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.

    Nestling in countryside, just on the outskirts of the vibrant, riverside town of Dartmouth, Lower Collaton is a hidden gem of an old homestead farm, dating back to the Domesday Book. Here there are 3 converted barns which offer super holiday accommodation, lying just across the courtyard from the owners’ ancient farmhouse. The owners keep a handful of pedigree Jacob and Shetland sheep, which graze the surrounding meadows. Chickens roam freely in the pretty courtyard to the front of the barns. The Stables is a detached stone barn, with delightful living accommodation for 4 people, with high vaulted ceilings, exposed trusses and a woodburner in the living room. The Old Granary is tucked away in the corner of the grassy courtyard and is a little cosy nest for 2 people. Compact, detached and cosy, it was imaginatively designed by the owners’ daughter. The Byre is where the milking parlour used to be, and in the living room the names of the cows are displayed on the original manger name plaques. This property, which sleeps 4 people, has a living room with spectacular vaulted ceilings and the original scissor beams. The area is surrounded by rolling hills in the tranquil valley of the River Gara, midway between Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge making it a perfect location for exploring this beautiful region of South Devon. From the moors of Dartmoor to the shores of the South Devon coast, there is much to do in the region. Spend a day shopping and eating in the historic naval town of Dartmouth, or explore the many beaches and coves along the beautiful coastline. There is plenty to do in the area: Woodlands Country Park is ideal for the children, or you can walk along the South Devon Coastal Path, catch a ferry across the river at Dartmouth to Kingswear, and then take a steam train along the estuary to Greenway and Paignton. There are boat trips along the coast from Dartmouth to the busier resorts of Torquay and Paignton on the English Riviera. Enjoy an afternoon at Greenway sampling high tea at Agatha Christie’s former home. Beach 5 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
