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: CDDL


    Built around 1550 with a flint and brick extension added in Victorian times, Portland Cottage has been carefully renovated to ensure that it offers everything a discerning guest could need without losing any of its charm. Beautifully presented, it has been lovingly restored by an interior designer who has added lots of wonderful bespoke touches, while creating a light and airy getaway. The cottage was originally built as a private dwelling, which was actually used as the local brew house where the tenant sold home brewed ales to the passing farm workers. You can just picture them calling in to have their jugs filled with ale after a long day ploughing and harvesting the surrounding fields, which look the same today as they did over 400 years ago. The adjoining cottage was the local bakery, so the air would have been filled with the most wonderful aromas of beer brewing and bread baking. Portland Cottage was originally part of the Townshend Estate and has strong links to the agricultural revolution as it was Turnip Townshend who invented the 4 crop rotation system that is still used today. Located within the pretty hamlet of Helhoughton, the links to history are all still there, with a beautiful church dating back to the 14th century, and the surrounding meadows and woodlands which are still privately owned by the Townshend family. Locally, you will find beautiful beaches and coastal towns and villages including Wells-next-the-Sea, with its beautiful quay, Blakeney and Hunstanton, with its long stretch of sandy beach. Those looking for stately homes and National Trust properties will find the Sandringham Estate, Holkham Hall and Blickling Hall all within easy reach. With Norfolk being described as ‘the bird watching capital of England’, it is also needless to say there are wildlife watching opportunities galore to be had. Add in great cycle routes and walks and lots of local attractions and places to eat, and you will see why this is such a popular part of Norfolk to visit. Thanks to Portland Cottage and its traditional wood-burning stove, high quality beds and Egyptian cotton sheets, you will be able to relax and unwind after a busy day. Beach 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.
