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.

Emily - verified booking

"I seldom review holiday accommodation, however I feel impelled to do so with Cromer House Barn for several reasons. I include both positive and negative points in my review. Overall, I feel Cromer House Barn is over-priced for what is offered and that the emphasis on comfort is somewhat overplayed, and I do not deem it to be 'romantic' as advertised in some locations online. For this price range, I expect more in terms of the decor, the quality of the fixtures and fittings, as well as a more effective heating system and the presence of a small welcome such as a pint of local milk or loaf of local bread. The wood burner is simply not enough to heat both the main room and the water during winter. I would also illustrate that I am happy to put on layers and heat my own home in an environmentally conscious way, but given the price and that I was on a much-needed break, a more effective or indeed efficient heating system should be present. I hold the view that being environmentally friendly need not compromise ones comfort, but at Cromer House Barn this is the case. At this price point, I would simply not recommend this accommodation to friends or family, as you will have a more comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay elsewhere. Positive points include that the property is less than an hours drive from Newcastle upon Tyne, there is a co-op supermarket within walking distance and a good local pub which serves a very good Sunday lunch. Up to two dogs are allowed in the accommodation and the owner can provide additional sheets or blankets for furniture. Furthermore, the owners of the property are knowledgeable about the local area."

"A lovely barn, clean, well equipped and well kept. (Albeit as a dog owner you are asked politely to hoover after you and take the bins out when leaving). It's nice and close to a stocked carp/ mixed course fishing lake, that is well maintained and generally fishes well . The average carp size for us, being around 7 -12 lb, that generally came out on floating dog biscuit or bread. (There are bigger in there!) Bream, Perch, and Roach also came out on our stay.Peacock barn is situated just outside the small village of Timberland in the picturesque Fens countryside, with lots of wildlife on offer. We heard owls, foxes, saw plenty of kestrels, butterflies, pheasants, red legged partridges, etc.While we had to travel by car to find a local Supermarket, the village did have a local pub, 'The Penny Farthing'. It is a pleasant 10-15min walk away and serves an excellent homemade Steak and Ale pie, and lovely Lincolnshire sausages and mash! Highly recommended!!!The only 2 drawbacks we had on our stay were a very firm bed, a tad uncomfortable for us, and very rough underfoot, shower mats!The owners Adam and Amanda were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the barn, the fishing, and the local area. They were always on hand to help, often popping around the lake to see how we were getting on, or to offer advice if we needed it, or simply to listen to any concerns we had. Amanda even stood outside on the road, to guide us into the grounds, when we first arrived!Would definitely like to return for another visit."

"A superb, well-maintained property in a quiet location and we couldn't fault it. Included was the best welcome pack we have ever received, including milk, refreshing non-alcoholic drink, biscuits, strawberries and cream and a box of chocolates!One big advantage is that the owners live nearby and are very helpful and friendly, calling in to check that all is OK both on arrival and departure, though we had no issues.The ample parking space adjacent the property was very welcome.It is a lovely quiet area, the only noise being from the sheep in the field behind.There is shop nearby but few other local amenities; however, Hornsea is 10 minutes' drive away and has shops, a retail outlet and a Tesco superstore so shopping is no problem. Sadly the local beaches now have limited access due to coastal erosion, but there are several towns nearby with sea fronts such as Hornsea, Bridlington and Scarborough. The Yorkshire Moors with Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the North Yorks Railway are all within easy reach.The weather was warm when we stayed but I would guess that the cottage would be warm in winter as well as it boasts oil-fired central heating, double glazing and a wood-burning stove.We stayed 4 nights and are already booked to go again in September for 7 nights. I wouldn't mind the odd chilly evening as I want an excuse to light the stove!"

"Whilst the cottage itself was very good and there was an amazing welcome pack, the location for us was big disappointment. If I had known beforehand that there was no local pubs or restaurants within walking distance I wouldn't have booked it. The only pub/restaurant is closed, this needs to be updated on your website. Also there is a suggestion that the local store is less than a mile away which leads you to conclude that it's walkable, in theory this is correct, however, in practise it's not as the road doesn't have a footpath all the way and in fact where there is no footpath is the most dangerous ie on bad bends. There is also no wifi in the cottage which is another downside. So for these reasons we wouldn't book again. Sorry"

Lynn - verified booking

"Very spacious cottage in a very private setting with nice views. There are no facilities within comfortable walking distance and all roads to the sea are currently closed due to cliff erosion. We had chilly wet weather but the cottage was very warm and comfortable. An extensive welcome pack was provided which was appreciated. The cottage was superficially very clean but lacked attention to cleaning detail, taps and handles needed cleaning, several cooking utensils were caked in burnt food. There are no games or books for use on wet days, the magazines available date from 2008 and require updating. We would recommend the cottage to others if deep cleaning and updating of equipment and amenities took place."
