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.

    Bay Tree is a delightful cottage with oodles of character and charm: beams and traditional features. Situated in a peaceful location in Nordham, on the edge of North Cave, there’s ample walking and cycling from your door. The cottage is ideal for couples looking for a well earned peaceful and relaxing break away from it all: snuggle in and relax - read a book, play a game, or watch a film in the cosy sitting room with its attractive gas fire. The south facing courtyard garden is perfect for lying on sunbeds, using the log BBQ or enjoying a Pimms in the evening sun.

    Situated just two miles from the M62 makes it easy to get to, and well located to explore the area. It is really close to the market towns of Beverley and Market Weighton, both very popular. The historic city of Hull, city of culture in 2017, is only 20 minutes away and York only 45 minutes away. Both offer many different experiences: The Deep, a day at the races, York dungeons, Viking Museum or retail therapy, theatre or live music. It’s only 35 minutes from the coast for a grand day out; a walk on the beach and fish and chips! If it’s an activity holiday you are looking for why not try Kayaking, or clay pigeon shooting just outside the village, even diving! There’s a play area for children around the corner, with a stream for pooh sticks on the way. North Cave is the Gateway to East Yorkshire’s Nature Triangle and we have a variety of wildlife in our woodland which you can visit, or you can see the bird life at the wetlands where there are stunning sunsets. NGS garden Fawley House is just next door for an arranged visit and there are two garden centres in the village. A veg basket is offered during your stay in the growing season from the gardens at Fawley House. Drewton’s farm shop is really popular for food shopping and for their award winning restaurant. There’s a pub in the village and the very popular Hotham Arms serving great food, a short walk away in the next village. Other pubs serving food are in South Cave, Ellerker, Newbald and Sancton, just over 3 miles away from the property.
