Holiday Cottages In England To Rent

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.

Nishal - verified booking

"For the price paid and the grading, S20650 was generally a let down. For 3 nights there was 1 toilet roll between 3 adults, no kitchen roll, foil etc. the freezer looked like it hadn't been defrosted since purchase with drawers not even able to slide open without a tug. The bathroom had bits in the bathtub there was even a dead fly on the floor, do look out for the dead flies/insects in the spot lamps in the bathroom. The light on the bathroom mirror wasn't functioning. There is a gap between the bottom of the shower screen to stop the water splashing onto the floor and whilst showering you will have to fight with the screen to stop it swinging into you.NO bath towels for a 4 star graded property. The pictures have been taken in a manner to make you think there is more space, where in reality you would best placed with 2 adults and 2 small children.We also had our 4 month child and missed a waste bin outside where nappies would have gone or even the kitchen waste when we had a full bin.Windows were dirty downstairs, granted a courtyard view can't be changed but they were filthy.This is not a 4 star property and wasn't worth the price paid. Finally, we were waited upon on the day we were due to leave with what appeared to be the cleaning team, we have a 4 month old and timings can change with feeding. AT 10am on the dot they entered the property where a little more compassion for our situation would have been respectful. The cherry on the cake of our visit was complete."

"While we enjoyed our stay & made the best of our time........The macorator in the en suite goes off during all hours of the night & is very loud!Advertises free WiFi, your device will load the WiFi symbol but it does not work (didn’t for us!) Advertises bathrobes supplied, we didn’t get any! All the bits of hair/ fluff/ sand etc had been swept under the tables! Beware if taking your dog it does not state online they are not allowed in the carpeted rooms which only leaves the kitchen, entrance hall & conservatory which was too hot as we had fab weather & I imagine in winter it would be the opposite so not a safe option & on the back of the house so unless we sat in the hall or kitchen our pooch was alone!!!Our pooch is part of the family would not have booked here if this had been made clear online!!!Local bar is about a mile away & up quite a steep climb, nearest shops are in Maryport 3.5 miles away. Sky advertised but does not work so not sure what the honesty box for sky sports is all about! Misleading as I / we/ you book on the information supplied, when I phoned to book they even confirmed sky sports worked & you are asked to contribute £ in the honesty box. I don’t usually leave reviews but it’s unfair to advertise aspects which are not available or included especially re the pet. We would not return"

"A lovely place run by lovely people. The accommodation is all on one level above a tearoom, with just a hedge separating the canal that runs along side.The balcony gives lovely views across the fields and canal and there are so many different birds, including Tawny owls. A ten minute walk along the towpath under the little bridge will bring you to the Navigation pub, or walk another twenty five or so to the Queens Head (ten minutes by car). We ate three times at the Queens Head and the food was very excellent. They serve food 12pm-9pm pretty much every day, so ideal for families like us who aren't great at organising our day.The Navigation pub isn't open an often, but I popped in for a pint on a couple of evenings and found it a friendly place, with many people commenting on how good the food was. Oswestry is close by with about four supermarkets. The Morrisons also has a petrol station.S82994 is run by Iain and Fiona, who are both lovely and real grafters. The coffee, cake, scones etc. were all excellent and all the food was home made I believe.We were able to use one of their canoes for a day which was great fun.We had a great time and hope to be back."

"S84529 was the perfect house in every way. The views are absolutely stunning and the house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garden is fully enclosed once the driveway gates are closed so it was ideal for the 2 wee dogs. The weather was awesome the week we were there in May so we utilised the very comfy reclining outdoor chairs. There’s also a nice wee BBQ. The conservatory is a lovely place to sit and read or just chill out. The showers are awesome, really powerful with endless hot water. Everything about this house is great! For us, as we like to go shopping and explore, the location wasn’t the best. Maryport and Allonby (the nearest towns) don’t have a lot to offer, though Cockermouth is really lovely and worth a visit (we went twice). But if you just want to chill, relax, walk, paint, read or just enjoy chillaxing with family, then this is absolutely the perfect house. The pub is in walking distance, it’s about a mile, and we had really fab food there and although it’s a real ‘local’, the staff were friendly and the sevice and food couldn’t be faulted!"

"Two main aspects : 1) The owners are very friendly and helpful. 2) The cottage is not suitable for elderly people, and this should be clearly stated in your description , e.g. the stairs are not just steep, but extremely steep. The access from the recommended parking is over grotesquely uneven cobbled area, slippery if wet. At the moment the area around the cottage is a building site, as a barn con version is going on immediately adjacent to the cottage. That mean that instead of rural tranquillity the visitors have the noise of heavy machinery all working day long. Why did you not tell us about this ?"
