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: MOJ

    This beautiful, traditional stone-built farmhouse, dating back to the 18th century, stands in its own grounds boasting mature gardens and a stone-walled summer house. The buildings spread over 5000 sq feet with a unique layout built in stages over the 300 years. The combination of oak floors, wooden beams, panelled walls and a particularly beautiful dining room with a French marble fireplace and log fire gives the building an abundance of character and charm. It makes the perfect location for weekend celebrations or getaways for the whole family revelling in its size and warmth and activities including local river walks and cycle tracks surrounding the farm, golf, fishing, horse riding or simply exploring. Furthermore, after converting one of the stables into a small but well-stocked gym, the property offers the services of a resident personal trainer. From specialist advice for the keen amateur to a fun-filled, light-hearted introduction to wellbeing for the whole family, the trainer will also deliver a complimentary personal fitness profile. For the more serious, the trainer can be booked for the whole weekend, and the group will be treated to a fully personalised fitness and nutrition programme. Etherley Dene Farm is located in Bishop Auckland, the official residence of the bishops of Durham since the 12th century. The town provides many interesting attractions, including Auckland Castle with its splendid marble and limestone chapel and stained-glass windows that relate to stories of early Christian saints. Durham with its cathedral is just 12 miles and there is seasonal access to the steam railway and the glorious Durham Dales from the local station; rail enthusiasts can also visit Shildon ‘The cradle of the railways’ and its railway museum, 2 miles. The Dales and Hamsterley Forest are a short drive with cycling and walking routes (cycle hire by arrangement). In winter there may even be the chance to ski or board on fresh snow in Weardale only 25 minutes away. Quaint Barnard Castle with its impressive French-style chateau housing the Bowes Musuem is 12 miles and Beamish open-air Victorian museum is 30 minutes’ drive. Newcastle, with St. James’ Park, The Metro Arena, The Playhouse and The Sage, is within easy reach and Gateshead’s Metrocentre is less than 3 miles. Visit the spectacular World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, the majestic Northumbrian coast which stretches for miles passing Alnwick Castle, Craster, Alnmouth, Seahouses’ Bamburgh Castle and on to Holy Island (Lindisfarne). Supermarket home deliveries can be arranged but most supermarkets are within 1 mile. A garage shop is within ¼ mile. A family orientated pub serving meals is within ½ mile and a more traditional ‘drinking’ pub with TV sport is less than 100 yards.

    The property is situated only a short drive from Bishop Auckland which plays host to the magical Kynren Eleven Arches spectacular from July-September 2016. Kynren - an epic tale of England - promises to be a historical extravaganza with a cast of over 1,000 people set over 7.5 acres of County Durham. There’ll be 14 action packed and movie-like performances of colossal and dazzling proportions. The shows will incorporate a full size lake with pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects making it a true spectacle in every sense of the word!

    Lea Hall is a Grade II* listed 17th and 18th-century manor house sleeping 20 guests in 10 en-suite bedrooms. The former childhood home to the household name Florence Nightingale, this holiday property has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is set in the heart of rural Derbyshire. Located within the village of Lea, it has been sympathetically and stylishly furnished by the owner, and extras such as fine toiletries and bathrobes are also provided. The drawing room with crystal chandelier, open fire, flatscreen TV and soft furnishings is the perfect setting in which to relax. The dining room is set in the older part of the hall, which dates back to the 1600s, and has a wood-burning stove and seating for 20.
    The parish of Dethick, Lea and Holloway is steeped in history and Lea is recorded in the Domesday Book as Lede; the notorious Babington Plot of 1586 was planned at Dethick and Florence Nightingale spent much of her early life at Lea Hurst (and almost certainly lived at Lea Hall while that house was being built). The peaceful village of Lea offers visitors friendly pubs, tea rooms, restaurants and the famous John Smedley factory. Rural Derbyshire is a real treasure trove offering everything for the visitor including country houses, historic halls, medieval ruins, heritage railways, cycleways, beautiful unspoilt countryside and pretty villages. One of the closest attractions to Lea Hall is the Heights of Abraham. Built on the site of historic lead mining, the hilltop park is approached by cable car which rises up and offers some spectacular views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District. Visitors can tour the network of caverns and passageways left behind and explore the 60 acres of woodland hillside and buy souvenirs at the gift shop. Alternatively, for those who appreciate stately homes and gardens, magnificent Chatsworth House (3½ miles from Bakewell) is highly recommended, as well as Haddon Hall and Lyme Park, all of which have been film or TV locations over the years. Shop 1 mile.

    Built in 1820 as a veterinary practice to serve the Royal Sandringham Stud, Caradon House has been completely re-designed to provide an excellent base from which discerning guests can explore all that North Norfolk has to offer. Still a vets until the 1980s, the current owners have lovingly restored Caradon House to provide everything that guests could need. All of the rooms are decorated to a very high standard to provide light and airy accommodation, and with informal and formal dining areas, a large kitchen and separate cooking area, lots of well-appointed bathrooms, four areas in which to relax and unwind and a large garden to enjoy the sunshine in, everything really has been thought of to provide maximum comfort. Close by, quaint Norfolk fishing villages line the coast, offering beaches, quays and marshes galore to explore. In truth, there are far too many to name them all, but Brancaster, Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakeney are all within easy reach. There is also a series of nature reserves to explore, including the RSPB site, Titchwell Marsh, home to nesting avocets, bitterns and marsh harriers. From the little harbour at Brancaster Staithe, take a boat trip and enjoy the views of the coastline and a stop off at Scolt Head Island, a bird sanctuary and nature reserve. For a change of pace, and less than half an hour’s drive away, head to the Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton, with its beach that seems to go on for ever, unusual striped cliffs towering over 60 feet high, and a Sea Life Centre, fun fair, indoor swimming pool and a cliff-top golf course. In fact, golfers really will be spoilt for choice with The Royal West Norfolk (Brancaster) Golf Club, Hunstanton and Fakenham also close by. There is lots you can do to work up an appetite and, although the kitchen at Caradon House simply begs to be used, foodies will find lots of reasons to eat out as Norfolk’s burgeoning good food reputation continues to grow. Great food can be found virtually on the doorstep and a little further afield with all tastes catered for, often using local produce. With bustling market towns, great walks and cycle routes and so much to see and do, if you can tear yourself away from beautiful Caradon House, you really will be spoilt for choice. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
