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.

From classic country abodes to state-of-the-art barn conversions, this collection of self-catering properties suits all kinds of holidaymakers. Situated in an elevated position, Wooldown enjoys a fresh, salty breeze blowing in from the Atlantic, and the views are most compelling.

A little closer to home, you can walk right from Wooldown through the village of Marhamchurch, and along the level towpath which follows the canal. There are otters and kingfishers to spot on the way, and you can pop into the nearby bistro and coffee house for a snack en-route. For more adventurous visitors, Bude plays a big part in the surfing community due to its nearby beaches, such as Widemouth Bay, Sandymouth and Crooklets, which are all within 3 miles of Wooldown.

    Ref: CC132178
    Appleby Castle is situated deep in the heart of the beautiful Eden Valley, just 15 miles from the Lake District, nestling alongside the meandering River Eden. This spectacular motte and bailey castle has been held by the Kings of England and Scotland and boasts one of the few remaining intact Norman keeps in Great Britain. In the 17th Century, the castle was the preferred residence of Lady Anne Clifford. She was a patron of authors and literature and known for her many letters and diaries.

    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 3 is one of three holiday properties which make up part of the inner bailey wall and medieval defences, which stand adjacent to the Norman Keep which has hardly changed over the past 900 years. The old great hall, built in 1454, stands across the courtyard and guests are welcome to take a tour with afternoon tea during their stay (at an additional charge).

    Appleby Castle owns the fishing rights on both sides of the River Eden immediately beneath the weir. This is prime fishing territory and salmon, trout and grayling abound in this special stretch of river. Fishing rights are exclusively for castle guests.

    Appleby is built in the curve of the River Eden and is a traditional medieval town with the castle at the top of the hill sloping gently downhill to the church. This is one of the prettiest market towns in England and despite once being the county town of Westmorland, it retains a village atmosphere with a great deal of interest and charm. One of it’s famous residents, the father of George Washington, Augustine Washington, grew up in Cumberland and attended Appleby Grammar School with his elder brother John. Situated in the beautiful Eden Valley, the location is superb for exploring the highlights of the North of England as it separates the Lakes District fells from the Pennines and also gives easy access to the Yorkshire and Durham Dales. The scenic Carlisle to Settle railway route runs through Appleby and makes a great day out. Further afield, the Northumberland National Park along with Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Border are within an hour’s drive. Superb walking, cycling, golf and fishing are all available nearby.

    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 3 can be booked together with Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 2 (CC132177) and Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 1 (CC132176) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
