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.

    Ref: 30262


    Enjoying its own private deck directly on the riverside, this terraced house is the perfect holiday getaway for those seeking great views and relaxing times. Keen fishermen with a rod licence can literally step down from the deck on to the boardwalk and fish in the river, which contains many species of fish including brown trout and sea trout. A bridle path runs along the fence, under the willow trees opposite the front door, which offers beautiful, unspoilt walks for miles along the river’s edge. The area is famous for its wildlife and, depending on the time of year, you will see an abundance of butterflies, dragonflies, birds and animals. It’s also known for its “big skies” and with very little light pollution, you will be able to sit on your deck and star gaze. If you can tear yourself away, there are lots of places to explore nearby with the romantic moated manor house, Oxborough Hall and Gooderston Water Gardens, a unique attraction for all garden lovers, naturalists, artists and photographers close by. Thetford Forest offers walks, cycling and bike hire, and often hosts open air concerts in the summer months. Lakenheath airbase offers a viewing platform for keen plane spotters, and RSPB Lakenheath Fen offers great bird watching opportunities. Of course, the famous Norfolk coast is also within reach, and for a glorious beach and all the fun of the fair, you can head to Hunstanton and enjoy fish and chips as you look at the seashore, which really does seem to go on forever. Equally accessible for days out are the Hanseatic town of Kings Lynn, which was one of England’s most important ports from as early as the 12th century and offers an amazing array of historic buildings and attractions in its old quarter, Ely with its stunning cathedral and Bury St Edmunds, an important market town with a fascinating history and wonderful Christmas market. For a royal day out, the Sandringham Estate shouldn’t be missed. Sandringham is the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty The Queen, and has been the private home for four generations of British monarchs since 1862. The estate is open to visitors when the royals are not in residence. Shop ½ mile, pub 1 mile.
