Find cottages in England

Holiday cottages in England need little introduction. After all, a cottage break is really the quintessential English holiday, and we think there are few better ways to explore the wonderful history and heritage the country has to offer. But with so many beautiful locations – and so much to see and do – your only problem may be deciding where to enjoy your break. With that in mind we’re going to make a few suggestions for some of our favourite English locations and activities.

Choose one of our featured English cottages in the north and you could explore the unrivalled beauty of the Lakes. This gloriously unspoiled region has been attracting visitors for hundreds of years. In fact, you only have to look at the effect it’s had over some of the country’s most influential poets and artists to gauge its beauty!

Alternatively, the south of England isn’t short of beauty either. Whether its Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline or the sleepy charms of the Cotswolds, you won’t be short of beautiful views and unrivalled tranquillity. Then again, if you like it loud and lively you’ll find some of Europe’s most vibrant urban hotspots to explore and enjoy. London is obviously a huge draw with tourists and holidaymakers but you’re guaranteed a fantastic cosmopolitan experience in some of England’s other major cities too: Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, York, Chester and more all offer wonderful shopping with fine dining and some justly celebrated heritage.

England’s landscape is as varied as it is beautiful, so you won’t be surprised to find it’s suitable for a wealth of different breaks. If you fancy beaches then you’ll be spoiled for choice with the golden sands of Cornwall and Devon, the wild shorelines of Northumberland or the traditional seaside heritage of Great Yarmouth, Brighton and Blackpool. Further inland you have a variety of beautiful wide-open expanses to enjoy, with or without your four-legged friends. From the rolling limestone hills of the Yorkshire Dales to the flats of Somerset, there are walks and to suit all ages and abilities. England’s history is long and varied and there are wonderful heritage attractions located all over the country, from stately homes and castles to museums, railways and festivals. In short, English holiday cottages are suitable for anyone who’s keen to relax and enjoy a wealth of options in some of the most stunning surrounds you could wish for.

If you’re ready to begin your exploration, take a look at our featured holiday cottages in England today.

    "...Close to ridge and furrow rolling down to the River Isbourne... amidst 58 acres of Cotswold farmland."

    Set in glorious countryside with outstanding views towards the Cotswold Hills and Vale of Evesham, Cottons Farm enjoys a truly peaceful setting at the end of a long tree-lined drive,
    300 metres from the road. It is just a mile from the pretty, unspoilt village of Dumbleton, easily accessible by road or footpath, and 5 miles from Broadway, the ever-popular ‘capital’ of the Cotswolds. The holiday cottages are surrounded by 58 acres of working farmland, with ridge and furrow rolling down to the River Isbourne, which lies 150 metres away from the cottages (toddlers beware!). Visitors are welcome to walk in the fields surrounding the farm and many public footpaths run nearby. Very tastefully converted from 150-year old farm buildings (including cart-shed, stable and dairy), these comfortable cottages are well equipped and furnished to a high standard.

    Cool in summer, warm and welcoming in winter, they are all centrally heated and well insulated. Set near the owners’ home, yet retaining complete privacy, each cottage has its own individual character with many original features, and enjoys its own area of garden and patio. A perfect place to relax, they are ideally situated for walking and touring the Cotswolds.
    Broadway with its old stone houses and fascinating shops also boasts Broadway Tower, now the centre of a country park and home to an observatory and exhibition. The market town of Evesham (5 miles) has tree-lined streets and pretty walks along the River Avon. Only a few minutes’ drive, on the edge of the Cotswold hills, is Toddington, where visitors can board a train on the Gloucestershire–Warwickshire Great Western Railway (mid March - mid October) and enjoy a ride through picturesque villages.
    In nearby Winchcombe there’s Sudeley Castle, while the Cotswolds Farm Park/Adam’s Farm (with its rare breeds of animals) and the bird sanctuary at Bourton-on-the-Water are easily reached, as are Stanway House, Hidcote Garden, Snowshill Manor and Cheltenham. Stratford-upon-Avon and the cathedral city of Worcester are within an hour’s drive. The neighbouring villages boast traditional pubs and many excellent restaurants. Riding, swimming, golf, tennis and fishing are all close by. Shop 1 mile.
