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.

Rob - verified booking

"We had the most wonderful time at the Cosy Cakery. The owner was very friendly and showed us around - everything was ready for us.The welcome pack of scones, jam and clotted cream along with some scrumpy and milk in the fridge was lovely. The cottage was spotless and we had everything we could want and more - even tea bags and coffee were already there.The beds were comfy and the shower refreshing. There was plenty of room for four of us and the conservatory was a lovely place to sit in the morning or evening.Our children loved the big garden with plenty of room to play badminton and it had easy access to the drive to take bodyboards and wetsuits straight into the garden to dry.While the location was in the countryside and felt quiet, it was still not far to get into Bude town centre or to Morrisons for some groceries.We recommend a walk along the cycle track or canal towpath into Bude in the evening. It was only a mile each way and helped work off a meal or drink in the pub. I also used it as a short circuit for running.We loved Crooklets Beach and Widemouth Bay (best for bodyboarding) and both were an easy drive from the Cosy Cakery.We had very high hopes for the Cosy Cakery and these were surpassed.We had a fabulous week there and would definitely return to the Cosy Cakery when we holiday in Bude again."

"To start of from the positives, the place had a unique retro feel to it which was fantastic. It ticked all the boxes for a family holiday with pool, tennis court, fire place, local amenities, farm animals etc. I have no problems recommending this property with the following to bear in mind while booking.we were a party of 4 families all with kids. we all felt that the room sizes are bit small to accommodate each family on its own. Moreover there are only two bathrooms on either end with one attached to a room so all the other three families ended up using a common bathroom which became a bit too much.There was a fire place but it wasnt working and there is only 1 small radiator in the lounge so in the night we felt bit cold. The old school windows didnt help as we could feel the cold air coming through them.In addition to this our room which was on the extreme right had big gaps in the floor easy to fit toddler foot in so had to take extra care.But in general the house feels grand and the DVD and books collection complement the theme. The large dining in the conservatory also adds to the grandeur of the property. We were bit lucky as the next door neighbors, who run birds of prey, introduced us to owls.To see the full potential and enjoy the property a summer booking is essential."

"The house was exactly like the photos showed and what we wanted. Sally was helpful in letting us have the keys earlier than 4pm and very knowledgeable about the area. Also showing how to get the best from the house, washing machine, heating etc.The reasons I marked the house down slightly is due to the noise of cars coming in to the main bedroom window, double glazing would help this. The road appeared busy for workers getting to work early in the mornings, busier than we were expecting.Previous tenants had not cleaned one of the pans in the oven so when we heated the oven up, this set off the smoke alarm, so can guarantee that was working.The second bedroom did not have much storage area.There were nice little touches like flowers and a pint of milk left which we appreciated.Across the bridge, 2mins away was the Woodbridge Inn who were helpful, dog friendly and served great food.Ironbridge was 2.5 miles walk away following the river and taking this route also lead you to the Tile museum (worth a visit). it was approximately 5 mins to drive so great to get to all the local attractions.This is the first time I have used this site but will do so again as found it easy to book and get what you expected."

Noel - verified booking

"A large and comfortable house that easily accommodated our family party of 8 people (two grandparents, three adult children and three grandchildren. Lovely large and secure garden for the children to play in with rota access each day to a nice outdoor pool. A lot of places for the family to visit within reasonable travelling distance. The house is an old farmhouse in an attractive rural setting but only minutes from the centre of the attractive small town of Newent. Furniture and fittings are comfortable (not modern), and it has some sloping floors upstairs! The family bathroom is not great but is ok. The kitchen is well equipped. The only real disadvantage for us was the absence of a downstairs toilet but now the grandchildren are a bit older it is less of an issue. It is a house full of character and we loved it and the surroundings."

Andrea - verified booking

"A really comfy and cosy cottage in a delightful area. Waking to the gorgeous countryside views was absolutely wonderful. This was an early family Christmas break and the Christmas decor and log burner made the break so enjoyable. A really nice pub is fairly close to the cottage and there are great walks. It’s also close enough to visit Chester, plus Cheshire Oaks and we even travelled to Liverpool. The owner Jane was also extremely welcoming. The fittings within the cottage are of high quality and it’s very tastefully decorated. This is a great property for a family, but I’m not sure if it would be ideal for 2 couples even though it easily sleeps 4 people. The upstairs has quite low ceilings for adults and the only bathroom is also the ensuite of the downstairs bedroom. However, that said we will be returning as we loved our stay!"
