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.

Emily - verified booking

"I seldom review holiday accommodation, however I feel impelled to do so with S14792 for several reasons. I include both positive and negative points in my review. Overall, I feel S14792 is over-priced for what is offered and that the emphasis on comfort is somewhat overplayed, and I do not deem it to be 'romantic' as advertised in some locations online. For this price range, I expect more in terms of the decor, the quality of the fixtures and fittings, as well as a more effective heating system and the presence of a small welcome such as a pint of local milk or loaf of local bread. The wood burner is simply not enough to heat both the main room and the water during winter. I would also illustrate that I am happy to put on layers and heat my own home in an environmentally conscious way, but given the price and that I was on a much-needed break, a more effective or indeed efficient heating system should be present. I hold the view that being environmentally friendly need not compromise ones comfort, but at S14792 this is the case. At this price point, I would simply not recommend this accommodation to friends or family, as you will have a more comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay elsewhere. Positive points include that the property is less than an hours drive from Newcastle upon Tyne, there is a co-op supermarket within walking distance and a good local pub which serves a very good Sunday lunch. Up to two dogs are allowed in the accommodation and the owner can provide additional sheets or blankets for furniture. Furthermore, the owners of the property are knowledgeable about the local area."

"A superb, well-maintained property in a quiet location and we couldn't fault it. Included was the best welcome pack we have ever received, including milk, refreshing non-alcoholic drink, biscuits, strawberries and cream and a box of chocolates!One big advantage is that the owners live nearby and are very helpful and friendly, calling in to check that all is OK both on arrival and departure, though we had no issues.The ample parking space adjacent the property was very welcome.It is a lovely quiet area, the only noise being from the sheep in the field behind.There is shop nearby but few other local amenities; however, Hornsea is 10 minutes' drive away and has shops, a retail outlet and a Tesco superstore so shopping is no problem. Sadly the local beaches now have limited access due to coastal erosion, but there are several towns nearby with sea fronts such as Hornsea, Bridlington and Scarborough. The Yorkshire Moors with Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the North Yorks Railway are all within easy reach.The weather was warm when we stayed but I would guess that the cottage would be warm in winter as well as it boasts oil-fired central heating, double glazing and a wood-burning stove.We stayed 4 nights and are already booked to go again in September for 7 nights. I wouldn't mind the odd chilly evening as I want an excuse to light the stove!"

"We have spent many holidays in Rothbury, using it as a base to stock up on provisions and choosing to travel by car to explore the vast county of Northumbria.S80461 was an ideal location, being just on the outskirts of Rothbury, high on a hill with uninterrupted views of breathtaking countryside.It is set away from the farm itself and so is not overlooked.Janice is a welcoming host. She left us milk, tea, coffee and cake so that we were able to chill before starting our unpacking. She visited to welcome us and came to say goodbye at the end of our stay.The cottage itself exceeded our expectation. It was spotlessly clean, furnished to a high standard with new appliances and all the equipment we required.During our week we visited various parts of Hadrians Wall, a number of castles including Dunstanburgh, and Warkworth Castle and Hermitage, Brinkburn Priory down the road from the cottage, and Howick Hall. We also visited the harbour at Amble, and the beach at Durridge Bay.We ate out too and there are lots of lovely coffee shops, restaurants and pubs around. We particularly liked the Three Wheat Heads at Thopton and the tea room at Howick Hall."

"Palm Leas is a very comfortable annex to The Leas. It is very well presented to a high standard and has all necessary facilities for a very comfy stay whatever the weather. The beds are very comfortable and it is in a quiet location at the end of a private road, so a good nights sleep is assured. It has exceptional views from the lounge patio doors over the Bristol Channel and there are palm trees in view in the garden. We received a welcoming call from the owner to ensure everything was satisfactory, which was very much appreciated. We were not familiar with this side of Ilfracombe but we found it to be very close to the local beach and a short 10 min walk to the harbour and the centre of town down a pleasant coast road. The road gives a good view of Damien Hirst's Statue Verity installed at the harbour mouth. Also close is the Hillsborough hill which gives very good views over Ilfracombe. Can certainly recommend this property."

"Have just got back from a wonderful weekend There was a party of 10 & two dogs. Everything we could of hoped for plenty of comfy seating in lounge, large kitchen with lots of cutlery pots pans etc. Beds were lovely I think we all slept really well over the weekend 😊. Fantastic large backgarden plenty outdoor games supplied excellent verandah with plenty of comfy chairs. Enough towels supplied for everyone & even doggy towels which was a god send as we had forgotten ours! Two large ensuite bathrooms a downstairs toilet & another bathroom on 1st floor. Heating worked great & logs were supplied for log burner. Took a trip out to Wells-next-the-Sea beautiful fishing village & a very impressive beach with a lovely beach cafe. Thank you S17632 for making our yearly family gathering a fantastic one ❤️ x"
