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.

    Ref: CC245032
    The original coach house that served the Vicarage of Ulrome has been renovated to an excellent standard to make a charming and quaint hideaway. The cottage is set in stunning grounds overlooking the duck pond with many friendly inhabitants. You’ll spend many an hour sat on the patio watching the wildlife.

    The village of Ulrome is situated between Bridlington and Hornsea making it a perfect base to visit the east coast, the Wolds and the North Yorkshire Moors. A short walk from the house brings you to the beach at Ulrome, which is reached by steps. Hornsea, a short drive, is well known for its popular outlet village. There is also Hornsea Mere, which at two and a half miles long is Yorkshire’s largest freshwater lake. It attracts wildlife and rare species, ideal for those birdwatchers amongst you.

    The market town of Beverley is one of Yorkshire’s best kept secrets and is just a 20-minute drive away. Beverley Minster is known for its abundance of stone carvings, stained glass and decoration. History buffs, music lovers and shoppers are attracted to the town’s pretty cobbled streets and courtyards.

    Bridlington is a traditional Victorian seaside resort with fantastic beaches stretching to Sewerby. It still has a very busy working harbour where you can sit for many an hour watching the fishermen bring in their catch.

    Be sure to visit the Old Town of Bridlington with its narrow streets and stunning Georgian houses. The alleyways hide the little antique and art shops so take time to meander and you will not be disappointed. Bridlington Priory can be found in the Old Town, one of the most stunning buildings you will see. Here you can watch one of their musical events, listen to the choirs or just enjoy one of the many services. On an evening there are plenty of restaurants, bars and of course The Spa, where you can see International acts throughout the year.

    During your stay why not visit the city of York? In less than an hour you can be in the centre of York for some fantastic shopping or be a tourist and hop on one of the many tourist buses that take you around this beautiful city. You can walk around the city on the medieval walls or sail along the river on a cruise.
