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.

    Ref: UK2076
    Overlooking the quaint and sleepy village of Wold Newton, with stunning countryside and scenery Parker Suite is in a beautiful peaceful setting yet just a short stroll down to the village and all its amenities. Situated on the owner’s 200-acre working farm you are surrounded by gentle rolling hills and valleys, perfect for those long countryside walks. Spot the wildlife from boxing hares to barn owls swooping down for prey. Bempton Cliffs is great for birdwatchers with thousands of puffins, guillemots and kittiwakes frequenting the area as well as the odd seal lazing on the rocks.
    For those hardened walkers amongst you there’s the Wolds Way, a 79 mile walk from Hessle to Filey where at this point you could go even further joining the Cleveland Way. The Wolds is famous for being the inspiration to David Hockney’s paintings, an area he knew well when a boy. Yorkshire is renowned for its beautiful stately homes including Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall and of course the stunning Castle Howard, one of Britain’s finest stately homes just north of York. The resorts of Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough are just a short drive away. Filey has a large sweeping beach where you can walk all the way along to Reighton Gap; stop and watch the horses galloping in the sea. The busier resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington are also worth a visit with their bustling working harbours and exciting attractions including a Sea Life Centre and open top bus tours. Visit the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, home to most of Alan Ayckbourn’s world premieres or have a great evening out at the Bridlington Spa with its international shows. The vibrant city of York is just a short drive away with its huge 13th century Gothic cathedral in the centre and then a walled city surrounding the cobbled streets and alleyways. There’s an abundance of museums and galleries from the Railway Museum to the Jorvik Viking centre. There are river boats and open top buses that give you a very informative tour of the city. Beach 7 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub 400 yards, restaurant 5½ miles.
    Parker Suite can be booked together with The Granary (UK2074) and The Hayloft (UK2075) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

The Rother Valley also offers a plethora of walking and cycling opportunities, bring your own bikes and helmets, or hire locally. Within walking distance is the Kent and East Sussex Vintage Steam Railway which chugs its way through 10½ miles of beautiful countryside, enabling you to visit Tenterden, also known as ‘The Jewel of the Weald’, and once another thriving Cinque Port town but now 10 miles from the sea!

Enjoy a lazy summer afternoon soaking up the tranquillity of the River Rother and hire a rowing boat, glide effortlessly past the reed beds and spot a kingfisher or heron. The romantic recreation of a medieval manor house at Great Dixter, and its beautiful gardens, are worth a visit. No holiday would be complete without a trip to the vast expanse of golden sand dunes at Camber, glorious in the sunshine, and invigorating when the sea breezes blow. You could even try your hand at kite surfing! The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 people (3 couples). Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
