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 Barn Reborn

    Ref: NRP


    In the grounds of Grade II listed Charingworth Court can be found this delightful, spacious, timber framed barn, restored to make a perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The centre of historic Winchcombe is just a short stroll away with its restaurants, pubs and shops. The hills around are rich in well-signed footpaths, including the Cotswold Way at the bottom of the drive. The towns of Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh are all worth exploring, while Regency Cheltenham is just 8 miles away.
    The Barn itself is a really special conversion. Part of it dates from about 1650 and is mentioned by the renowned Nikolaus Pevsner in his Gloucestershire guide. Much of the original structure was gutted by fire in the 1960s, when a car stored inside caught fire. The rest was patched up then, but not much used. The main house and barn came into new ownership in the 1990s. After finishing restoring the main house and creating new gardens, the owners turned to the barn as the final element of their restoration work. Only part of the shell remained, including some original red bricks and some striking oak beams. Fortunately the owners had an old photograph of the barn before the fire. This showed how much bigger the barn had been prior to the fire. After seeing the old foundations, the planners agreed to proposals to rebuild the lost part. So, in 2010 work started on rebuilding, and a timber framed section was added to the existing part using traditional techniques and materials, and also meeting the requirements of modern building regulations. The original timber frame was repaired and restored, and the poor quality 1960s materials were replaced where necessary. New sections of timber frame were then lifted in by crane and put together like a giant three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle.
    Inside, contemporary furnishings blend elegantly with traditional features and modern fabrics. While the living room is part of the new structure, the wood frame on display gives the room a period feel. The double height kitchen/dining area has a warm mellow feel, with the original timber framed brick wall making a striking feature. The kitchen units match the rosy brick colour. Glazed on each side where the original barn doors would have opened, the hallway opens to the roof 8 metres above, where a beautiful Italian glass chandelier hangs. The wood-burning stove and underfloor heating keep the barn warm and comfortable throughout the year. The upstairs landing displays original 1600s oak beams, while the oak floors and exposed oak timber frame all add to the period charm. The en-suite bedroom has open oak framework filled with glass, and 6ft oak bed in keeping with the traditional oak framing. Shops, pub and restaurants 400 yards.

    Double aspect entrance hall. Large living room with wooden floor, beams and French doors to small garden. Kitchen/dining room with wood-burning stove and stone tiled floor. Wet room with toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 6ft bed and en-suite bathroom with toilet.

    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.
