Southern England

Southern England is regularly voted one of the most desirable places to live in the UK, so it is no surprise that it is also a hugely popular place for long weekends and summer staycations. Just a short train journey from the Greater London area you will find thick forests, ancient castles, stunning beaches, and endless countryside. And you can enjoy all of this in style at a cottage with a private pool.

In order to truly appreciate the diversity of the south of England, one visit will not be enough. For mini-breaks from London, Kent and Sussex are accessible and full of fun activities. Brighton has a well-earned reputation as a creative hub, and cottages with pools around the Sussex coast will help anyone channel that bohemian lifestyle, even if it’s just for a few days. Margate is arguably Kent’s answer to Brighton, while seaside towns such as Whitstable and Folkestone are ideal for anyone who craves a refreshing walk along the beach.

Holiday cottages with pools near Berkshire will transport you into country living in an instant. The North Wessex Downs and The Chilterns are treasure troves of ancient woodland, heathery hills, and hidden glades – a world away from the hustle and bustle of London. Likewise, Surrey’s hills, estate gardens and riverside towns are surprisingly peaceful, and allow you to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life – like a fresh cup of tea in your cottage garden, surrounded by flowers and birdsong.

Adventurous types will love our cottages with swimming pools on the action-packed Isle of Wight, where you can surf, hike, scuba-dive, and sail to your heart’s content.

Or perhaps your idea of heaven involves a few days in a quaint Wiltshire village, or strolling across the Hampshire landscape.

Whatever you dream of during the Monday morning commute, it is closer than you think. And there is no better way to enjoy your next rural retreat than in your own private cottage.
