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.

Ann - verified booking

"We have given a very low score for cleanliness as on arrival we found the cottage hadn’t been cleaned since the previous occupants left, beds unusable as bed linen was dirty and so were all of the towels. We were unable to unpack or to shower and spent our first night after a eight hour journey on the sofa and the chair in the lounge. We were unable to contact yourselves or the owner as there was’nt a mobile signal in Port Isaac. This was resolved the next day and a cleaner arrived about midday, she was most apologetic although she wasn’t at fault.Generally the standard of cleanliness we have come to expect having stayed in previous holiday rentals was sadly lacking. The kitchen cupboards were very musty, the cooker was greasy, the sofa and chair in the lounge were stained and dirty. Also there were cobwebs in corners and a number of faulty lightbulbs. The second bedroom was swamped by the bed therefore it lacked a set-up to get ready. The main bedroom lacked any storage or hanging space for clothes and we lived out of our suitcases for the entire holiday. As it is an attic room we realise space is tight but a chest of drawers would easily have fitted into the space taken up by a blanket box. Maybe hanging could have been fitted between the rafters.In addition a dishwasher rather than a washing machine would have been much more appreciated. Basic items were not provided eg. A cafetière, salt and pepper grinders were empty. No welcome pack on arrival either. Although the cottage is marketed as being dog friendly dogs are only allowed downstairs, this should be made clear as the lounge is on the first floor."

"We all enjoyed S20720 , the best part being it’s location although getting to it and parking was a pain. It was equipped well but thought the washing machine a waste of time and space as no where to dry any washing ? A dishwasher would be far more useful . We had a giggle each time the loft toilet was used as we had never seen one like these in action , so noisy! but hey better than not having one .We all struggled trying to close doors as none of them closed hence I suddenly realised the reason for big balls of rope door stops in every room , the only way sometimes to keep the doors shut . I got stuck in the main bathroom as the latch stuck ...again causing fits of laughter . We thought the cottage quirky , cosy and did feel at home , the only reason we wouldn’t stay again was that I didn’t take into account as hubby complained not much of a view, he likes to see the sea and enjoys watching life going on around , so that’s my fault . I wouldnt hesitate in recommending S20720 to others though,although I do think on reflection the letting rate was a bit high, but there again it was tastefully furnished , with nice quality items but it’s sad that others did not treat it like home as the covers on the most comfortable lounge furniture were a bit dirty in places , we tried turning them over but they were worse the other side . Oh the beds were lovely to sleep on , with nice clean sheets so in all , we did have a nice stay ."

"S20720 is pint-sized luxury accommodation in a distinctively charming location. Port Isaac is like some Italian fishing village reeking with allure.The listing says “dogs welcome”, but a more accurate descriptions would be “dogs welcome in kitchen”. The owners request that you keep any dogs contained to the kitchen and provide a baby gate to block of the rest of the property from them. Our dogs were not so happy to be exiled there during our stay (coincidentally, the command to punish my childhood dog was “Kitchen” which sent him off to his bed in the kitchen).The whole property is a bit squoze in. The second bedroom has a bed that is more of a one-and-half sized bed than a proper double bed. And even then it pretty much fills the room so completely that you can barely walk around it. The main bedroom is situated on the "top floor", aka converted attic crawl space. And crawl you do have to do most of the tie to get around it. It's 5’ 8” at the apex, but that means that most of the room is half that height. Still, my wife was pleased that I was forced to use the toilet sitting down.The property is beautifully decorated and maintained, and is located superbly in the heart of this great seaside destination, but be prepared for cozy accommodation at bedtime."

"Idyllic setting, tranquil with a lovely garden. Furniture and beds extremely comfortable, even the pillows. Good attention to detail in the equipment. Very generous welcome pack although we didn't use much of it as it didn't meet our dietary requirements.It would have been helpful to have some information in the folder about where you were allowed to walk from the cottage. We assumed that because the gate opened out of the back garden that it was ok to walk up and onto the back entrance to Mathon Court but we weren't sure. Also, rather surprised by the lack of recycling facilities and advice for the local area. A list of places to eat within a radius of the cottage would have been helpful. It was the one thing we found difficult. Lucky there was a Waitrose and M & S in Malvern!The only other thing that would have been lovely were a couple of comfortable sun loungers. The outside furniture was very good, with a choice of two sets and padded seat covers but it was such a beautiful setting that we would have liked to have "lounged" outside for an afternoon! This is being VERY demanding!I have stayed in many different cottages over the last 20 years but this was definitely the most comfortable and a glorious spot."

"Second time we have stayed here and once again we enjoyed our stay. Very clean. But this time we felt the place and equipment was due for an upgrade. Thats not to say that anything was wrong it wasn't but just like at home you know when its time to get a new carpet etc or redecorate or re-stock on basic items. The sofas looked second hand and had been repaired. One kitchen cupboard door fell off when we got there and I refitted the loo seat. The main light kept going on and off. Outside there were loose patio slabs. So for next year we've booked again via cottages.com whom we cannot fault but a different property. Oh the bed had a piece of wood holding it up in the middle for some reason. But did we enjoy ourselves? Yes. Would we stay again? Not sure to be very honest, nearly £1100 for a weeks stay is now pushing it given the lowering standards. If everything is spot on you don't mind paying one bit."
