An unforgettable holiday is an unforgettable experience. Don’t take the natural beauty, history and character of your native country for granted – get out there and explore it!

From those cosy little hideaways that are evocative of simpler times, to spacious modern properties that boast their own heated swimming pools and hot tubs – with hundreds of holiday cottages in England there’s literally something for everyone.

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.

Robert - verified booking

"This is a grand old house in a splendid location and my review is made more in sadness than in anger. What might have once been described as rustic chic, certainly as far as the exterior is concerned, has sadly been allowed to decline through a lack of maintenence. Much of the timberwork at the rear (sea side) is peeling and the decking is in real need of a good jet-wash, repair and maintenence; the bottom step onto the deck is loose and is a hazard. When we were there, the gardens were overgrown and unkempt and planters sad, weedy and dead. I do realise that this is fairly early in the season but even so...On arrival at 3.10pm, we were ticked off by the cleaning lady (who is in fact a very pleasant and helpful person) because she said we were early -our details said 3.00pm and she said it should be 4.00pm. We hung around until 3.30 before unloading the cars.The interior decor of the rooms was good and the beds comfortable. The kitchen area was good and very big, the wooden cupboards being 19th century are in need of a good rub-down and wax polish. There is a broken floor tile by the sink which lifts in one corner when you stand on it and anyone with unprotected feet walking by at that point would receive a considerable injury from the shards. Our daughter was not able to operate the spa-bath in the on-suite bathroom. One of the shower wastes was partially blocked allowing water to flow onto the floor, which soaked my wife's wedding clothes, dripped through to the ceiling below and onto confetti which was on the kitchen table. All in all, not a happy experience. I did speak to the owner who was very sympathetic to our plight but disappointed that we had to ask for a gesture of recompence from Bookings.com. I feel something should have been proffered.I do hope that the proper resources are put into this property; we would love to have it. If it was brought up to scratch (we operate our own self-catering apartments in Devon) then this could be an absolute gem."

"A really lovely cottage, generously equipped and nicely furnished. It easily accommodated our group of 9 (aged 61 to 12 years old) and we had a great week. Beds surpassed our expectations, really comfortable with good linen and soft duvets. Kitchen was spacious with excellent white goods and well equipped. Fabulous dining room and spacious lounge. Kids liked the cellar games room. Nice modern showers and plenty of toilets for large groups. My only gripe was the sofas in the living room have seen better days (cushions are quite hard) and the benches on the main terrace are giving up the ghost. No problem, we took chairs out, but the rickety nature was a bit troubling. Note - there is virtually no mobile phone signal, but wifi was good and the owner has provided a land line.At the beginning of the week the views (outside terraces on 3 levels, fantastic views from 4 bedrooms) were great - sea, boats, white cliffs and France - but haze and then thick fog removed the view for the last 3 days! It was still atmospheric though, and we could hear the fog horns as the boats approached Dover Harbour.Hard work to walk to a pub, we didn't. However a short drive down to the beach and the Coastguard did excellent food, and the village store had all the basics (need to drive there really). Loads to do in the vicinity and some excellent walks across the cliffs. A bit alarming in thick fog though! Yes there are lot of steps, but we all managed fine and had a fabulous week. S13615 has a lovely friendly feel, and we may return."

"We had a lovely holiday at S18716, celebrating some family birthdays with a family party of 13, ages ranging from 4 - 80 years. The house was lovely and comfortable, the views were great, and the garden was good, especially for the children who loved playing on the play frame. We spent a lot of time sitting in the conservatory, which was a nice space to be in.The main issues with the house were the low ceiling going up to the attic - we had a few bumped heads until we stuck our own warning note on it. Also the floor level windows in the attic were worrisome with children around. It was very hot during our stay but we were generally reluctant to open the windows up there, making it a bit uncomfortable at times. It was good to have a large dining table to sit everyone round, but it was a bit too big; taking up the entire room and you would never utilise the space in the middle of the table because you can't reach it! Finally (and probably starting to be a bit nitpicking) the Aga meant the kitchen was very hot and uncomfortable (but the weather was very hot when we were there) we had some chocolates that had to be put in the fridge as they were melting, but the fridge itself wasn't very cold, which is an issue that may need to be addressed."

"We had an amazing time at S13615. The grandparents and dogs had the ground floor bedroom, teenagers in the attic and everyone else in between! It was nearly perfect for our extended family holiday. We had 3 under 5's who adored the games room (though we did hold our breath everytime they went up or down the stairs!). The views were amazing and we all loved sitting and listening to the sound of the waves.Yes, in some areas the decoration was a little tired - but with 5 children and 2 dogs this wasn't a problem for us, it just made us feel comfortable in using everything. The beds were comfortable and there was everything we needed and more provided. The only slight negatives are:The twin beds are now downstairs with a double in the attic - not as described and not what we had planned for.The garden is not dog safe. We moved some furniture around to make the terrace safe but had to stay close when they were in the garden or they would escape!Lack of teaspoons! Everything else was there - glasses, electric whisks blender etc but we would have liked another dozen teaspoons!!! All in all we had a great time and the house was really lovely - we could loose hours watching the view!"

"The Cottage felt very homely and warm. Everything we needed was supplied to make it a very comfortable stay. Making lovely warm fires in the evening was a real treat and the cottage was well placed for the local small supermarket and pubs. The children loved the summer house where they could play pool and darts which was a welcome diversion for them and us! It was lovely to be able to take our Westie away with us, however owners of small dogs beware, as the garden whilst totally enclosed was not fully escape proof for mischievous little dogs! The walks up to Tennyson Down from the cottage were super and the views unsurpassed. Would recommend the west coast as the coastal walks and fossil hunting were great fun.All in a all a great Easter week spent on the Island, with Freshwater proving to be a great base and the cottage being a home from home after a day's walking and exploring"
