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.

Philippa - verified booking

"This is a great little place but probably better for adults / older kids than our family with a (very active and fast moving!) 2 year old and 6 year old. The garden is technically 'fully enclosed', however I was disappointed to see that there was a side gate on the front that would easily be opened by a small child and the driveway gates also weren't able to be locked shut in a way that made them child safe. There is also some spaces beside the gates that a sly little one or animal could squeeze through. And being on a fairly quiet, but certainly not deserted, open road speed limit area it made the outside far less usable than I would've hoped as we couldn't let the kids play outside whilst in the kitchen for instance. A shame as it's a decent space and I was looking forward to making use of the outside space. It would also have been good to have some kids outside play equipment of some kind perhaps - even a couple of footballs would've been good but a trampoline / climbing frame even better! Perhaps an idea for the future if the owners wish to appeal to younger families. There was no dishwasher which I personally would've preferred to the washing machine that is provided but I guess for others it may not be an issue. I would've also liked to see a bath mat in the downstairs shower room and to have seen extra towels available. These are obviously small things but it is the small things that can make a real difference! :-)Overall though the cottage is well equipped, the beds comfortable and the owner Rob was very friendly and helpful and did assist quickly with any issues we had and it was a nice base to get out and about in the area. I think there are some great markets around but not really something you can do with a two year old! LOL! Shame as would've loved to do that. Nearby Lincoln was lovely and the beach was only a short 30min drive away though we made the mistake of visiting Skegness which I wouldn't do again! We later found a much quieter beach area which was much more enjoyable. I understand there is good walking around but we didn't do any of those. Rand farm was worth a visit too.Although we wouldn't stay here again it is more a case of we wouldn't particularly feel the need to come to this area again than the cottage in particular."

"The Garden Cottage is wonderful and we'll certainly look to return if staying in that area again. A lovely modern two floor detached building behind the main (owner's) property, there is ample secure parking in a graveled parking area (lit on a sensor in the evenings) accessed via the private driveway running past the main house - you can park within a few feet of the front door. Key-safe is on the wall next to the front door containing the two sets of door keys. Nice peaceful lawn/garden and patio area at the rear of the building. Owners provided useful information in advance via phone/email and in person were warmly welcoming and available for assistance throughout the stay (though no help was actually needed) but kept to themselves and did not impose.Bedroom (comfy bed) and bathroom are downstairs with kitchen / lounge / breakfast bar upstairs, which is unusual, but works well. Immaculately clean, tastefully laid out, fitted, furnished and decorated. Useful and easy to follow folder of information on using the heating and cooking equipment and local amenities. Particularly loved the additional touches of providing a loaf of bread with butter-spread and chilled bottle of Prosecco (the latter of which was very welcome after long drive). Also utilized the DVDs and board games in the evenings.The only elements it lacked (which can't be helped and were not of concern to us anyway) were that it was not in scenic surroundings - so no stunning views - and the building itself is plain and functional. In all important aspects, however, 10/10."

"…where to begin with a stay and an experience which just seamlessly worked so well. Yes, the weather God’s also smiled on us such that the latter part of Sunday afternoon was spent by most of us sitting out in the deck chairs facing the setting sun..it was an incredible week-end weather wise and we really could not speak highly enough of the whole experience. The house works on so many levels and we were formerly resident in the Far East and have already mentioned it (Heatherside House) to that many people that hopefully some bookings from over there might materialize in the future! We were very appreciative of your patience with our booking and how accommodating you were. I honestly looked at the Croquet Lawn when we visited the property and thought, ‘well that will be too wet or damp and will not get any use’…oh how wrong I was! The ladies who cooked were great, the food very good indeed and really this is, as I am aware you already know, a very special venue..we all had the best week-end possible, with the laser clays also being a lot of fun. Whilst we were blessed with one of the best week-end's weather for summer, let alone that is was autumn, our three days at Heatherside House were quite simply brilliant. Every aspect of our stay from the venue itself to the in house caterers and including the arranged activity of laser clay's worked perfectly. Heatherside House is simply an outstanding venue for all ages to enjoy each other's company for a few days and to celebrate any special event. Edwards Group"

"Everyone had an amazing time in Devon and fell in love with Heatherside House. It really was the perfect venue and location. Even the mixed weather played to our advantage as we had a bit of everything! We were all very sorry to leave after what was an amazing weekend. The horse riding was a lot of fun and the girls who looked after us made sure everyone had a good ride, including the novices as well as the more expert riders. The murder mystery was very good. We had four actors who had to drive home in the middle of some rather horrendous weather, but it set the scene for the evening and they did a great job in getting everyone involved. The catered black tie dinner was delicious and provided a superb official dinner for my 40th birthday celebrations. So - we have some wonderful memories for what was a very special occasion. So thank you and the team for helping to make it possible."

"We had a enjoyable stay at Alnwick Loft the accommodation was ideal for what we wanted. It is in a good location for Alnwick & the surrounding areas.There was always hot water & we were plenty warm enough & never had to do a heating boost. Furniture etc really nice. Instruction booklet for hob was missing but we eventually got the hang of it!Wasn't keen on the way into the property & the hallway seemed a little damp. Could do with some sort of extractor in the bathroom. Don't want to be negative as I know things aren't always easy to remedy. Outside rubbish bin was an issue, full when we got there it wasn't general waste collection week so we had no option but to leave the rubbish next to the kitchen bin. Didn't like doing this but wheelie bin was rammed."
