Wanderlust Wednesday: Sykes Cottages

I am secretly a big nerd and obsessed with Jane Austen, so i've longed for a vacation that I could live out my most Austen-esque fantasies among the English countryside...So obviously I was excited to have found Sykes Cottages. Sykes is a self catering cottage guide for the UK and Ireland. You can search for cottages based on different factors from romantic to luxury, or coastal to farm. 
The cottages are the places most dream of staying in during a trip to Ireland or the UK.  
I can't imagine more perfect accommodations.

One of the best aspects of this site are the descriptions underneath the cottages. I have never heard of a large majority of the towns, but each and every word makes me want to go there.

Heres a sample of a cottage description, "this delightful 17th century mill house stands beside the River Ysgethin, within a small independently-owned holiday lodge park in the popular coastal village of Talybont, which is ideally positioned between Barmouth and the World Heritage Site of Harlech. This stone-built, detached Barmouth cottage boasts a wealth of character oak beams and trusses, as well as a woodburning stove to create a cosy “olde worlde” atmosphere."

Sykes Cottages is kind of like an air bnb for the cottage industry because the prices are reasonable, they are far removed from your standard (boring) hotels, and you can even rent out your cottage (if you are lucky enough to own one). 
I can just imagine sitting in a salty old English port town, cozied up under a blanket while drinking coffee... (also sounds a bit like a scene from "The Holiday"!)


I definitely recommend you pop on over to Sykes Cottages, because once you see all their perfect rentals, i'm pretty sure you will be searching for a plane ticket next.
