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.

    The Georgian Pad is a lovely spacious first floor apartment situated right in the heart of the old town of Bridlington, a relatively quiet place due to the fact that a lot of tourists who visit Bridlington are unaware that this part of the town exists. However, the old town is full of charm and history which can be seen just by rambling through the streets and alleyways. The street is full of life with very good restaurants, antique and craft shops. Each year the Dickensian Fair is held here, with performers and musicians to entertain you. From the window of the apartment, you can spend many an hour watching the world go by. With an array of beautiful Georgian buildings around, the architecture is stunning. There is an excellent view of the Bayle, which was built as the gateway to the priory church, and it now houses a museum. The church was originally part of one of England’s leading monasteries. The surviving nave of the church is now a thriving parish church with a wealth of historic features.

    Bridlington is a traditional seaside resort with something for all age groups - a perfect base to visit the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds. Further along the coast, visit the resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Flamborough Head. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is close by where you will find puffins, gannets and guillemots in their natural habitat. The chalk cliffs provide a safe haven for their breeding season. The stately homes of Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes and Sledmere are all just a short drive away. The Bridlington Spa has some fantastic shows on right throughout the year so there is plenty of nightlife down by the seafront but the Georgian Pad is that quiet little retreat to go back to.

    Lounge/dining room: Spacious with 32" Freeview TV and radio.
