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.

    "Charming cottages situated in a scenic holiday location, which form an ideal base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the North Yorkshire Coast..."

    Killerby Old Hall and its 7 cottages are ideal for a countryside holiday whilst being less than 2 miles from the beach of Cayton Bay. Guests can enjoy the nature reserve and lake area, or relax in the indoor heated swimming pool.

Set in a pretty courtyard, each cottage is different yet has its own sitting-out area with patio furniture and BBQ.
    Killerby Old Hall is situated between the coastal resorts of family friendly Filey, with its cobble landing and pretty promenade, and Scarborough, with its vibrant South Bay and naturally picturesque North Bay, located on part of Britain’s heritage coast.

The forest offers a range of activities including mountain bike tracks, or for those feeling adventurous there is Go Ape. It is also a popular picnic destination which is surrounded by walks that the whole family can enjoy. Travel a little further afield to Castle Howard with its stunning house and grounds. The ancient, Roman walled city of York sits just an hour up the A64, a famously haunted city with many attractions such as the railway museum, river trips and excellent shopping.

    Conveniently located for Longleat, Bath and the Mendip Hills and Gorges, Moorleaze nestles on the border of Somerset with Dorset and Wiltshire. Enjoying a tranquil setting with stunning views all around, it provides the perfect retreat at any time of year. Built from local stone and boasting every modern convenience, the cottages offer spacious and superbly fitted accommodation, presented to 5 Star standards. The 76-acre grounds include farmland, woodland, orchard and two lakes, whilst the glorious views encompass fields and gently wooded hills. A haven for wildlife, deer and hares abound, often coming within yards of the cottages. Buzzards, kestrels, tawny and barn owls, pheasants, swallows and many other species nest here. The lower lake is stocked with carp, tame enough to feed from guests’ hands - so no fishing! The idyllic village of Witham Friary, complete with an unspoiled pub, is a few minutes’ stroll and found fame as the setting for the TV series Building the Dream.
    Benefiting from its countryside setting, Moorleaze also affords easy access all year round and is within a short driving distance of many famous locations. Longleat is close by, as are Wookey Hole and the Yeovilton Aircraft and Haynes Motor Museums. Bath, designated a World Heritage Site, boasts many delights including the Roman Baths. Nearby Frome has even more listed buildings than Bath and hosts a renowned arts and music festival in early July. Salisbury, Wells, Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Avebury are also popular places to visit from Moorleaze. NT properties include the incomparable Stourhead, just minutes away.

    Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel, Yenworthy Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’ still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen. This is one of two traditional barns in the courtyard of the farm and has been sympathetically converted to offer a very high standard of accommodation throughout.
    Yenworthy is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest and rare species of butterflies and trees. The nearest sandy beach is Lee Abbey (5 miles) and there are excellent surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton within easy driving distance.

    This superb, Grade II listed, medieval town house dates back to the early 14th century and enjoys a wonderful location. Set within the walled enclave surrounding Salisbury Cathedral, it has direct access to the city centre. It is a surprisingly light and spacious home with an abundance of charm and character, including flagstone floors, exposed brick walls, an Aga and wooden, turning, steep stairs, as well as some low sloping ceilings and beams. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, leading to the garden/breakfast room with French doors leading to the walled garden which has a patio, sitting out area and various ornamental shrubs and trees sheltering the property. There is a ground floor living/dining room in addition to a spacious first floor family/TV room, three bathrooms and five bedrooms (one of the top floor twin bedrooms has two additional beds for occasional guests or alternative sleeping). There is private parking for 1-2 cars and public parking from £6 per day locally.
    Vicar’s Hall, as its name suggests, was reclaimed in the Restoration by the local vicars. Prior to that, the only named owner was William de Chadleshunt, the Archdeacon of Salisbury in 1304.
    Malmesbury House, with its famous sundial inscribed with ‘Life’s But a Walking Shadow’, is opposite the property, and adjacent is St Anns Gate. All of the surrounding gates are locked at 11pm each night (owners will supply a key). The author Bill Bryson once commented, ’There is no doubt, in my mind, that Salisbury Cathedral is the single most breathtaking structure in England, and The Close around it is the most beautiful space.’
    Salisbury Cathedral draws people from around the world, with its ornate beauty. It also has Britain’s tallest spire, Europe’s oldest clock and one of the original (and best preserved) copies of the Magna Carta. There are various events within the cathedral, including ‘Darkness into Light’, musical services, theatre productions, as well as singing by the choir. Salisbury is a lively, vibrant city with a range of shops, arts, crafts and entertainment, and has a twice weekly charter market. There are lots of eateries, inns and leisure amenities. The train station is about 10 minutes’ walk, for those who prefer a car-free holiday, where there are tour buses to Stonehenge and other local attractions. Visit Old Sarum, an early settlement and an English Heritage Site, and Old Wardour Castle, which is a 14th-century structure set in gardens besides a lake. Within easy driving distance are Stonehenge, Monkey World, The Tank Museum, scenic walks along the Avebury Rings, the Fovant Badges (regimental badges carved into the chalk hills), and the Museum of Army Flying. The New Forest and various beaches, including Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch, are about 45 minutes’ drive. Beach 30 miles. Shop 800 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
