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.

    This super, unique, detached beach house includes two converted railway carriages, one of only a few to be seen along the south coast, and enjoys a fabulous location directly on the seafront. Step onto the pebble beach via your private gate from the enclosed garden, and enjoy miles of pebble/sandy beach – a haven for all ages, including children and dogs all year round! From the front it is deceptive, having been substantially extended, but once you approach the side entrance, the original features can be easily seen. Inside, the traditional carriage doors still remain, and many of the rooms are set inside the former train carriages. Southern Bell offers tastefully styled, light and airy holiday accommodation for families - with an enclosed patio garden, plenty of off-road parking and a short walk from the local shops, eateries/pubs and harbour/sailing club. Hayling Island is renowned for its windsurfing and sailing activities and local paddle - boarding and windsurfing lessons are available close by. Every year there is a national windsurfing event, and a plethora of sailing and nautical activity can be seen along the coastline. Many activities can be enjoyed locally, including golf, cycling, boat trips and scenic walks along the water’s edge or along the South Downs National Park which are within easy reach. Chichester with its beautiful cathedral, festival theatre, pedestrianised shopping, leisure centre, Roman Villa and Goodwood or Fontwell races is definitely worthy of a visit. Visit Portsmouth with waterside dining, ferry trips to the Isle of Wight, designer outlets, leisure facilities, Spinnaker Tower, Historic Dockyard including HMS Victory and the Mary Rose, or the maritime history at Southampton. Winchester, with its cathedral and abbey, and The New Forest are within easy driving distance. Plenty of National Trust homes and gardens can also be discovered nearby. Beach 5 yards.

    Set within the pretty Fenland village of Welney, Croft House is a rustic Victorian property which has been lovingly restored with authentic original features from its past. It keeps its original pine floorboards and doors (some with etched glass), slate fireplaces (one with Victorian tiles), plus the dinner set is English China from Royal Worcester. Previously the village shop, the glass frontage has been retained to allow the light to flood in, while wooden shutters have been thoughtfully placed to provide privacy to guests. The waterway which runs in front of the house and under the garden is called Croft River. In earlier days, it was much wider and was used to transport the stone blocks which were used to build Ely Cathedral, which still stands proud to this day overlooking the Fens and is, in fact, known as The Ship of the Fens. Croft House has been furnished to provide lots of light and space for its discerning guests and the owner has been careful to maintain floor space by using clever decorating tricks such as replacing heavy furniture such as wardrobes with artisan coat stands. Locally, there is much to explore beyond the magnificent cathedral. In Ely, you will also find The Stained Glass Museum, the Prickwillow Drainage Engine Museum, which tells the fascinating story of how the Fenlands were created, and lots of artisan shops, cafés and restaurants. Welney Wetland Centre offers visitors year-round opportunities to view wildlife, and The Fens themselves are the home to many species of birds. A trip to the university city of Cambridge is also a must, with its wealth of museums, including The Fitzpatrick and its numerous colleges. There are lots of walking tours available, along with opportunities to go punting on the River Cam. Also worth a visit is the Hanseatic port of Kings Lynn, with its picturesque old quarter. And, for a change of pace, you can be at the coast in under an hour and enjoy the wide sandy beach at Hunstanton, known by the locals as ‘Sunny Hunny’. Add in lots of walks, cycle routes and many great places to eat and you will see why this has become such a popular area to visit. And, after a long day of fun and adventures, you can relax at Croft House and enjoy sweet dreams in one of the high quality beds that have been provided for your comfort, just another reason why Croft House is such a great choice. Shop 6½ miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
