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.

    Set in a very quiet and rural location, midway between Totnes and Dartmouth, nestling in a secluded valley with beautiful views over green and rolling hills. Lower Tideford Farm is a peaceful little group of 5 holiday cottages on a small South Devon farm (refs W44003, W44004, W44005, W44006 and W44007). Once a working dairy farm with contented cows grazing on 170 acres of lush Devon pasture land. The original, beautiful stone barns set around a central courtyard have now been converted into lovely holiday cottages set down a long private drive and surrounded by fields. The Dartmouth cottage was the original milking parlour, and the kitchen was used for cooling and storing milk. The upper storey of The Salcombe cottage was a threshing barn, some of the machinery, in particular the old cogs and wheels, are still there as original features, and these can be seen in the kitchen. They were powered from outside by a traction engine in days gone by. This is a super location for a holiday, whether you may fancy just relaxing and reading a book or taking in the breathtaking views across the valley or perhaps trying your hand at some of the ball games on offer. With shared grounds of 30 acres, sitting-out areas and garden furniture, a fenced stream and a pond lower down in the valley, Lower Tideford Farm is ideal for families who are looking for a perfect place in which to relax and unwind. Historic Dartmouth is 4 miles away with the spectacular River Dart, the historic towns of Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, all on your doorstep. Shop 5 miles, pub ½ mile and restaurant 2 miles.
