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.

Andrew - verified booking

"When we arrived at the premises S57587, it was blowing a gale and raining. However when we entered the premises there were electric storage heaters installed, but they we not switched on. The only other heating was an electric convector heater on the wall in the bedroom! Also, there was only a thin summer quilt on the double bed, and no additional bedding in the premises. When the owner arrived at 6:00PM, she stated that we could not use the storage heaters as they used too much electricity! Instead she offered a small oil filled electric radiator, and a winter quilt for the bed! We then found that there were no instructions for the bath shower, and the plug in the bathroom since did not hold the water in. As a result, we had to wash in the kitchen sink! The toilet seat was loose, and when you flushed the toilet it flushed twice by itself. There were no coat hangers in the wardrobe, so coats and shirts could only be hung on the back of the front door at the bottom of the stairs. The kitchen equipment was basic, with only essential utensils, the light over the cooker did not work, and was replaced by a battery light, but the batteries were dead! Need I say anymore! As a result of the cold accommodation, and the other points above, we have left the premises this morning. From the initial response by the owner I did not bother to raise these points with her."

"Seacliff is a very tired rental and would benefit from some tlc maintenance and a good clean.On pulling up our first impressions of seacliff were very disappointing. Garden was a mess , completely overgrown, scaffolding on the floor tree cuttings piled up, spilt cement on the drive, not very welcoming at all!On entering we were hit with a foul damp smell , we had to open all doors and windows, went to put champagne in utility fridge to be faced with mould, not impressed! Upstairs kitchen had mouse droppings in the cupboard, and the bin bag had been chewed in the morning. A dishwasher with no tablets , 1 toilet roll,pubic hair in the shower, crumbs beside the bed, cobwebs... I could go on! We took photos to back this up.Seacliff has not been presented well at all. Tiles falling off the wall on the balcony, balcony railings loose making a gap big enough for a child to fall through, dirty “blown” patio doors, that we needed to oil as we couldn’t open.Fortunately between us we didn’t let it spoil our celebrations.For the amount we paid for 2 nights we were very disappointed and would not recommend seacliff and feel I we were over charged and would like my money back.Your photos are very misleading."

"Came here with 4 teenagers so disappointed to find under 15s couldn’t use the pool without supervision. I feel this should be made very clear on the website, as it restricted us all. I wouldn’t have booked if I knew.The lodge was not very clean and I spent the first couple of hours sweeping and wiping down surfaces particularly the balcony area. The BBQ was filthy and unusable which was another huge disappointment.One of the bathroom locks didn’t work. They tried to fix it but didn’t, so 4 teenagers felt very uncomfortable using the shower and toilet for fear of being walked in on.The dishwasher was another feature that led me to book, but sadly the plates didn’t fit in it, so I spent time having to wash up which also wasn’t part of my holiday plans!Other than that we enjoyed the local area. The Tarka Trail was lovely and we had a great day cycling and seeing the sights.Overall we made the best of it but felt it was let down by lack of attention to detail and poor information. Great if you have small children but avoid if you have teenagers wanting independence."

"The cottage is lovely, clean and well equipt. It's in quite location up a country lane. The owners are on site and they are lovely people, very friendly and helpful. The only draw back is the garden, although each cottage has its own allowcated bit of garden, the dogs have access, which is fine if they are both friendly and you don't mind someone elses dog wondering in to you property and eating your dogs biscuits! The gardens could be separated with a simple trellis fence that would make it great! Also the bathroom with the bath could do with a hand rail to help oldies like us to get in and out of the shower/bath. But I would most defernatly reccomend this property. There is a great paddock to walk your dog. you won't be disappointed, take lots of dog biscuits."

"The owners were very nice and friendly, and the cottage is well-located for attractions, beaches etc, and close to a very good local shop. Unfortunately the cottage itself was cold and very damp; so much that my son found it hard to sleep. In addition, much of the equipment was old and rickety. The oven hood was barely functional (though the smoke alarm worked well!!), the communal washing machine and dryer barely worked; it was guesswork how much money to put in, and my clothes came out only slightly cleaner and wringing wet, so I ended up doing my second load by hand. Also, the pool table in the games room cost 50p a go, yet had no white ball. All in all, it was a disappointment, I'm afraid."
