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: CC244090
    The Anchorage is situated in Burniston, a small village just north of Scarborough. The bungalow was rebuilt after the second world war after the Germans dropped their last remaining bombs on their way home, hitting the row of houses one of which was The Anchorage. The village has everything you would need with a shop, post office and a couple of good pubs. This area was mainly inhabited by seamen therefore most of the names of the properties are named after the fishing industry. There is a small secluded cove at Burniston and for long sandy beach walks you can’t beat Scarborough where you will find two bays. The north bay is much quieter than the south bay where you find the traditional seaside treats such as donkeys on the beach, sandcastles and amusements. The long flat promenade gives you over three miles of easy walking with views out to sea and inland to the castle perched on the hilltop. North of the property lies the delightful seaside town of Whitby surrounded by the rugged North Yorkshire Moors. Catch the steam train from Whitby and travel over the moors filled with heather down through Heartbeat Country to Grosmont and then onto Pickering. For those walkers amongst you the coastline running past Burniston forms part of the Cleveland Way so there’s some excellent walking right on your doorstep. The dramatic rugged coastline and tiny coves make it a memorable walk. Further down the coast there’s the seaside resorts of Flamborough Head, Filey and Bridlington, all great family beaches. Visit the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton where you can see puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat. It’s just a few minutes drive down into the centre of Scarborough where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and theatres. The Stephen Joseph Theatre is home to most of the world premieres of Alan Aykbourn’s plays. The bungalow is in a perfect base to visit all of the east coast, the moors and the Yorkshire Wolds.
