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.

    Built in 1695 by Bulkeley Mackworth on the site of a much older house inherited from his grandmother’s family, and set in a prominent location within 18 acres of parkland, the apartment [right in photograph] of this Queen Anne mansion has been restored with character and style. Still lived in by the family who built the house, Buntingsdale is mentioned in Doomsday, and other famous names connected with the manor include Lady Godiva of Coventry, the Cabot brothers and Peter Bulkely, who founded Concord, Mass. USA, because he was disappointed in not inheriting Buntingsdale! An ancient castle is still there in the earthworks below the Hall. An army camped in the hill above the house before the Battle of Shrewsbury. The land was fought over in the Civil Wars, when two Mackworths, father and son, were in turn Governors of Shrewsbury Castle; their portraits hang in the Hall. In the more recent Second World War, the Hall was used as a training ground and wireless listening station, and was only released from service in the 1960s, when it was excused from being the command centre for nuclear strikes in the West Midlands. With views to the Welsh hills over open countryside, the accommodation offered is of a very high standard, with comfort and all modern conveniences. An enormous games room with a full-sized snooker table, table tennis, darts and beer fridge allows for friendly competition in front of a roaring fire. Within the grounds lies a large lake and river frontage with rowing boat and inflatable kayak whilst guests have use of their own secluded courtyard area. There is private coarse fishing available (licence required), with basic equipment provided, and carp and trout with a jetty on the lake. There is also rough shooting (duck, licence required) and private snowdrop, daffodil and bluebell woods in season, with badgers and buzzards. For pets, an outdoor kennel is also available. The private drive is ¾-mile and children’s bikes are welcome. Bike hire is also available by arrangement with the owner. Walks start from the property and the owner also offers wellingtons and warm coats to borrow. Tours of the hall are available by arrangement with the owner, including Victorian icehouse and part tunnels, weather permitting. There is also a large formal Georgian dining room and drawing room with painted ceiling and fireplace for extra hire, and two large open fires in the drawing room and games room. The neighbouring community farm, 3 miles, has plenty of amenities including a restaurant, tea room, shop, organic butchery, walking trails, events and children’s activities. Home of the gingerbread, the attractive town of Market Drayton was once famed for its Damson Fairs, and many Draytonarians continue the tradition with damson feasts each autumn. Keen walkers can follow the trails of the famous Clive of India or the unusual bloodthirsty ‘Murder and Mayhem’ track, whilst a wild animal trail offers a rather more sedate option for the children! Market Drayton is the ideal base for touring Stoke and the Potteries, Ironbridge, Shrewsbury and North Wales. The Shropshire union canal winds it way close to the town, its tow paths, flights of locks and breathtaking aqueduct well worth a visit. Nearby you can find award-winning gardens, such as Hodnet, Wollerton Old Hall and Hawkstone Park, with its golf course and unique landscape of caves, woodland and follies. Horse riding and golf nearby. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

    " Spacious well-equipped cottages...with an idyllic rural setting amidst a chorus of wildlife "

    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. Walkers are spoilt for choice, from the local countryside to the splendour of the Mendips, including Cheddar Gorge. With its magnificent indoor pool, games room, tennis court, climbing frame and idyllic setting, The Sunday Times described Moorleaze as
    "a sure-fire child pleaser", and it’s just as popular with adults, an ideal break at any time of the year. The village pub is within walking distance. Shops 6 miles.
