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.

    East Cottage is one of a small group of similar holiday properties at Feetham Holme Cottages. This semi-detached cottage is quirky and cosy offering a ground floor lounge with original features, shower room and characterful kitchen with original pantry shelving and alcoves. Leading up the stone staircase guests will find a snug and a well-presented double bedroom with views ranging far and wide.

    Situated in the heart of beautiful Swaledale in the magnificent North Yorkshire Dales, this is a rural and peaceful yet accessible location. The buildings have been lovingly restored and converted, and the cottages have been commended in the Yorkshire Dales National Park Golden Jubilee Awards of 2005, recognising the skill and dedication of local craftsmen and designers whose work respected the history and heritage of the cottages whilst providing all comforts and amenities that guests would expect. The cottages are cosy, warm and welcoming with wood burners and electric storage heaters, and retain many original features which include stone flagged floors, stone alcoves, beamed ceilings, inglenook and feature fireplaces and stone staircases.

    Hidden away down a private lane on Whitaside in Swaledale, accessed via a rough track and occupying an elevated position across the valley from Low Row, Feetham Holme Cottages are a haven for guests who enjoy walking, cycling and rambling through the great outdoors. There is a multitude of established footpaths that lead right from the door and will take guests on a journey through some of the most spectacular scenery that this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer, and leads right through Swaledale, Wensleydale, Arkengarthdale and beyond.

    The popular market town of Reeth is only three miles away and offers many amenities including a weekly farmers’ market, local pubs, shops and tea rooms. Smaller villages and towns nearby include Gunnerside, Keld, Thwaite and Fremington. There are many excellent local pubs, restaurants and country inns which provide the perfect resting place, before, during or after a long walk or cycle. A little further afield but still within easy driving distance, there are many popular attractions to visit for all ages, including Castle Bolton, Swaledale Folk Museum, Theakstons Brewery, Wensleydale Creamery and The Forbidden Corner.

    Within 20 miles, guests really must visit the Georgian town of Richmond, Hawes or Leyburn which are especially popular with families and offer many places to explore including Richmond Castle and theatre, and Leyburn Chocolate Shop.
