cottages near the Norfolk Broads, Tetbur, Whitby or Windermere were sure to attract domestic holidaymakers.
Homes near Applecross and on the Isle of Sky in Scotland and the Gower Peninsula and Betws y Coed in Wales were also found to be highly desirable.
A recent study by Teletext Holidays named the Suffolk town of Southwold as the most quintessentially British seaside town.
