There’s a lot to be said for the Great British Staycation; more holidaymakers than ever are choosing to stay within the UK for their getaways and discover all the beautiful sights, attractions and activities that lie on their doorsteps. England is a country filled with splendid scenery, vibrant cities, abundant landmarks, numerous animal and plant species, and so much more, and you could explore it all by staying in one of our cottages with pools. Indeed, the cottage holiday could be considered one of the most British pastimes of all. Where you stay is up to you, but allow us to provide the smallest glimpse at our collection of cottages, located the length and breadth of England’s shores.
Head into the north of England to Lancashire, where you’ll discover the architectural beauty of historic Lancaster and the gaudy fun of Blackpool, one of the country’s most beloved seaside resorts. The ideal destination for history buffs, scholars and ramblers, Lancashire is something of a hidden gem, with spectacular countryside scenes, characterful seaside towns, and remote and isolated landscapes to be explored.
At the opposite end of the country, meanwhile, is Surrey, which lies in the south-east. Surrey is peppered with historic towns and cities, and attractions that include Hampton Court Palace, the Brooklands Motor Museum, and the picturesque summit of Box Hill.
In the centre of England are Staffordshire and Derbyshire, adjoining counties resplendent with rolling hills, roaring rivers and vast, green woodlands that stretch on for miles. The National Forest, which stretches across Central England, has numerous attractions located in Derbyshire and Staffordshire, including Grade I-listed house Calke Abbey, Croxall Lakes, the National Forest Adventure Farm, and the National Memorial Arboretum.
Staffordshire also boasts two of England’s largest and best-loved theme parks, Drayton Manor and Alton Towers. In addition, Derbyshire is home to the Peak District, a glorious national park that is ideal for hikers, dog walkers and birdwatchers.
If you’re going to enjoy a cottage break in England, you may as well do so with a little luxury; our holiday cottages with pools are among the most comfortable, and indulgent, to be found anywhere in the country. Hand-selected for our range, these cottages boast a mixture of indoor and outdoor, private and shared pools. One thing is for certain, though - you’ll look forward to heading home each evening, and may even get up a little earlier to make full use of the pool.
