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.

    Ocean Studios enjoy uninterrupted, panoramic sea views, taking in the beautiful Mounts Bay and the breathtaking St Michael’s Mount in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are set in the heart of the historic town of Marazion where legends of smuggling, shipwrecks and pirates abound! This unique coastal location is a shimmering, magical place to relax whatever the season.

    These two ground floor, semi-detached properties (refs UKC169, and UKC170 - which is the larger of the two properties) have been designed to a very good standard providing a waterfront setting. They are spacious with a contemporary ambience, a Mediterranean style that ensures guests can unwind in a relaxed and tranquil haven.

    Marazion has a wonderful selection of restaurants, tea rooms, cafés, delicatessen, friendly pubs, and art and craft shops. You can reach St Michael’s Mount on foot at low tide via a causeway, or at high tide by small boat. The long white sandy beach is ideal to relax, enjoy the sun and sea, and is equally appealing for an invigorating walk on a wild windy day during the winter.

    The accommodation is an ideal base from which to explore the delights of West Cornwall with Lands End, Sennen Cove, the quaint fishing harbours of Newlyn and Mousehole all close by. Penzance, St Ives, the Minack Theatre and sub tropical gardens are worth a day out, and wildlife enthusiasts will love the bird marshes on the outskirts of Marazion.

    The area attracts walkers, art lovers and water sports enthusiasts (Marazion is popular with kite surfers, wind surfers and for kayaking).

    At the end of the day, return to the studios for a glass of your favourite tipple on the patio, the perfect place to unwind and relax on and watch the sun setting. A variety of small, quality shops, friendly pubs and a great selection of restaurants all within 500 yards.
    These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 4 guests.
