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.

    The Old Fire Station is a complex of three fantastic, bespoke properties located in Canterbury. The Fireman’s Cottage (ref UKC739) and Art House (ref UKC741) are terraced, whilst Cedar House (ref UKC740) is detached. They can all be booked separately or together for a special occasion or gathering. Decorated and furnished to a good standard, these properties all have a unique style and charm. The Old Fire Station was once used as the main fire station for Canterbury in the Victorian era with horse drawn fire engines. Ideally located on the outskirts of the city centre, they are just a short stroll from all that the famous city of Canterbury has to offer. The skyline is dominated by the stunning cathedral, which is the oldest in England. But the cathedral is only part of the story since the ancient ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church form Canterbury’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, making the city full of history, heritage and culture. Walk along the cobbled streets, perhaps take a river tour, or walk along the stunning city walls. Canterbury is full of unique and desirable shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy all year round; this makes Canterbury one of the most popular places to visit whilst in Kent. A short drive will take you to the seaside town of Whitstable, known for its oyster festival, seafood restaurants and vast coastline. For a day trip to London, a high speed service runs frequently from Canterbury West, and after a 50-minute train journey, you can enjoy the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and much more. Beach 7 miles. Shop and restaurant 500 yards, pub 100 yards.
    These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 14 guests.
