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: 30421


    Very close to the town centre but set in a quiet residential street with off street parking, Sea Breeze is a light and airy first floor holiday apartment, which offers a great base whether you want to explore locally or venture a little further afield. Cromer itself has all the facilities that a good town should have along with lots of things for tourists to do and explore. The traditional promenade leads to a wide, sandy beach with a pier that still offers seasonal shows. Add in a wide range of artisan and traditional seaside shops, plenty of places to eat, entertainment arcades and Amazonia Zoo and you’ll see why Cromer is such a popular destination. There are great public transport links, with a rail route to The Broads, where you can hire a launch or join a boat tour and Norwich, with its Medieval streets, Norman Castle and numerous museums. For a change of scene, you can also take the coast hopper bus which offers great views from the top deck. Just along the coast, and also accessible by train and bus, lies the bustling market town of Sheringham with it’s pretty shingle beach and the opportunity to watch the sun rise and set over the sea, which is unique for Norfolk. An old steam railway runs coastally to the picturesque town of Wells-next-to-Sea, with it’s picturesque quay and narrow gauge railway. Wells is well worth a visit a and you can easily spend a day there, but the journey by steam is almost a destination in itself. Famous for its vast collection of rhododendrons and azaleas, Sheringham Park has over 1,000 acres of coastal and woodland walks and offers an array of wildlife. Cley Marshes is close by too and you will quickly see why Norfolk is often described as England’s capital of bird watching. There are numerous National Trust Properties and Stately Homes in the area, Blickling Hall being the closest. It is said that nobody ever forgets their first sight of the Blickling Estate with its red-brick mansion and ancient yew hedges so it’s well worth a visit, and, with gentle or bracing walks to choose from, along with great cycling routes, fishing and golf close by, you can see why Cromer is a year round destination and why, with Sea Breeze, you have picked a great spot for a holiday. Beach 150 yards. Shop 350 yards, pub 200 yards and restaurant 100 yards.
