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: UKC747

    Tucked away in a quiet location, yet conveniently close to the centre of Penzance, Betty’s Retreat is a quirky, split-level, traditionally furnished, first-floor apartment that’s ideal for couples, small families or friends looking to explore western Cornwall. The property is just a hop, skip and a jump from the train station, so it’s ideal for holidaymakers wanting to leave the car behind – you can arrive by train, and Penzance has fantastic public transport for getting out and exploring the region. Access couldn’t be easier to points of interest in the area, so pay a visit to Sennen Cove, Land’s End, St Just and the magical coastal walks of the Penwith Peninsula. Alternatively, if you’d rather save your feet, you can take a scenic train ride to the picturesque harbour town of St Ives, passing numerous beautiful beaches en-route. There are also a number of sub-tropical gardens and National Trust properties nearby. Sure enough, Penzance’s title of ‘gateway to West Cornwall’ is well earned.

    The town itself offers a broad range of local amenities, including art galleries, a museum, marina, harbour, an array of independent shops and many a fine restaurant. Take a stroll along the promenade past the open-air Lido and café to the nearby fishing harbour of Newlyn, which is famous for its Newlyn Art School and Gallery. Further along the coast is the quaint fishing village of Mousehole, with its charming old-world ambience, winding streets, cobbled alleyways and sandy harbour beach.

    Owing to the South West Coastal Paths that follows the coastline, the area is popular with walkers. To the east of Penzance lies Marazion – a birdwatcher’s paradise thanks to the nature reserve of Marazion Marshes. There’s also St Michael’s Mount to visit – a rocky outcrop that rises out of the sea crowned with a medieval castle. St Michael’s Mount can be reached on foot via a causeway at low tide, or by a small boat at high tide.

    For more adventurous holidaymakers, why not take a boat trip to the stunning isles of Scilly? If you’re not so keen on travelling by boat, you can also get there by air from Land’s End Airport. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant ¼ mile, pub 800 yards.

    Ref: 23778


    Far from the madding crowd, this delightfully cosy holiday cottage is one of only a handful of buildings in the beautiful and unique moorland landscape of Grisedale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Built in 1666 with low beams and latch doors, it has wonderful open views from the south-facing garden. Grisedale (also spelt Grisdale on some maps) is located close to the train station of Garsdale, just off the A684 between Hawes, 6 miles, and Sebergh, 10 miles. The nearest pub, serving good food and a selection of real ales, is about 3 miles away. Grisedale was known as the ’The Dale that Died’ from the book and TV documentary of the same name, filmed in the 1970s when the last remaining inhabitant left the valley. Since then, many of the buildings, including Moor Rigg Cottage, have been renovated and life has returned to the valley. The area is a real paradise for bird watchers, with many species of owl and other birds of prey being found in Grisedale, along with ground nesting birds (skylark, curlew, oystercatcher, lapwing and red grouse). Red squirrels, hares, deer and wild ponies also frequent the dale. There are many footpaths across Grisedale and large areas of open access land. The cottage is located close to the Yorkshire Dales famous 3 Peaks walk, with 2 of the 3 peaks visible from the garden. It is also near the 2014 Tour de France route, allowing visitors to experience the spectacular scenery and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends. The cottage is also within easy reach of the Pennine Way, Coast to Coast walk and the Lake District (45 minutes to Kendal). Shops and restaurant 8 miles, pub 3 miles.
