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.

    Walk through the doors of Witchnest, where you will be met by this lovingly furnished 18th-century property, which boasts original open beams and a cosy open fire. Every thought has gone into the beautiful décor, with unique antique furniture, co-coordinating soft furnishings and luxurious drapes. The bespoke kitchen offers all the contemporary facilities needed, with the center piece being a large range to cook upon. Each bedroom has been designed with draped beds and comfort in mind, and there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy a sound night’s sleep in the comfortable beds.
    Full of charm and character, the cottage is situated on the old ’Clatterway’, which leads into Bonsall, a quiet village in the hills between Matlock and Wirksworth. With the most stunning picturesque surroundings, two great pubs and a cosy coffee shop and deli, this pretty village is one you’ll love to relax and spend time in.
    Bonsall is a village which is nestled in the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, and has a long history of lead mining, which is thought to go back to Roman times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bonsall’s residents have been involved in the textile industry, pre and post Arkwright. In the early modern times it was on an important salters’ route, and was a staging post on the road between Derby and Manchester. It is just a short drive away from the famous Arkwright Mills at Cromford, with Matlock and Bakewell also close by. The picturesque village of Crich with its fantastic Tramway Village and Chatsworth House and Carsington Reservoir, with its sailing centre, watersports and cycle route are all just a short drive away.

Ashbourne is great for guests who love county town shops. Wirksworth’s Heritage Centre and trail is definitely worth a visit and Matlock Bath’s cable cars are breathtaking.
