Holiday Cottages In England To Rent

Holiday Cottages in England

An unforgettable holiday is an unforgettable experience. Don’t take the natural beauty, history and character of your native country for granted – get out there and explore it! Choosing England holiday cottages gives you the chance to do just that, with accommodation that’s bursting with character. From those cosy little hideaways that are evocative of simpler times, to spacious modern properties that boast their own heated swimming pools and hot tubs – with hundreds of holiday cottages in England there’s literally something for everyone.

You won’t be missing out on any of the home comforts, either, with beautifully decorated interiors, full-equipped kitchens and lots of little finishing touches you simply don’t get in hotels. England holiday cottages offer an authentic self-catered experience, giving you and the family the freedom to enjoy your time off in exactly the way you choose, and with many pet-friendly options available your beloved pet can even accompany you on the adventure.

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.

Leighann - verified booking

"We were a family party of 10 adults and 4 children, staying at little lanherne 5th-12th May 2018.We arrived before check in time to be nosey at the exterior, but the lovely cleaner who was there told us we could check in a little early (about an hour). On first arrival, the house is like a maze, with rooms to explore everywhere! Absolutely beautiful. There was a resident cockrel who we named Neville. We became very attached to Neville except for at 5am every day when he said his good mornings to us! There is also a lovely black dog which visits for food. He lives at the neighbouring farm.The rooms are comfy with clean linen and towels supplied. Some of the furniture has seen better days such as the children's beds in the yellow painted room; they were quite wobbly. The sofas in the lounge look tired too. There is ample space, and a huge garden for the children to play in. Bathrooms were well fitted. One bathroom had a broken tap unfortunately, and the plug in the same bathroom was broken too. There is loads of parking. The roads driving to little lanherne are narrow and steep so impossible to go above 10mph - just a heads up. The only issue I found is that the house needs a good deep clean. There are cobwebs everywhere. The house is very very old but it does feel a little grubby. Nothing a thorough dusting and cleaning wouldn't sort out. There were things like sweet wrappers and cotton buds behind dressing table in bedroom, children's toys under sofas etc which prompted us to think that the cleaning wasn't done as thoroughly as it should be between guests. The house is well stocked with cutlery, glasses, plates etc. Some areas of the house seem a little forgotten, such as the games cupboard which is full of part missing games and ripped books. There are no decent CDs or DVDs as most are either just empty cases or totally not worth watching. CD player is very old too, and there seems to be loads of them dotted about, none of which worked? I would recommend a new one.The welcome pack is very outdated; includes a fire risk assessment from 2012 which was factually incorrect in some parts. No guidance on how to use heating either in the pack; found a laminated sheet on the last day which was in with a pile of 2017 Cornwall guides in the kitchen. New guides would be nice too; we did leave a few.My recommendations would be a thorough clean, a nice updated welcome pack, new CD player plus newer CDs, a WiFi booster as it only works in the kitchen and some fuel for the wood burners. Was disappointed to have to go out and buy this!All in all, we had a fabulous time in this beautiful house. We are already planning a return for next year and hope to see some of the minor details mentioned above rectified. Nb; be sure to check out the collection of stones left by lots of visitors on the window ledge outside near the front door. Some are dated back to 2010! We even left our own :) photo attached :) thank you for a wonderful stay with so many happy memories xx"

"we enjoyed this cottage. it has enough space for our family of 5 (inc teens and young adults) and a golden retriever. the cottage was very clean and had most things we needed for a good stay. the Christmas hamper was fabulous and a nice touch. could have done with more seating in the lounge but we brought in a chair from the hall. bathrooms are modern and 3 toilets is always a bonus with teens!the pale carpets were a challenge to keep clean in a wet, muddy and windy week as our dog loves muddy puddles and racing through waves so we appreciated the outdoor tap and hose and we needed this every time we came in from a walk for cleaning dog and boots.Glad we brought lots of dog towels with us! the garden is not absolutely dog proof if you have a dog who jumps up on walls easily just to see what's on the other side! Our dog got out of the garden on the first day as there is a low wall at one end - no harm done as we supervise our dog at all times. Great to have a field behind the house for the early morning canine walks before breakfast.this house is a great location for both North and South coasts and as we enjoy going to both - the location was good."

"We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house. The surrounds could not be any better, my son walked to the beach from the house every day with his family and had breakfast by the beach at Mawgan Porth. The house is well-equipped with crockery, glasses, pans and so on. The large kitchen table was ideal for sitting around in the evening, and the little ones loved running from the kitchen through to the living room. Views of the sunset through the double doors in the living room were a highlight. We also barbecued one night, and used the woodburner on several evenings which made the living room cosy.The downside was the patchy wi-fi which was not working at all when we arrived which made communicating with the rest of the family who were on their way tricky!! However my son got it working again (for a while...) Brian was very good at sorting out the odd issue with bathrooms etc. and it was reassuring to have him on speed dial!!I highly recommend S20808 as a real home from home, and perfect for a large family reunion in peaceful surroundings."

"I loved staying at Quince Cottage, the flat is a great size and layout for a couple as it's nice and cosy but there's enough space to leave suitcases and to also do your own thing if you need to. Both bed and living room were comfortable, and the shower was great, I also liked the decor and the place was clean. We appreciated the DVDs that were in the living room, as well as the extra information in the welcome folder (There were several walk routes which I was I'd had time to try!) and it was very easy to check in and check out as it was just a key in a key safe. The only thing I didn't like was the noise from what was either the pipes or a neighbouring cottage, it wasn't excessive and not something I noticed in the day but it gave me a fright when I was in bed at night as it sounded like knocking on the door! Overall I really enjoyed my stay, and enjoyed the area and would stay at Quince Cottage again and for longer!"

"We had a wonderful week here. We arrived on the Saturday of the Easter weekend and our 3 children were very kindly given easter eggs by Susanne. We were also welcomed with a beautiful cream tea and also freshly laid eggs and a bottle of wine. It's a very cosy place to spend a week and we had everything we needed. The mobile signal is non existent but it isn't that much of a problem as there is Wi-Fi. Everything is spotlessy clean and there are jigsaws (managed to complete a 1000 piece one - great to keep the kids off their phones!) and plenty of books. Its near the wonderful beaches of Woolacombe and Saunton Sands and although the weather wasn't amazing, we still enjoyed lovely walks. We would recommend the walk to the Watersmeet National Trust tea house from Lynmouth. Fantastic place and would love to come again!"
