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.

    The Bobbin is a charming converted barn which started its life as a cow and pig sty. Lovingly-presented, The Bobbin is a wonderful cottage which still retains many of its original features, such as the feeding trough as you walk through the front door and beautiful exposed stone walls.
    Set on the edge of the Peak District National Park, there is plenty to see and do from the doorstep, with many walking and cycle trails, and one leads through Ashover, a pretty village which boasts a unique downloadable audio trail, with the ability to bring the whole route to life. The River Amber flows through the village which is well known for the Ashover show in August and the festival in September.
    Ogston Reservoir is just 2½ miles away where guests can enjoy water sports, birdwatching and fishing. Both Matlock and Matlock Bath with its cable car ride to Abraham Heights is only 3 miles, where you can tour the Mining Museum or walk alongside the River Derwent. Why not take a drive to Crich Tramway Museum, Chatsworth House, Bakewell or Haddon, which are all well worth a visit. The historical town of Chesterfield is around a 20-minute drive with its crooked spire and lively market. Shop 1 mile, pub with restaurant ¼ mile.

    Ref: UKC742

    Lower Elsford Farm has an abundance of wildlife and jaw dropping views across Dartmoor National Park and the famous Lustleigh Cleave. The farm is complete with an indoor heated swimming pool, games room and children’s play area. There are four cottages within the complex, each has its own character and have been decorated and furnished to a good standard. These properties are in an ideal location for a holiday for family or friends, and can be booked together to accommodate larger parties. Each property has its own enclosed private seating area with a barbecue. Located in an excellent position, allowing you to explore not only the 32 acre grounds, but all parts of Devon, and in particular, the 368 square miles of Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its quaint villages, meandering streams, dramatic scenery, wild ponies and varied wildlife. The grounds include an ancient stone row, 5 acres of rough moorland, two ponds and a tumbling stream.
    Lower Elsford is bordered to the west by Woodland Trust and Dartmoor National Park Woods. Indigenous oak trees are covered with lichen, demonstrating the purity of the air; whilst water is provided by the farm’s own natural Dartmoor spring. Views from the fields are magnificent, stretching over the moor to Hound Tor and Haytor Rocks, and on a clear day as far as the coast at Berry Head, with glimpses of the sea. Wildlife abounds, including a badger set, deer, foxes, buzzards, and in season the bluebells and snowdrops flourish. Time does not seem to move quite so fast down here. Peace and tranquillity is the speciality, whilst Lower Elsford Farm is still within easy travelling distance of many local attractions. Guests are free to help themselves to any eggs they find, courtesy of the farm’s resident chickens. Dartmoor served as the inspiration for Conan Doyle’s classic novels Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles, and as the backdrop for the film, War Horse. Dartmoor has the largest number of archaeological remains in Europe. So if it is stone circles, menhirs, stone crosses and ancient villages that get you excited, look no further. Located within Dartmoor National Park, the farm is listed in the Domesday Book. There has been a settlement here for at least 600 years. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
