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.

It has been extravagantly furnished and decorated to a particularly high standard and offers every home from home comfort, ideal for families and couples that are looking to explore this stunning coast line.  The delightful promenade boasts stunning views of Huntcliff and is home to its very own water powered cliff lift, which dates back to 1884. Also on the promenade is Saltburn’s famous pier, the most northerly surviving and recently extended pier in Britain, which has also been recently known as the main target of the knitting craze known as ’Yarn Bombing’. Both of which are perfect for a leisurely stroll on a fine evening, or sunny afternoon. There are lots of activities in Saltburn including surfing, fishing, golf and swimming. You can also enjoy horse riding by taking a trek across the beach. Recently opened is Saltburn’s Art Bank, a custom built gallery housing the latest works of local artists, sculptors and craftsmen, or if you prefer the Theatre, there is plenty to enjoy at Saltburn’s community theatre which hosts many events from screen plays to comedy nights. Both are within walking distance and less than 250 yards. The historic town of Whitby is definitely worth a day out; you can sample its famous fish and chips or visit the stunning Abbey! It can be accessed both by car, and from the pretty cobbled streets in the old town via the famous 199 steps. You could also walk from Whitby along the 3 miles of golden sands up the coast to the pretty resort of Sandsend. The picture postcard villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are also worthy of a days outing. You could also enjoy the experience of the North Yorkshire Moors steam train, which meanders through the moors villages of Grosmont, Goathland (aka Aidensfield in the TV series Heartbeat) and Levisham en route from Whitby to the lively market town of Pickering.
