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.

Tony and Shirley - verified booking

"We had a lovely week at The Barn, everything we needed was there and the accommodation has a very homely feel. We tended to spend most of our time there in the the kitchen/diner, nice comfy chairs and a lovely AGA.The garden area is safe and secure, perfect for our little dog, and there was a safe and convenient place to park.We spent our week visiting family and friends in the area, and also visited Houghton Lodge at Stockbridge, Mottisfont Abbey at Romsey and Gilbert White's house at Selborne, (literally just up the road). We found some lovely places to take our dog for walks, there is certainly plenty to see and do in the area, and so many gardens, pubs etc. are dog friendly.Thankfully we were blessed with superb weather for the week, and as we visited in May, the birdsong and the dawn chorus was an absolute joy. I wish I could have recorded it.All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our week and would certainly return. And for anyone who is apprehensive about using an AGA, don't be. It's really easy, in fact it couldn't be easier and the results are excellent. I just wish I had room for one, I've become a convert like so many others.We received a very nice welcome pack which was much appreciated, and the owner Mrs. Nettle was very welcoming and ensured that we had everything we needed. The Barn is definitely the nicest place we have stayed so far, and I'm sure we will return in due course."

"We loved staying in the Barn. It feels right as soon as you step through the door into the kitchen/diner. At this time of year the Aga is like a warm welcoming hug. The Barn is spacious, warm, comfortable and peaceful, being situated in a very quiet lane. Although opposite the owner’s home it has no windows on that side so you feel completely private indoors.It is very clean and excellently equipped. Whatever you want, it will be there in one of the many cupboards or drawers. In fact there was so much “stuff” that there wasn’t an empty cupboard for any food which isn’t suitable for putting in the large ‘fridge/freezer. Perhaps this could be addressed by removing some of the wine glasses! Even the hardest of drinkers would be hard pressed to use a fraction of what is provided!The sofas and bed in particular, were really comfortable. (The bed is two singles zipped together. This takes up a lot of space so remember to duck your head getting round one side to avoid hitting the sloping ceiling.)The bidet needs fixing. Water only dribbles out and the pop up waste doesn’t work.Wine, beer and biscuits were provided in the welcome pack but not milk or tea so come with all your provisions as you can’t just pop out to a shop.Cupboard space and bidet aside, this is a quality holiday home and feels like home.We would not hesitate to stay here again."

Susan - verified booking

"Set in beautiful countryside, surrounded by walks for the dog and not too far to walk to a nearby beach (not dog friendly though), this is the ideal location for a family holiday. The restaurant served breakfast, lunch and dinner - basic pub fayre but wholesome and tasty - and had a well appointed outside seating area. Falmouth is a small town and everything is within walking distance but there are some pretty steep hills so not for the faint-hearted. We particularly enjoyed playing on the pool table and my Partner and Son used the gym a couple of times. Sadly I didn't know there were tennis courts or I would have packed my tennis shoes and racquets. On the downside, the double bed was very hard and the TV a bit small for what was quite a large living area and the provided towels could have been a bit newer and fluffier."

Yvonne - verified booking

"The bed was broken 3 nights on the sofa fell through the damaged bed 3 times even after it was meant to have been fixed.Washing machine broken been out of action since last August according to the visitors book dangerous plug next to bed broken and wires exposed,one fork the other one was a desert one!Parking £9 per day if you can get in the one and only car park at the end of the road, roadside parking available if you don’t move your vehicle for the week!All in all a disappointing week away! Owner lives in Spain therefore very difficult to sort out any problems that arise, the cleaning lady was lovely and did her best to sort out the issues with the bed we finally had a new one delivered after 3 nights sleeping on the sofas"

Claire - verified booking

"This is a super place to stay, great location with so many local places to visit and explore. Woore has its own bakery, two pubs pretty much at the end of the drive. The property has been recently renovated and it is fabulous, quality modern furnishings, well equipped and spotless. We are a family of four but with three bedrooms, one on ground floor with down stairs loo, this is really flexible accommodation. We met the owners a couple of times as they live in the Manor House, they were very helpful and certainly wanted to ensure we had the best experience. We were delighted and would live to return to explore the area further."
