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.

Mike - verified booking

"This is a lovely cottage amid rolling green hills and farmland so provides a great retreat. We wanted the quiet location and were happy to drive everywhere but if you want pubs or shops on the doorstep then you may find this cottage a little too remote. It's a large place for 2 people so plenty of room and the layout works really well. We have a 5 month old baby and she could sleep at the other end of the lounge without us disturbing her. The kitchen was really well equipped which isn't always the case with rental cottages and the general standard of decor, fixtures and fittings was excellent. The place was always warm with heated floors and thick curtains so the log fire was left unused despite it being very cold outside. Our only complaint was the wifi which has a really poor signal and there's unsurprisingly no 4G either. Once connected, it's very fast but the signal kept dropping out as it comes from the main house and has some very thick walls to penetrate. The hot water in the kitchen was also just a dribble and took 5 mins to run hot. We would still return though as the remote location is lovely and most attractions are around 30-40 mins away by car. If it weren't for our baby, we'd also have taken advantage of the lovely walks that start from the cottage so perfect for a walking based holiday."

"Rear yard cobbles - covered in green moss type plant, table set near bins, empty plant pots and an overgrown tree blocks any sunlight. No way could you relax there. Entry to house grim, needs painting. All woodwork in house badly chipped and grubby, except bathroom. Living room furniture is far too large, leaving at most a 12 inch walkway around it. Worst room is the Kitchen. Huge fridge freezer takes up all space. Dining table and chairs siting is dangerous, being 6 inch’s from the cooker. There is no way that 4 people could be comfortable in this house. You cannot shower without wetting the floor - there’s no curtain. The bath is tiny with no grab rail or hand hold on one side. It’s really difficult to get of! Towels and bedding are well worn and faded. I accept that style is entirely subjective and therefore make no comment. The house was very clean."

"You never really know what to expect despite all the pretty pictures. The cottage was set in a very convenient position close to Filey town & beach but also close to the main network of roads leading to other coastal resorts. The cottage was spotlessly clean & very well equipped in fact better than my own home. A large double bedroom with ensuite the shower was powerful & plenty of hot water was available. The second bedroom (twin beds) was lovely with a beautiful bathroom next door. All furnishings and furniture was of very good quality. The enclosed garden was great with the bonus of another grass area just behind it. All in all I couldn’t find any fault and the visitors books comments are all positive. Would I stay in this cottage again yes yes yes I would I couldn’t recommend it highly enough"

Rachael - verified booking

"I thought the cottage itself was very cosy, welcoming and very clean. However for us privacy was an issue as the holiday home was in the owners garden at the side, the lounge bathroom and bedroom windows overlooked their garden. We had to keep curtains and blinds closed for privacy as both owners and kids were in garden during our stay quite a bit of the time so we were disturbed by noise of kids and dogs barking alot. WiFi did not connect at all during stay. The bed was a real let down far too small for couple should be at least a full double not small 4 ft. My husband slept on sofa. We were disturbed by the noise of the cockadooledoo around 4 am every morning waking us all up. We actually got up on our last day at 4 am packed up and left. Very disappointed over all sorry."

Phil - verified booking

"Booked a last minute visit to Woodlea as we wanted to get away from the Midlands to near the coast, and with Woodlea being pet friendly it became the ideal choice, especially as our dog struggles with stairs so being on 1 floor really helped.I can't fault the place, was cosy and comfortable, the only thing lacking were a few 'extras' Like wood for the log burner/ kitchen roll for the kitchen. In all fairness im sure if we'd have got in touch with the owners they'd have provided us with some but as it wasn't mentioned in the manual that was in the place on arrival, I didnt want to put them out.Nearest shop is 10mins drive away but there are big supermarkets in the nearby seaside towns (about 25minute drive)All in all a very nice experience, would stay again!"
