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.

    Ref: UKC201

    Bellever Lodge is perfectly located, overlooking the beautiful countryside of Mid Devon. This detached bungalow is set in the grounds of the owners’ home and is decorated and furnished to a good standard. Nestled in a peaceful rural area, with far-reaching, stunning countryside views, it is ideal for a couple looking to enjoy a cottage holiday in Devon. The living room has bi-folding doors, opening onto the decking area, with table and chairs which is a perfect place to enjoy the views on a summer’s day, perhaps with a glass of wine. Even in peak summertime, this part of Mid Devon is sleepy and quiet, apart from the sounds of various birds and there is nothing like a gentle stroll along the lanes, or a trip to Bickleigh Mill, where you can spend the day dining al fresco by the River Exe, shopping or taking a train ride.

    From pristine golden stretches to its relentlessly pounding surf, Devon’s coastlines are numerous as they are unique, offering a range of activities for all types of holidaymakers. Take a lazy day under the sun with a good book in hand or erecting great sandcastles. Alternatively, prepare yourselves for a thrilling adventure on a surfboard! For certain, a day at the seaside is a must, whatever the hobby.

    It’s always fascinating to watch the change in scenery as you move away from the coast. Walking along Dartmoor’s stark, misty moorland, it’s plain to see where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle derived much inspiration from when writing his celebrated novel the Hound of the Baskervilles. Visit one of the many National Trust houses in the area surrounding your Devon cottage. Tiverton is just 2½ miles away, where there is a pretty canal with its colourful barges and you can even hire one for the day. Explore the historic city of Exeter with its impressive cathedral, shopping complex and various galleries, bars and restaurants. A stay at this well-appointed cottage will certainly be a Devon holiday to remember. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
