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.

    All the apartment living rooms and most of the bedrooms offer amazing unspoilt views over the adjacent farmland, golf course and tidal estuary, to the rolling wooded uplands across Morecambe Bay, and to the distant Pennine Hills beyond. Visitors are regularly impressed by the size and quality of the building structure, the spacious apartments living space, which is enhanced by high corniced ceilings and large windows, quality furnishings and decor, with an antique and period style which complements the contemporary kitchens and bathrooms with their creature comforts.
    Resident proprietors are normally available to meet, greet and show guests around their accommodation, where a fruit bowl, flowers and a welcoming tea tray are provided. Their unobtrusive on-site presence is regularly appreciated if and when a prompt problem solution or local knowledge are required.

The town has retained its tasteful, low-key character since the mid Victorian railway arrival changed a sleepy fishing village into a genteel holiday resort. Not renowned for its nightlife and amusement arcades, Grange-over-Sands is still appreciated by those looking for quiet quality, with nearby Cartmel, the birthplace of sticky toffee puddings, providing popular summer time National Hunt race meetings, several gastro pubs and the nationally acclaimed L’Enclume restaurant amongst the historical cottages clustering around its magnificent 12th-century priory church.
