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.

Treworgie Barton offers the ideal break and the cottages are excellently positioned for making the most of both Devon and Cornwall. With a delightful combination of stone, slate, exposed beams and timber trusses, the cottages exude warmth and their own individual charm, and each one has something to surprise you. All the cottages come fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your self-catering holiday. Most cottages have recessed deck lighting, providing a spectacular atmosphere at night.

    From the tip of the St Anthony’s headland, there is direct access to the South West Coastal Path, and the views across to Falmouth and St Mawes are breathtaking. The National Trust purchased the headland during the 1950s and converted many of the former military buildings.

Tiffy’s (so named as it was originally the artificer’s workshop, ref NT011069) and The Major’s Quarter (ref NT011064) are both all on one level and offer comfortable accommodation.

    The area is rich in history and attractions. In summer, the ferry can be taken across to the sailing town of St Mawes with its superb selection of restaurants, cafés and local art galleries and shops. The walk to the castle on the point is well worth the effort to watch the ships and boats coming and going from Falmouth across the water. Kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and sailing can all be booked in the town.

    Molunan is a small beach close to the property. There is also a bird hide nearby to enable viewing of abundant sea birds; alternatively just relax on the beach or take the opportunity to go crabbing amongst the rock pools.
