This Scottish island is already outperforming bookings for the rest of the UK, according to Cottage.com. The beautiful location is remote enough for you to enjoy a lovely escape from your mundane reality and has endless adventures on offer. However, there are only 100 holiday homes on the island so you’ll have to get a move on if you’re planning a trip.

Many will agree that Cornwall is one of the best, if not the best, holiday destination in the UK. So, it’s no wonder that the stunning village of St. Ives has made the list. Last year, almost the entire population swamped the town during our extensive summer heatwave and Cottage.com predicts that the same will happen in the summer of 2019. St. Ives is knownas a surfing district thanks to Porthmeor beach as well as boasting an impressive British art scene, not to mention its picture perfect cobbled streets and coastal paths.
