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.

    Glanmore is a beautifully presented bungalow furnished to a very good standard. The three bedroomed property is very spacious with good sized bedrooms and lounge area. The rear garden is south facing so you get the sunshine all day. The garden is private and enclosed with views across the countryside.

    Cayton is located between Scarborough and the quiet, family friendly resort of Filey, and is a village with all the amenities you would need. There are a couple of shops, a pub and a post office. Cayton Bay is just under a mile away and can be reached by car or by foot, it’s approximately a 30 minute walk down to the sands. This is a very popular beach especially for families.

    Scarborough is the nearest town and here you’ll find an abundance of things to do from shopping, the theatre, restaurants and of course the award-winning beaches. Scarborough has two bays, both very different. The north bay is much quieter with beautiful scenery and a large sandy beach whereas the south bay has the hustle and bustle of a traditional seaside resort with amusements, donkeys, sandcastles and fish and chips, so something to suit everybody. The flat walk along the seafront is over three miles long so perfect for that evening stroll. At the far end of the bays you’ll find the Sea Life Centre, a great attraction for the kids. Further down the coast there’s Filey, Flamborough Head and the traditional Victorian seaside resort of Bridlington. The RSPB nature reserve at Bempton is definitely worth a visit where you can see the puffins and seals in their natural habitat. Yorkshire is famous for its stately homes and there’s quite a few within close proximity of Glanmore. Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall and Castle Howard are all worth a visit.

    Exploring the North York Moors is also possible. A steam train from Pickering takes you up through Goathland and on to Whitby crossing the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors and Heartbeat country. The city of York is just an hours’ drive away or you can get the train direct to the centre. Visit the minster, a magnificent cathedral which draws visitors from all over the world. There are open top tourist buses and river cruises that give you a chance to see the city and learn about its fascinating history.

    Ground Floor: The property is all on the ground floor, has gas central heating and comprises:
