Holiday Cottages in England

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! Choosing England holiday cottages gives you the chance to do just that, with accommodation that’s bursting with character. 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. England holiday cottages offer an authentic self-catered experience, giving you and the family the freedom to enjoy your time off in exactly the way you choose, and with many pet-friendly options available your beloved pet can even accompany you on the adventure.

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.

Joanna - verified booking

"Four of us had a lovely week at S79257. Initial impressions of the property as you drive up to it, as someone else has said, aren’t great – it looks quite tired and unkempt outside at the front as well as the back - but inside the property is great! It’s spacious, light, and bright, and well laid-out with some stylish-looking furniture (although one of the leather sofas is quite badly worn). It’s a perfect location for visiting plenty of places, with Hayling Island itself providing excellent facilities. The welcome pack was much appreciated and first impressions inside were that everywhere you could see was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable and we had pretty much everything we needed. The views from the balcony were spectacular and we were treated to some fantastic sunsets. There are, however, some issues that need noting... On arrival, the living area had a very strong smell of dogs. I had spoken with Debby the owner in advance of arriving and mentioned that I am asthmatic and allergic to dogs (when we booked the property, there was either no note of dogs being allowed, or we missed it entirely, but it’s something we usually check for obvious reasons) and she kindly advised that she would ask the cleaners to make sure that they did an extra deep clean so that everywhere was spotless, which I really appreciated. Unfortunately, they hadn’t. Following our noses (mine, by which time, was itching badly, as were my eyes, resulting in the need to take antihistamines and inhalers) we discovered a LOT of fluff, dirt, dog hairs, and general detritus under the two sofas. It took us less than 15 minutes to sweep and mop the floor. The sofas move easily, so it’s not a difficult job for the cleaners to do, especially when they’ve been specifically asked. We also cleared the cushions and the rather shabby throws away from the sofas, as they had dog hairs on them, and wiped over the sofas. We opened all of the windows to allow the air to circulate and by the following evening my breathing had improved and thankfully I was fine for the rest of the week. A couple of other things – there was a toilet brush left in the downstairs toilet – with the seat down! – and the downstairs shower screen had not been cleaned at all. I noted all of this to Debby in reply to her text on our return (she’d mentioned at the beginning of our stay that she had something personal that she had to attend to, so we didn’t want to disturb her then), but I didn’t hear back from her with an explanation or apology, which is rather disappointing.Also, the bin lids in the kitchen hadn’t been cleaned at all and it would have been useful to have some oven gloves in the kitchen. The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom were all fine, although a shaver socket in the upstairs bathroom and a mirror in the second double bedroom would have be helpful.All in all it was a great week and we can recommend the property to small or large groups and anyone who has dogs or isn’t allergic to them, but sadly it’s somewhere that we’ll be able to go back to for that reason alone."

"It could be fantastic with a few adjustments. In both the twin rooms upstairs only 1 of the skylights had working blinds. And the windows that did have blinds, the blinds were light coloured so didn’t really do anything to keep the light out. My children were up with the sun every morning and so were we. I booked the cottage on the premise that there was WiFi available. It was definitely one of the main criteria when we were looking for accommodation. We have small children who go to bed early and we wanted to watch films on the computer. Also, they like to relax with their kindles after a busy day exploring. Unfortunately, there was no WiFi available in Goose Cottage. I really feel that this cottage cannot be advertised as WiFi enabled and feel quite angry that it is not as advertised. We asked the vendors and were told they had someone coming Monday. There was still no WiFi when we left. On the other hand, my children thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals everyday and the owner was lovely with the children. Very patient with the thousand questions asked. I feel quite bad with the low scores as most things were great, but our main criteria wasn’t sufficiently met."

"This is the second time we have stayed at S89460 and we have really enjoyed both our stays. The cottage itself is lovely and very well presented. The new bathroom and toilet has made a big difference. All the neccesessities such as tea, coffee, biscuits etc had been left for us and after a mishap with the key the owners were very helpful and popped straight over to help us which was greatly appreciated. Unfortunately since our last stay the local village shop has closed so the only thing i would mention is that it is about 3 miles to the nearest shop in hawkshead but if you plan in advance it certainly isnt a deal breaker. The cottage is in a great location in a quiet part of the lake district with lots of great walks nearby. We ate at both the local pubs the cuckoo brow and the tower bank arms which were both excellent. We will most certainly be visiting again."

"Goose Cottage was amazing! Pat and her Son Alastair were lovely people, very welcoming and friendly on arrival - nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself was lovely and clean with all of the equipment we needed for our family holiday. The garden areas were lovely, Pat fed the animals each morning and the children (and adults) were able to join in the fun!The facilities on site were great - a lovely garden area with bench just outside the back door, the pool, the tennis court and a playground which the children in our group loved. Plenty of fields locally too so you could go for a walk in the day or evening if you wanted to and enjoy the views of the sunset. We'd highly recommend Goose Cottage and the other Cottages at Quinceborough Farm. We had relatives who stayed in another at the same time as us and they loved it too!"

"Lovely old property clean and very spacious - a really lovely house and perfect distance from Bath. BE AWARE OF THE ADDITIONAL ELECTRICITY BILL AT THE END OF YOUR STAY! The electricity bill at the end of the holiday is something to be very aware of though particularly in the colder months as the property is only equipped with old storage heaters and very old appliances that seem to eat up the pennies - over 65 for electricity in one week was very steep given the price of the property itself and that we really didn't have the heat on that much. If the electricity bills are so high the owner really should look at switching to more energy efficient options and insulating doors and windows as there are gaps to see the sunlight through."
