What’s best about England holiday cottages?

Location, location, location – it’s the most important consideration for any holiday. England holiday cottages are all across the UK, with many amazing options located out in the countryside, next to the coast, or slap-bang in the middle of the city. The UK boasts some incredible and natural landscapes, for instance the magnificent peaks and bodies of water that define the Lake District, or the wild open spaces of the Yorkshire moors.

In Victorian times holidaymakers would head out in droves to seaside towns like Whitby, Blackpool or Weymouth. These quintessentially British locations are still well worth visiting, offering all the fun of the fair combined with beautiful beaches and rugged coastal paths. The British coastline is an ideal spot for a cottage holiday, and many of the properties on offer have histories dating back to the Industrial Revolution and even beyond – look out for former miner’s properties and even converted mills that are bursting with character.

No cottage holiday is ever the same. Forget cookie-cutter accommodation and choose a home away from home that’s unique and full of character, whether you’re looking for something large and spacious for a group trip, or your very own idyllic hideaway steeped in romance, history, and magic.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In England To Rent.

"We are just back from renting the Cooksbridge Chapel and couldn’t have been more pleased with the property. In Cooksbridge Chapel, we felt that we had the character of a National Trust Holiday Cottage coupled with the comforts and convenience of a modern home. Our party ranged from teenagers looking for some separate space of their own to a retired person looking for a first floor bedroom and facilities. The property more than met those needs and offered great outdoor space as well. The kitchen had everything that we needed, from a dishwasher to espresso machine. Laundry facilities were convenient and simple to use. The beds were new and very comfortable, and the bathrooms were very modern and functional. Wi-Fi was easy to access and cell phone coverage was excellent. The entire property is really comfortable and immaculate, and the enclosed garden and outdoor dining and entertaining area were an unexpected bonus. We chose the Cooksbridge Chapel after looking at a number of properties around Somerset and Devon. We were looking to be accessible to Bath, Wells and Glastonbury, all easily reachable from Mark. Due to easy access to the M5 (15 minutes), we were only two hours from Heathrow and could easily make day trips to Caerphilly Castle in Wales or to points further south and west in England. The village itself met all of our needs - We visited both the White Horse and the Pack Horse several times. The food was good at both locations, and for relaxing we liked the ambiance of the pub area at the White Horse in particular. Both are less than a quarter mile from the Old Chapel and are easily walkable. There is also a small grocer about 100 yards away that had most of what we needed at the house. In the nearby village of Wedmore, there are a number of other shops and bakeries. In terms of things off the beaten path, we really enjoyed the walk over at Brean Down. If we had discovered this earlier in the trip, we would have visited a couple of times. We also hiked up Cheddar Gorge and would have liked to have spent more time exploring that area. We also want to put a plug in for the cheese at the Westcombe Dairy just outside of Shepton Mallet. Our host, Tracy, was very accommodating and had the place prepared perfectly. This is a great property and really helped us make the most of our trip."

"We recently spent a long weekend at Colleton Hall. There were 14 in our party ranging from ages 1 to 92 and everyone had a superb time. The accommodation is both elegant and functional. It has all the sophistication of a large Georgian residence with a sweeping staircase and generous room sizes ,but it has been so tastefully renovated that in terms of modern conveniences you could be renting an up market ultra modern house. Unusually for a holiday rental property, no expense has been spared in the renovations. Everything is in good taste, from the tiles throughout the ground floor, to the fittings in the bathrooms and all three kitchens. My 25 year old nephew said having a bath in the main bathroom overlooking the grounds will be a memory that will stay with him for a long time. The rooms are complemented by the carefully chosen art, many beautiful objects and vases of fresh flowers. And then there are the grounds. All I can say is wow. The lake is magical. The young members of the party, as well as taking the canoe out, had a swim in the lake. We took the opportunity of walking through the woods that are also owned by Colleton and just loved the peace and tranquility. Finally, being greeted by the owners of Colleton, Russell and Richard, in such a warm way set the weekend off to a great start. The fact they left the fridges stocked with beers (which I am sure the youngsters in the party used) as well as top class champagne (which we ensured was not touched) shows just how far they will go to try and give their guests a first class experience. We used the chef from DineIndulge for the meal on the Saturday evening and, this too, was a success. I would definitely recommend Colleton to anyone wanting a large, beautiful and sophisticated house in a rural setting. The consensus was that it was the best standard we have ever rented."

"This is the second time we have stayed at Cooksbridge Chapel and it certainly lives up to its claim of luxury self catering holidaying. It's in such a fantastic position - a short walk in either direction to two great foody pubs. With spacious parking, this fantastic accommodation is ideal for our bi-annual get together (a group of 8 friends who go back together over 35 years). The bedrooms are very comfortable, the kitchen is spot on and the living space is superb; ideal for lounging round together with a healthy glass of wine and good conversation. The dining room is perfect to get everyone round the table - often for more wine and great food... upstairs there's a little office room which was great to get away to, to write the odd letter (or escape with a guitar so as not to bother the others...). The standard of the entire accommodation is extremely high - and clearly, other guests treat it with great respect. In addition, the owner is incredibly accommodating - making sure some of the basics are available on arrival (and being very gentle when none in 8 of us remembered to take the key with us....). I guess the ultimate test of any holiday let would be, "would you come back again." Well we already did - and I've no doubt we will do so again at some stage in the future. This one's a little gem (if truth be known, I didn't really want to tell you about it....). This is a great, family/friends friendly place to stay, with some fabulous sights nearby - we took in the Bridgwater Carnival and a couple of walks up Crooks Peak and Glastonbury Tor... very convenient to get out and really enjoy the beautiful county of Somerset."

"From the moment we stepped through the doors at Colleton Hall, we knew we were very lucky to be staying somewhere so special. It was late autumn and log fires crackled in the huge fireplaces in the large, beautifully-fitted kitchen and the spacious drawing room, making the first impression one of warmth and welcome. The owners, who, surprisingly are not interior designers, have lovingly restored this gem of a small, 'stately home' with incredible flair and attention to authentic detail, whilst including the modern time-saving luxuries we all don't want to live without when on holiday. Each of the six tastefully-decorated bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom with high-end fittings and a hot water system that ensures no one goes without a decent shower! Outside, there is plenty of parking in the gravel driveway. Beyond the house, a terrace gives way to the gardens which reach down to a lake and out to woods and fields - ideal settings for barbecues, walks and picnics. This is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday - or long weekend - away from the fast pace of city life, but close enough to a good pub, restaurant and amenities - if you can bear to drag yourselves away from the beauty and comfort of the Hall. We loved it so much, we've already booked to go back with our family this Summer."

"This gorgeous farmhouse was the perfect hideaway for a weekend spent celebrating a birthday with family. We especially loved the welcoming kitchen with everything thought of right down to the plastic bowls for the little ones and the baby cham glasses for adults – perfect for our celebratory champagne! Sarah, the caretaker had left a lovely selection of jams along with local welsh cakes and fruit cakes – simply scrummy with a cuppa tea! If you can drag yourself away from the cosiness of the open log fire and comfy couches, or if you’re just a little desperate for some phone signal, then head to nearby Lake Vyrnwy which was very pretty. I would also recommend The Eagles Inn pub, a little further away but right next to Lake Bala, for a dog-friendly pub with the most welcoming and hospitable staff. Try the delicious locally bred homemade steak and ale pie but be aware – huge portions!"
