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.

Pretty Bovey Tracey, one mile, with its numerous shops, pubs and cafes, is known as the ‘Gateway to Dartmoor’, which has one of the best known national parks, offers stunning scenery to ride, walk and fish in. There are a variety of golf clubs nearby. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks, through woodland, along the coast or nearby on Dartmoor. Dartmoor has so much to offer from its heather-clad tors to dramatic landscapes, Dartmoor ponies, to quaint villages offering Devon cream teas. For a family day out take a trip to Crealy, or spend a day in Exeter, visit the magnificent cathedral, shops, take a look around the quay where there are little caves turned into shops, or walk the canal path and find the hidden pubs only reached by foot. Torquay offers boat trips from the harbour over to Brixham, or visit Living Coasts where penguins wander freely. Further afield visit the Eden Project or Plymouth to take in the Barbican and the Hoe, or visit the huge aquarium, another great day out. Agatha Christie’s house at Greenway is a must for fans of crime novels. There are many National Trust properties all close to Little Dunley, also visit Dart Valley Steam Train, or Buckfastleigh and see the otters. There are many sandy beaches nearby, or spend a day at Lyme Regis fossil hunting. The Jurassic Coast is spectacular and it is well worth taking a walk on the coastal path. Shop 1 mile.

    "Character farm cottages in glorious countryside above an unspoilt hidden valley...with all-weather leisure facilities"

    Robin Hill Farm is set in 14 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in the North Devon biosphere. The six properties, converted from stone farm barns and buildings, are centred around the old cobbled farmyard. The location offers a peaceful and secluded setting away from the daily hustle and bustle, yet it is only 3 miles to shops, entertainment and the beach. Inside the holiday cottages are well furnished and provide a relaxing haven after a long day sightseeing, walking, cycling or on the beach. The heated indoor swimming pool room includes a hot tub and a stunning conservatory attached. Learn to swim, with tuition from qualified instructors. From the conservatory and decking area guests can enjoy the beautiful views over the valley towards Exmoor, whilst drying off or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine no matter what the weather. There is a very well equipped games room for all ages and for big and little kids video games can be enjoyed on a 60in plasma screen.
    Outside the grounds have been landscaped to create two play areas, one with ball games, the other with playhouse and climbing frame. A communal patio means that adults can relax whilst watching their children play. Guests can enjoy the farm’s 14 acres of land and woodland walk which are host to a variety of wildlife and wild flowers with lovely views of Jennetts Reservoir. Nearby there is plenty to keep visitors busy. Many quaint villages await discovery - the photogenic ‘chocolate box’ village of Clovelly being of particular note. Appledore offers all the olde worlde charm of a fishing village, famous for its arts, crafts and maritime heritage. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being Westward Ho! Walkers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the coastal path, while the Tarka Trail traces the steps of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter and provides miles of traffic-free cycling (and walking) - bikes can be stored securely or hired locally. Award-winning farm parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep, will fascinate the younger ones. Gardens within 30 minutes’ drive include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Tapeley Park. Several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in Littleham village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shops 3 miles, pub 1½ miles.

    Straddling the borders of Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset, this charming row of single-storey cottages is tucked away along a peaceful country lane, close to the village of Templecombe. Adjacent to the owners’ home, and on an alpaca breeding farm, they offer well-equipped and carefully furnished accommodation for a variety of groups, in a central location ideal for exploring. Outdoor seating areas overlooking a central courtyard provide pleasant places of retreat, and the use of an indoor heated swimming pool completes the picture.
    Set amid excellent walking country, the holiday cottages afford ample opportunities for plenty of fresh air, and there are many delights to explore on foot. For those preferring to sightsee further afield, a main line station to Waterloo and Exeter is available from the village and quiet country roads make for scenic drives. The popular attractions of Longleat (with its excellent safari park, animal shows and historic house), Cheddar Gorge and Caves and the splendid NT properties of Stourhead Gardens, Kingston Lacey and Montacute House are all within an easy drive, as is Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the fascinating array of classic cars at the Haynes Motor Museum.
    Also of great historical interest is the abbey town of Sherborne, the famous Gold Hill at Shaftesbury and the medieval towns of Salisbury and Wells – all offer their own blend of quaint shops and museums to explore, individual shops to browse and tearooms for a welcome refreshment break. For an altogether different scene, the south coast beaches and seaside towns can be reached in around an hour’s drive. Active souls can try their hand at a spot of fishing or a round or two of golf locally, while those preferring spectator sports can visit the National Hunt race course in nearby Wincanton. Shop and pub 1 mile.
