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.

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.

David - verified booking

"S50422 is well equipped and located. The house manager was incredibly helpful and provided a lovely personalised welcome pack. The kitchen is well equipped and the wifi and smart TV were great to have. The house in our opinion could do with some updating in terms of painting. The ceiling is very low in the kitchen, and the shower in the downstairs en-suite bathroom is quite small although works well. There are beams and sloping ceilings upstairs so tall people need to be aware of this!The conservatory is lovely and has a great wood burner – we echo another reviewer’s comments though that this would mean that the downstairs is all incredibly hot in hot weather. The property is well located in terms of being very close to the New Forest and near to the sea and lovely beaches. Nearby are a couple of small towns that have supermarkets and useful shops, and the most local pub (The Plough) serves good food. The road to the pub however is, in our opinion, not one we would walk down as it is a country lane with no lighting and little space to keep out of the road as cars pass. Easy drive to both pubs. The cottage is close to Lymington and Lyndhurst where it is very easy to get to these places.It must be stated however that, contrary to the website description, the property is neither detached nor secluded. Physically attached to the property are working stables and the house is not fully at the end of the lane as stated and the lane is used at all times of the day and into the very late evening by people tending to their horses. You can therefore hear the horses and any related activity from within the house at all hours (including overnight), and in particular this could be heard in the bedrooms. There is also another house within metres of this house also so it is not as secluded as we had hoped for.The garden is lovely although it does look out onto the lane with people driving past as mentioned above therefore it is not private. There are also other houses visible from the garden, and we could hear children / tractors / renovation noises etc. If you are early risers and don’t mind some neighbour noise and are not particularly concerned about people coming and going then this is a lovely location and house; but if, like us, you were specifically looking for a fully detached and secluded peaceful property with no near neighbours and a good level of privacy then we would not recommend this property."

"Lovely traditional cottage, very close to Sandsend and Whitby. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children, the kitchen was well equiped and the stove kept us comfortable in the evenings. We had a fire most evenings and the included logs and coal lasted the week. The heater didn't work in the twin room, however, a portable radiator had been put in there, and to be honest, kept that room warmer than the heater in the small double room did. We had a really lovely time at the cottage, and once everywhere was warm, it was great. Obviously as a older property, it can take a while for the building to warm through, but after a good fire on Friday, the fire on Saturday just kept it topped up.The pub next door only seemed to be open and serving food Fri-Sun, perfect for our late arrival on Friday night. Food was fantastic though and very homely. Our daughter wasn't keen on their childrens menu so they changed it slightly for her which she thought was great!My brother and wife stayed in the smaller cottage next door for the weekend and it was great to be able to be together without having to rent a huge property for 8 when we only needed it for the weekend."

"We'd booked the cottage for 4 nights for a short break for our Wedding Anniversary. The acommodation itself was fine, apart from a bit of maintenance required. The heating had a reluctance to work. It was pretty cold during our stay, and coming back to the cottage late afternoon it would take about and hour and a half to get a radiator warm , and in a morning to get up it would go off about an hour after putting it on! We did report it to the owners. The outside areas need a great deal of maintenance, and there is no parking directly outside the cottage as had seemed to be intimated on the listing. This was awkward for my husband who is partially disabled. As stated there are no local amenities, but this didn't bother us in the slightest, we did however pick the worst time after snow and heavy rain which made the narrow lanes difficult to drive on, at any other time these would be good walking territory! We did also find that 3pm in the Winter was a bit of a late time to take possession of keys, but we knew that in advance so we can't grumble."

"The hot tub is definitely a winner for this cottage! Our favourite part.Furnishings fine, however a few gripes - there was a lack of basic supplies... only 1 toilet roll per bathroom, no hand soap in the downstairs bathroom, empty teabag jar, empty salt & pepper pots. Could have done with some foil and washing up liquid too! Especially as the dishwasher didn't appear to be doing its job properly so we found numerous dirty glasses and plates in the kitchen cupboards which we then had to go out and buy washing up liquid for to clean!I would recommend the Anchor pub down the road, friendly staff, delicious food and we tried some nice gins too. Oh and like most places, dog friendly. Cottage is also a good location for heading into Wells, which has a great beach for dogs to run around on."

Rick - verified booking

"We really enjoyed our stay at New Year. The cottage had plenty of room for us, and the Christmas decorations were a bonus. It was a little cold when we arrived as it is heated by storage heaters, but it soon warmed up and the woodburning stove was excellent. The kitchen was well equipped for the family, and the accommodation comfortable. The road was fairly noisy, but we were aware of that when booking and soon got used to it. A great location, close to Whitby and attractions, and had everything that we needed."
