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.

  • Well Cottage

    Corton, nr. Lowestoft

    Grade
    2
    1
    1
    1
    Ref: 25649

    Well Cottage is a single-storey cottage situated in the owner’s garden, with views to the resident poultry, and just 150 yards from the cliff tops which lead down to Corton beach. The holiday cottage is ideally situated for exploring the Suffolk Heritage coastline, or enjoying the delights of Oulton Broad. Corton is just a couple miles north of Lowestoft, on the Suffolk coast. Tucked between Pleasurewood Hills theme park, Hopton and the A12, the village hugs the rapidly disappearing cliff top. The partly-ruined St Bartholomew’s Church dominates Corton, and the imposing tower can be seen from the beach and the A12. The nave is now a community hall while the 15th-century tower stands hollow and ghostly. Locals claim that the village has much history, and there is no doubt that the Second World War kept the village busy. Two men died trying to disarm a German mine in 1942; while in 1940, an Italian Fiat fighter, flown by Sergente Antonio Lazzari, was shot down near the railway station. Holidaymakers swell the village population by more than 600 each week in the summer and can be seen everywhere from the church craft fair to the car boot sale. Also the old railway has become a favourite haunt for ornithologists with sightings of the arctic warbler, long-eared owl and rough-legged buzzard and there are several bird reserves and sanctuaries in Suffolk. St Bartholomew’s church and railway track bed both give Corton a special character, as does the old gamekeeper’s cottage on the corner of Corton Long Lane. In Lowestoft you can visit the Maritime Museum, or spend a leisurely day at Somerleyton Hall and Gardens just 4 miles away. The East Anglia Transport Museum, 5 miles, is a firm favourite with many visitors. While for something more frenetic, why not take in the weekly powerboat racing at Oulton Broad (May to Sept)? Additionally there are excellent local walking and cycling routes. Shop and pub 250 yards.

    All on ground floor: Living room with French doors, sofa bed (for alternative sleeping) and dining area with wooden floors. Kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

    Electric heaters, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Blu-ray. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washing machine. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Small courtyard and patio area. Barbecue. Parking (1 car). No smoking.
