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.

    For a truly unique and memorable self catering holiday experience, The Old Church is a property that is hard to beat. On the site of a medieval chapel, (an incumbant is recorded as early as 1355), the present church was designed by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard, and is of sufficient architectural merit that it was included in the guides of the architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner. Situated in the quiet hamlet of Hopton Cangeford, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this professionally converted nave of a 1766 Grade II* listed church still has many of the original features such as squire’s pews, oak dado panelling, font and pulpit. The mix of 21st century décor and facilities such as flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom, a fully fitted kitchen with hand-painted tiles and underfloor heating blends effortlessly with the original stain glass windows and architecture. The double bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom, tiled extensively with travertine and granite, providing both a shower enclosure and a Jacuzzi spa bath. If you love unusual properties then The Old Church ticks all of the boxes. You can even dine by candlelight in the vestry! You will never stay anywhere like this again and it’s a true gem hidden away in the Shropshire countryside. A once in a lifetime experience! The quiet country lanes surrounding The Old Church are ideal for walking and cycling. Just 4 miles from Ludlow, surrounded by the unspoilt hills of the Welsh Marches, this historic market town offers a medieval castle, fine restaurants and, in September, the famous Ludlow Food Festival.
