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: 30932


    These terraced holiday apartments are situated at the end of a row of seafarer’s cottages which were originally built so that the captains of the sailing trawlers could keep an eye on their boats in the harbour below. The views from the front of the houses are spectacular, taking in the town, the picturesque harbour filled with a variety of commercial fishing boats and the marina with its yachts, cruisers and lifeboats. Harbour Reach is just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, the beaches and the harbour side from where numerous fishing and pleasure boat trips leave. Brixham has been a charming and picturesque working fishing port for centuries with characteristic fisherman’s cottages clustered around the historic harbour where Prince William of Orange landed in 1688. The town has many attractive, winding narrow streets with colourful cottages, a wide selection of shops, art gallery, craft shops and various cafes, restaurants, pubs and churches. Brixham’s beaches are a mixture of sand, shingle and large pebbles. The popular open-air sea water swimming pool is surrounded by a shingle and rock beach, which is always popular for rock pooling. Nearby are the wonderful sandy beaches of Broadsands, Goodrington and Paignton. There are lovely coastal footpaths to Berry Head Nature Reserve with its colonies of nesting Guillemots and Kittiwakes, the Napoleonic fort and the lighthouse. The lighthouse is both the smallest and highest in Britain! You will love relaxing at Harbour Reach, watching the constant activity in the fishing harbour as the boats come in to unload their catch. You can see across the marina and out to sea and watch the ferries come and go between Torquay, Brixham and Dartmouth. A view that you will be reluctant to leave! The view extends across the town to your left and can walk down to the town, harbour side and beaches in 5 minutes. Harbour Reach Flat (ref 30932) is a ground floor flat which is excellently furnished and very well equipped. Harbour Reach Maisonette (ref 30931) is a comfortable and convenient property, a real ‘home from home’. The view extends across Torbay and out to sea, you can even see as far as Sidmouth on a clear day.

    The Park is a secret huddle of distinctively chic holiday properties, hidden in a tranquil valley garden just yards from a stunning beach on the north Cornwall coast. No two holiday homes are the same at this holiday park, with stylish lodges and cosy cottages which are all nestled in 27 acres of tranquil grounds. Some of these have private terraces with hot tubs, many have enclosed garden spaces. Most of the homes are dog-friendly, as is the beach, no matter what time of year you come and stay. You can swim in one of our two swimming pools, let off steam in the spa, or lounge in the café. There’s also a children’s play area, table tennis and a DVD library. The Park grounds offer sun traps, hidden pathways and fruit and herb gardens which guests are invited to sample. Next to the café is the heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room. Outside, you’ll find another heated pool in a south-facing garden setting with views across the valley, complete with a bar serving food and drinks throughout the summer.

    If you’re looking for adventure, take a stroll along north Cornwall’s breath-taking coastal paths, beaches and cliffs. For something more extreme, learn to surf at a surf school on Mawgan Porth Beach, or maybe try kite surfing at Watergate Bay, just two miles down the coast. If your food supplies are running low, pick up some holiday essentials at the convenience store in Mawgan Porth Village, or dine at Jamie Oliver’s ’Fifteen’ restaurant at Watergate Bay, or Rick Stein’s Seafood Café at Padstow.

    Cornwall has plenty of family attractions, and is also well-known for arts, culture, history, heritage, gardens, food, drink, film, TV and literature. Beaches in the local area, Watergate Bay, and the surf beaches of Newquay, lie within five miles along the coast road southwards, and the seven bays and beaches of St Merryn and Padstow are 10 miles to the north. Further afield, the beaches of Marazion, St Ives, Sennen, Kynance Cove, Falmouth, Perranporth and Porthcurno are among the top ten in the county (according to the Cornwall Guide). Even if the weather is poor, do what the locals do - wrap up warm, take a brisk walk in the wind, watch the waves crash on the rocks and let the Cornish sea air blow the cobwebs away!

    Other attractions including the educational Eden Project and Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm, are not far away. Cornwall is steeped in myths, legends and folklore, from ‘piskies’ and ’faeries’ to kings and castles. Cornwall’s 50-plus gardens all enjoy the warmth of the Gulf Stream, which means that many are home to rare tropical plants, flowers and trees. There are gardens of different scales in Cornwall, from the small and unusual to the large and more famous. Beach 300 yards. Shop and pub 250 yards, restaurant on-site.

    All on ground floor: Living/dining room with patio doors/kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double with en-suite shower room and toilet, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

    Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot and high chair on request. Two Freeview TVs (one 26"). DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Shared laundry room.
