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.

    Trinity Mews holiday apartments are located in the very heart of Torquay. Situated just off the harbour and within a short walk of a wide selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and entertainment - yet based in a tranquil setting on a quiet no-through road. These picturesque mews apartments provide ideal self-catering accommodation for holidays at any time of the year.

    There are miles of walks including along the South West Coastal Path, over Dartmoor and riverside walks. Swimming and beaches can be found along the 22 miles of the English Riviera coastline, where there are 20 beaches from wide sandy stretches to hidden rocky coves. Boat trips in the bay are bookable from the harbourside and piers, and small boats and pedaloes for hire from most beaches. There is an attractive list of sailings for trips by sea or river bookable at Princess Pier, Haldon Pier and the harbourside, while there is unequalled sailing and yachting in Torbay, and the regattas in August are a superb spectacle. The Royal Torbay Yacht Club is at Beacon Terrace, a short walk away, and for those wishing to learn more there are two sailing clubs in Torquay. Sea fishing is available from Princess Pier and Haldon Pier, or from rocks and beaches around the coastline. The beautifully situated 18 hole course at Torquay Golf Club is on Petitor Road, Saint Marychurch.
    Going further afield, you can ramble across the wilds of Dartmoor National Park, see the Dartmoor Ponies, and visit places of interest such as Widdecombe, while Totnes and Dartington Hall are less than 30 minutes away. Totnes is an Elizabethan river town with an ancient castle, and Dartington Hall has glorious gardens and world famous arts and music activities, making this an essential place to visit. Dartmouth, Dartmoor, Salcombe, Exeter and Plymouth can all be easily reached. Paignton Zoo is only a mile or so away and there are river and sea cruises and steam train trips nearby. In addition to this, the South Hams has some of the most beautiful beaches you’ll find anywhere. Whether walking and exploring the rugged Dartmoor landscape with its great granite tors and Dartmoor Ponies, climbing, letterboxing, horse riding, golfing, or just having a very relaxing break, Dartmoor has it all.
    Exeter is the regional capital for culture, leisure and shopping. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and just a few miles from the sea, it brims with colourful character and offers a delightful mix of attractions, restaurants and shops in a setting of architectural splendour. Enjoy heritage, arts, festivals and award-winning locally produced food and drink, or venture beyond the city and explore the Jurassic Coast of East Devon and the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor.
