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.

    In the heart of the Pennines, Lee Royd lies in Hebden Bridge, a Yorkshire town famed for its artistic identity and as a centre for outdoor pursuits. Hebden Bridge is the unconventional centre of a distinctly non-metropolitan arts scene, and annual events include no less than eight festivals, covering music, arts and poetry. Hebden Bridge is also perfect as a centre for walking and cycling.
    Home to artists, actors, musicians and writers, and inspired by the surrounding rolling countryside, the pretty cobbled streets of Hebden Bridge are overflowing with pop-up galleries and independent book and craft shops. The local picture house, an attraction in itself, shows not only films, but broadcasts live events from major stand-up comedians to international music acts. Real ale and music lovers alike are catered for with some of the pubs playing host to local musicians. The esteemed Trades Club hosts international artists ranging from Patti Smith and Laura Marling to Fairport Convention.
    Ted Hughes, the poet laureate, was born nearby, and his first wife, the American poet Sylvia Plath (as well as Hughes’ parents) are buried locally in historic Heptonstall, a scenic twenty minute walk up the wooded and heathered hill behind the house, where roe deer may wander. The view over the valley below and towards Studeley Pike is quite spectacular. An extensive library of their history and work is available within this property together with a selection of walking books and maps.
    As Britain’s first official ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town, unsurprisingly, there is excellent walking nearby with the Calderdale Way and also the Pennine Way, and its latest extension, the Hebden Bridge Loop, going straight past the property. Hardcastle Crags, owned by the National Trust, is a must see with its beautiful wooded valley, streams, kingfishers and carpet of bluebells in the spring. The Rochdale canal winds its way through Hebden Bridge, with a tow path that offers level walking and cycling and is ideal for picnics, as well as being a water-colourist’s and photographer’s dream (as is the south-facing view over the Calder Valley from the property’s veranda).
    More challenging cycling, as featured on the 2014 Tour de France, and 2015’s Tour de Yorkshire can also be enjoyed from the doorstep. Ideally positioned between two national parks, a fine walk or scenic drive can take you to Haworth’s Brontë Country, with its steam railway of ‘Railway Children’ fame. The walk takes you past ’Top Withins’, Emily Brontë’s inspiration for ‘Wuthering Heights’. A pleasant drive further north takes you to the Yorkshire Dales, or south to the TV series ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country. Hebden Bridge and the surrounding area lend themselves to filming and have featured in the Ray Winstone film ‘Fanny and Elvis’ and the TV series ‘Happy Valley’ and ‘Last Tango in Halifax’.
    The property itself is a cosy Yorkshire stone house full of traditional character and charm. There are many original Victorian features including an impressive stone fireplace which was re-discovered beneath the 1970s plaster work when renovated in 2000. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with wooden floors. First floor: 2 twin bedrooms. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Second floor: 1 double (6ft) bedroom.

    Multi-fuel burner in living room (initial fuel included). Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot on request. Freeview TV. DVD. Gas cooker. Microwave.
