Find cottages in 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: 30209


    Located in a peaceful hamlet ideal for touring the beautiful Lizard peninsula, Skyber Cottage, adjacent to the owners’ home, is the perfect holiday destination for small families or couples looking for a relaxing break. Sitting in a pretty rural hamlet close to the village of Ruan Minor, the most southerly part of the British mainland, is a place apart. A combination of the mild maritime climate, and complex and unique geology, has produced an area with a distinctive character, well known for its rare and unusual flora, and where the famous call of the Cornish chough is never far away. The Lizard Peninsula is also renowned as the birthplace of communication, where Marconi undertook some of his pioneering radio experiments. These experiments are celebrated at the Marconi Centre at Poldhu and the Lizard Wireless Station. National Trust places on the Lizard Peninsula range from the dramatic coastal scenery around Lizard Point, to the beautiful ancient woodland around the Helford River. Two miles to the north of Lizard Village lies the secluded Kynance Cove, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and a few miles further along this stretch of coast the beautiful picture-postcard harbour at Mullion Cove. The area has a wealth of wildlife and some of the UK’s most stunning scenic coastal paths. Discover the working fishing village of Cadgwith, with its thatched cottages, inn and gig house clustered around the cove. The coastal path offers stunning cliff scenery, much of it National Trust, and walks to the Lizard Village, lighthouse and the most southerly point, as well as to other well-known beauty spots, such as Kynance, Poltesco and Kennack Sands. As complete contrasts, only a matter of a few minutes’ drive away are the wild, open heathland of Goonhilly Downs, dominated by the dramatic Satellite Earth Station (open to the public) which is now a nature reserve and recognised as a site of international botanical importance. Nearby is the sheltered and peaceful Helford River, which attracts yachtsmen from all over the world and is well known for its sub-tropical gardens and secluded villages, such as Helford with its delightful riverside inn and its enchanted wooded creekside walks, made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s romantic novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. Boats can be hired by those who wish to take to the water. The rare geology of the area creates a haven for exceptional plants and flowers. Around the coastline you’ll find little fishing ports with huge granite sea walls to protect from the Atlantic gales, restaurants specialising in freshly caught seafood, and gorgeous sandy bays with jagged black rocks jutting out in to the sea. The villages are picture book perfect with tiny thatched cottages clinging together at the ends of the valley, in coves where a small fleet of fishing boats catch fresh crab and lobster. Enjoy the pubs by the shore with folk music and traditional Cornish singing. The area is ideal for walking, cycling, sailing, bird and wild ife watching, water sports, fishing or simply relaxing back at the cottage in the delightful grounds with a good book and drink. Beach 1 mile. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    All on ground floor: Living/dining room/1 step to kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin (zip and link, can be double). 2 steps to shower room with toilet.
