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.

    Forming part of a Grade ll listed Georgian house, this self-contained lower ground floor apartment is steeped in history. Just two steps down from street level, its private front door would once have been the servants’ entrance to the house above. Built around 1730 the house stands on the foundations of a medieval stone cottage that was originally on the site. Later on, this lower floor served for many years as the local dairy with milk being dispensed from churns and delivered around the old town by horse and cart.


    Bright, light and characterful, this lovely apartment balances style and comfort in equal measure. With its underfloor heating and multi-fuel burner, it’s a superb place to come back to after that long walk along the cliff tops. The Cleveland Way passes through Scarborough to its final destination in Filey, so there are plenty of good walks right from your doorstep.

Just a two minute walk and you can be sat on the beach. Scarborough is famous for its two bays, the North and South Bay. They are both very different in that the South Bay is the livelier of the two, with donkeys, amusements and traditional seaside facilities, whereas the North Bay is a quiet bay overlooked by Scarborough Castle.


    The resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are just a short drive away, with their award winning beaches. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is well worth a visit. You’ll see thousands of puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat as well as the seals that lounge on the rocks. In the area there are plenty of stately homes to visit such as Castle Howard, home to the filming of Brideshead Revisited, Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall. The medieval city of York can be reached in less than an hour by train or by car. With plenty to see and do there, it makes for a great day out. Visit some of the local market towns such as Pickering, Beverley and Driffield, all selling local produce and gifts.
