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.

    VisitEngland Silver Award for Green Tourism

    In the heart of North York Moors National Park you will find Craven Garth, a family run working farm nestling in the beautiful Valley of Rosedale and surrounded by stunning scenery. This cluster of traditional cottages has been renovated from the old barns and approved by VisitEngland National Quality Assessment Scheme to welcome walkers and cyclists. Look closer and you will discover historic abbeys, castles and priories. Walking, cycling and horse riding could have been invented for the North York Moors, with breathtaking heather moorland, coastal paths, steep-sloped valleys, rolling hills and fragrant pine forests to explore all in the same day. Take to the trees on a rope swing in Dalby Forest, or hire a bike and explore a landscape of ruins, legends and endless horizons. Step back in time with Britain’s most popular heritage steam railway and enjoy stunning scenery along 18 miles of railway through the North York Moors National Park to Whitby. From Pickering’s well-preserved castle to the Gothic splendour of Rievaulx Abbey, the landscape is peppered with places of historic interest. Unearth Bronze and Iron Age settlements at Roulston Scar, experience life during World War II at Eden Camp, or visit Ryedale Folk Museum for a day of historic fun. As you and your family will quickly discover, few destinations are as historically rich, or revealing. And when you are ready to take a break, set a course for the charming market towns and a hearty pub lunch and back to Rosedale for Yorkshire food at its finest. Or simply relax in your cottage in front of a log fire. There are tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a bakery within 2 miles.
