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.

    National Trust Property

    A most beautiful National Trust estate, set on the banks of the River Tamar, Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. This magnificent Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. In the gardens and grounds of Cotehele, you can easily lose yourself exploring this most tranquil and beautiful location. Admire the stunning, formally planted terraces of gorgeous, colourful plants, or wander down to the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stewpond and dovecote, which in turn leads down to the River Tamar. Sit a while and seek tranquillity in the beautiful Upper Garden and explore the orchards planted with local varieties of apples and cherry trees.

    From early spring, bright flowers adorn the grounds and the colourful herbaceous borders are simply stunning in high season. With orchards bearing fruit in the autumn and dainty snowdrops peeking through in winter, there will be horticultural activity all year round. This very popular National Trust property appeals to people of all ages, but Cotehele will be available to guests in early mornings and after the day visitors have gone home.

    In the 19th century, local industries boomed and Cotehele Quay bustled with vessels loading and unloading cargo. Paddle steamers came upriver to see the Tamar Valley’s famous blossoming orchards, and small boats carried market-gardening produce back down the river for sale at Devonport Market. The restored sailing barge Shamrock is moored at the quay and a proper Cornish cream tea can be enjoyed in the Edgcumbe tea room. The Discovery Centre here tells the story of the Tamar Valley, offering a gateway to the wider estate and is just a short walk through the Morden Valley to the sister property Cotehele Mill. Cotehele welcome dogs and there are some great walks on the miles of paths around the estate, at the quay and in the mill grounds. Dogs are also welcome in the outside seating area of the restaurants. Assistance dogs only are welcome in the house and garden.
    The enchanting hamlet of Botherick is on the southern edge of the Cotehele Estate. It grew up in the 19th century, probably to house miners working in the nearby silver-lead mines and the men working in the limekilns and on the quays beside the river below. Tremletts 4 is the end cottage in the row, with lovely views over open countryside. On a clear day, you can see all the way down the Tamar Valley to the two bridges at Saltash. With its own private garden, Tremletts 4 makes a relaxing and secluded base for exploring the lovely Cotehele Estate and the wider valley. Beach 16 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Living room with open fire, dining area and door to garden. Galley-style kitchen. First floor: Double bedroom with 6ft zip & link bed (can be twin on request). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Situated in a peaceful location in Nordham, on the edge of North Cave, there’s ample walking and cycling from your door. The cottage is ideal for couples looking for a well earned peaceful and relaxing break away from it all: snuggle in and relax - read a book, play a game, or watch a film in the cosy sitting room with its attractive gas fire.

Both offer many different experiences: The Deep, a day at the races, York dungeons, Viking Museum or retail therapy, theatre or live music. It’s only 35 minutes from the coast for a grand day out; a walk on the beach and fish and chips! If it’s an activity holiday you are looking for why not try Kayaking, or clay pigeon shooting just outside the village, even diving! There’s a play area for children around the corner, with a stream for pooh sticks on the way. North Cave is the Gateway to East Yorkshire’s Nature Triangle and we have a variety of wildlife in our woodland which you can visit, or you can see the bird life at the wetlands where there are stunning sunsets. NGS garden Fawley House is just next door for an arranged visit and there are two garden centres in the village. A veg basket is offered during your stay in the growing season from the gardens at Fawley House. Drewton’s farm shop is really popular for food shopping and for their award winning restaurant. There’s a pub in the village and the very popular Hotham Arms serving great food, a short walk away in the next village. Other pubs serving food are in South Cave, Ellerker, Newbald and Sancton, just over 3 miles away from the property.
