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: UKC216

    Approached down a quiet country lane, Talehay is a Grade II listed Cornish farmhouse which dates back some 300 years. The farmhouse and the detached stone cottages retain much of their original character and beauty, whilst providing tastefully furnished accommodation around a central courtyard. During the warm summer months, the lawned areas and spacious communal gardens that encompass the properties are ideal for picnics and barbecues. All cottages are supplied with their own seating area, and to the rear of the main house is a further 3½ acres of fully enclosed meadowland, so youngsters and their 4-legged friends can get a good run around.

    Set amidst delightfully unspoilt countryside, Talehay Cottages are situated a mile from the village of Pelynt and just 3 miles from the sea. Owing to its serene location, the cottages are ideal for guests wanting some peace and quiet on their holiday. It also makes a convenient base for exploring the many attractions Cornwall provides; its beaches, stately homes, famous gardens, coastal and inland walks, not to mention the world-renowned Eden Project.

    Characterised by busy fishing harbours, dramatic headlands and secluded sandy coves, Cornwall’s coastlines feature some of the most evocative, breath-taking scenery in Britain. For those wanting to escape the crowds, there are hidden gems scattered along Cornwall’s south-east coast, and if you know where to look, you can find empty golden beaches even in the height of the tourist season. Head to Lantivet or Lansallos, and Lantic Bay is regarded as one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets.

    There’s more dynamic terrain to be found further inland; Bodmin Moor possesses a stark ruggedness of its own, which has long drawn holiday goers up into the hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Cheesewring is a striking granite tor, Roughtor features a Neolithic tor enclosure, and Brown Willy (the highest point in Cornwall) enjoys vast unbroken views over moor and mire. Bodmin Moor is also famous for its Jamaica Inn, which was immortalised by Dauphne Du Maurier, and also used as the film location of the much-loved Poldark drama.

    From fine dining to quirky beach cafés, Cornwall is known as a prime foodie destination, with Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver, Nathan Outlaw and Paul Ainsworth among the many top chefs championing the county’s culinary field. Other attractions in the area include Cornwall’s finest country house Lanhydrock, the fine fortress built by Henry VIII Pendennis, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the Tate Gallery in St Ives, and for a completely unique theatre experience, head to Minack Theatre; an open-air theatre that sits atop the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There’s also sailing, fishing, diving, golf and horse riding to be found locally, and with many country and coastal paths criss-crossing the region, Cornwall is a paradise for walkers and cyclists. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Step to entrance. Ground floor: Living room with beams. Dining room with beams. Kitchen. First floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.
