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.

    This beautifully converted barn was once the stable block to The Swan Coaching Inn back in 1720. Swan Barn now provides luxurious and well-thought out accommodation for families or couples alike. The property boasts beautiful vaulted bedroom ceilings, a relaxing Jacuzzi bath for two and a wood burner, which is perfect for curling up in front of in the evening after a brisk stroll along the canal. The enclosed rear garden provides a secure haven in the summertime for families and friends to enjoy an al fresco barbecue.
    Although hard to believe, the village of Appledore was once a coastal town and port with river access inland. The last ship to be built here was in 1446. By the 16th century, Appledore was an inland town, with river access to Rye. Here, the smugglers had a field day stashing their contraband in the cellars and tunnels. The Military Canal was built in the early 1800s to protect against Napoleonic invasion and hinder the smugglers on the Romney Marshes. Take a stroll along its banks, and delve into the history of this area.
    The medieval market town of Rye, with its cobbled streets, makes for a great day out, as does Tenterden, which is known as “The Jewel of the Weald” where you can indulge in afternoon tea.
