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.

    The holiday location makes it a superb base from which to explore the many and varied attractions of South Devon. Nearby Thurlestone stands as a pretty ‘chocolate-box’ village, with its pink-washed thatched cottages and unspoilt sandy beach framed by rolling farmland. The busy market town of Kingsbridge with its fine Tudor and Georgian buildings acts as the ‘capital’ of the South Hams region, and serves as the hub of local transport services to the surrounding villages. During the summer months, a ferry runs from here to Devon’s most southerly resort of Salcombe, once a former fishing village and now a major sailing resort thronging with visitors. A few miles south of Salcombe at Sharpitor, the National Trust oversees the elegant Edwardian house of Otto Overbeck, a scientist whose varied collection of items is on display to the public. Overlooking the Salcombe estuary, the beautiful garden of Overbecks enjoys fine views and is home to a selection of rare plants, trees and shrubs growing within its warm microclimate.

    In the opposite direction lies Plymouth, with its many naval and seafaring connections. Rebuilt after the Second World War, it stands as a complex mixture of modern day facilities and attractions with strong roots in history – the Barbican area around Sutton Harbour retaining many links. The Elizabethan House found here is furnished as it would have been in the time of Sir Francis Drake (who set out from Plymouth to circumnavigate the world), and the Island House is another place of note – believed to have been where the Pilgrim Fathers lodged before setting sail for America. From Plymouth, river and fishing trips can be arranged and there are sailing and windsurfing schools. Shop in Bigbury.

    Enjoying open views, Meadow Cottage is an extended, semi-detached farmhouse offering spacious, contemporary and comfortable accommodation for nine people. Set in its own gardens and 1-acre paddock (ideal for football and rounders), it enjoys beautiful views across the countryside. Close to the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, it lies just a few minutes’ walk from old cress beds, now a nature reserve and less than ½ mile from the nearest train station. Spurn Point Nature Reserve is also just over an hour away. The historic city of Lincoln is within easy driving distance, as well as a stunning coastline of beaches. Healing village has a hotel offering wonderful dinners and afternoon teas, a village shop and a post office, as well as a fish and chip shop. Situated close to the north east coastline, with easy access from the main road networks, it makes a great base from which to explore the area, with good walks and cycle routes from the door. Alternatively, it is just as admirable to simply sit back and relax in the private hot tub. The nearest seaside resort is Cleethorpes, where you will find sandy beaches and traditional seaside attractions, including a multi-screen cinema and ten pin bowling. Situated just 5 miles away are the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is also the highest area of land in eastern England. If you fancy heading further afield, then the Humber Bridge is 25 miles away, and is the seventh-longest in the world connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Alternatively, for a bit of retail therapy and a spot of lunch with friends, or a visit to The Deep (a huge aquarium), Hull is situated 30 miles away. Beverley Minster, one of the largest parish churches in the Church of England, is situated 35 miles away, and is considered a Gothic masterpiece by many people. For golfers, Grimsby has a very good golf club and course to enjoy. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
