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.

Nishal - verified booking

"For the price paid and the grading, S20650 was generally a let down. For 3 nights there was 1 toilet roll between 3 adults, no kitchen roll, foil etc. the freezer looked like it hadn't been defrosted since purchase with drawers not even able to slide open without a tug. The bathroom had bits in the bathtub there was even a dead fly on the floor, do look out for the dead flies/insects in the spot lamps in the bathroom. The light on the bathroom mirror wasn't functioning. There is a gap between the bottom of the shower screen to stop the water splashing onto the floor and whilst showering you will have to fight with the screen to stop it swinging into you.NO bath towels for a 4 star graded property. The pictures have been taken in a manner to make you think there is more space, where in reality you would best placed with 2 adults and 2 small children.We also had our 4 month child and missed a waste bin outside where nappies would have gone or even the kitchen waste when we had a full bin.Windows were dirty downstairs, granted a courtyard view can't be changed but they were filthy.This is not a 4 star property and wasn't worth the price paid. Finally, we were waited upon on the day we were due to leave with what appeared to be the cleaning team, we have a 4 month old and timings can change with feeding. AT 10am on the dot they entered the property where a little more compassion for our situation would have been respectful. The cherry on the cake of our visit was complete."

"A lovely place run by lovely people. The accommodation is all on one level above a tearoom, with just a hedge separating the canal that runs along side.The balcony gives lovely views across the fields and canal and there are so many different birds, including Tawny owls. A ten minute walk along the towpath under the little bridge will bring you to the Navigation pub, or walk another twenty five or so to the Queens Head (ten minutes by car). We ate three times at the Queens Head and the food was very excellent. They serve food 12pm-9pm pretty much every day, so ideal for families like us who aren't great at organising our day.The Navigation pub isn't open an often, but I popped in for a pint on a couple of evenings and found it a friendly place, with many people commenting on how good the food was. Oswestry is close by with about four supermarkets. The Morrisons also has a petrol station.S82994 is run by Iain and Fiona, who are both lovely and real grafters. The coffee, cake, scones etc. were all excellent and all the food was home made I believe.We were able to use one of their canoes for a day which was great fun.We had a great time and hope to be back."

"Spacious apartment (OK for a family of 4) situated at the top of a steep hill overlooking the Wookey Hole complex. The welcome pack (bottle of wine, biscuits & milk) was a nice surprise. Although the apartment is decorated & dressed with an abundance of ‘Hearts, Love & Musical Note’ ornaments, stencils & wooden blocks, it’s a shame the same attention to detail is lacking in the owners / cleaners ‘Pre-arrival/Changeover Checking Procedure’. In particular the condition & cleanliness of the shower, grouting/ sealant strip, stained dining area carpet, some kitchen equipment and utensils. It was also evident that no-one had recently sorted through the large pile of visitor guides, brochures & magazines in the lounge as they included a 2016 Christmas Gift Guide, a ‘Clear Glaze’ glazing pamphlet, a 2017 Airline Inflight Duty-free catalogue and various visitor guides dating back to 2016.We feel that a more attentive Pre-arrival check would have rectified a lot of these issues.Unfortunately we wouldn't stay here again."

"The apartment was disappointing. It was the only place I have ever stayed in my 77 years in which the gas boiler was located in the bedroom, with all the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning. There was no carbon monoxide alarm. In addition, the noise of the boiler kept us awake at night.The furniture was of poor quality and was uncomfortable. There was no information/brochures about the local area; and no books of any type. It was poorly equipped. These days one expects a washing machine and dishwasher as basic equipment; neither was provided. To be charged over £450 -00 for an off peak week in this flat October, which was not a half term holiday, was simply unjustified.To end on a positive note: The owner , Tony, who lives upstairs from the flat, is a helpful and decent person. ."

"A very clean, comfortable and well equiped lodge on a small, quiet park. I was a little taken aback initially by just how small the park was, literally 3 lodges and 1 tourer caravan, but it wasnt actually a problem as long as you realise you're not really in walking distance for a newspaper, a pint of milk or possibly more importantly a pub! Nevertheless it is conveniently located for Pocklington and York. I had one slightly negative comment. I had originally booked for 2 adults and one child (aged 15). As it turned out it was only one adult and child and while the lodge was spacious and well equiped, there was only a sofa in the living area and i just felt that 3 of us sitting together on the sofa each night, might have been a little too cosy. However i would definitely go back to S26756."
