Refurbishing our Holiday Cottages
Incorporating beautiful designs, splashes of bold colours, modern touches and made-to-last furniture, be sure to take a look at our refurbished holiday cottages.
Our much-loved holiday cottages are being transformed with stylish interiors and brand new kitchens and bathrooms.
We’re working with Home Design Stylists and Partners from across John Lewis to pick out timeless pieces, state-of-the-art appliances and furniture that’s been built to last. From William Morris wallpapers to Nespresso machines and slide and hide oven doors, and from smart TVs to luxurious sofas, the refurbished cottages combine trends and tech with playful nods to the past – making them the perfect places for relaxing, stress-free holidays.
So far we’ve refurbished eight of our twenty cottages. Check out the changes and find inspiration for your next holiday in history.
