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.

carol - verified booking

"the location of this cottage is quite superb. the most stunning views over open countryside from the lounge, bedrooms and conservatory. We arrived just before the snow and had two days wondering the local roads with our dog. Very reminiscent of where we used to live in Hereford but here within a short walking distance glorious panoramic views of the sea at Sandsend. The weather went from snow to beautiful spring so we were also able to take short cuts on the many footpaths and through the beautiful Mulgrave Estate. We were able to walk to Whitby along the beach and shortened our route by parking for free in the nearby village of Lythe, From there it is a walk down a steep hill into Sandsend but well worth doing that because the view is fabulous. You do have to climb the steep hill back otherwise there is plenty of parking in Sandsend. The conservatory is heated so we sat in there having afternoon tea watching pheasants and deer right across the valley. A great bonus. Be aware there are no shops within walking distance so you do have to drive to the community shop at Lythe (2 minutes) even to get milk. The house is very spacious and very homely. It is not like some of the show home holiday cottages we have rented in Cornwall but there is everything you need. Television is quite restricted and no Wifi but our phone reception was very good. Like other reviewers we couldn't get the DVD to work but we think this was a problem with the lead connection and we left a message for the owners.The shed with the table tennis was very handy for cleaning up our dog after some very muddy walks. There is a sink and cold water tap in that shed but it is cold in there when the weather is bad.We holiday all across England with our dog and I have to say Whitby and Robin Hood Bay have to be the prettiest seaside resorts I have seen. They are clean and well cared for and a vast improvement on what they were like when I visited 20 years ago. We found a wonderful cafe in Whitby by the Captain Cook museum with really friendly staff and very welcoming to dogs. In fact I think it was a cafe for dogs who were allowed to take their owners in. Very nice coffee and cakes. There is a superb walk along a disused railway line from Ravenscar to Robin hood bay and you can go back along Cleveland way. We didn't get much walking done on the Yorkshire moors because it was extremely boggy from many days of rain in February but we shall certainly go back later in the season to do more walking.The beach at Sandsend and Whitby and Runswick bay, all very close to this cottage ,are the equal of Cornwall. This is a very dog friendly area and very much overlooked as an holiday destination and S15578 is great."

"Our second stay at S15578 which was as good as the first. It is an excellent, peaceful and private cottage in lovely surroundings. The garden was beautiful with autumn just arriving and the views are great. It was a bit chilly at night but the very efficient heating soon saw to that. The only minor downsides we can think of is the distance from where you park your car to the house and it is up quite a steep incline, which could be an issue for people with limited mobility. Having said that, you could park outside the front of the house to drop people and stuff off but the path is still a little steep though not too bad. There is no Wi-Fi but a there is good 4G signal. The welcome pack was minimal compared to other cottages we've stayed at but it's not a deal breaker. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and there are nearby walks to enjoy. Whitby is less than 15 minutes drive away and on the way in a stop at Sandsend is recommended. Other nearby local attractions are Runswick Bay, (check tide times first as when it comes in it's in!), and Scaling Reservoir. A bit further away is the village of Goathland, of course famous for being Heartbeat's filming location, and the North Yorkshire Moors. We will definitely be back again."

"It's hard to say what the best thing about Bowden is: braving the wind to stand on the private beach at midnight on Christmas Eve; cooking Christmas dinner with red squirrels feeding outside the window; sitting in the conservatory watching the sky get dark across the beautiful grounds; running your hands over the banisters, lovingly restored with 24 coats of varnish; chatting to Peter the owner over coffee; piling into the living room with wine, cake and board games... The house is historic, majestic, magical and beautifully crafted, with space for a large extended family group to eat together and play together, or to spread out over several rooms for a variety of activities. A minor drawback is the disparity between the sweeping grandeur of the first floor and the servants quarters on the second floor: bedroom and bathroom arrangements need some negotiation to keep all group members happy! It was a privilege to be the first guests for Christmas 2017 and to feel that we honoured Peter's vision of bringing his beloved family home back to life for a new chapter in the house's history."

"S15578 is just amazing. The view is incredible, with being on a hill the house overlooks beautiful open countryside and livestock. I have never witnessed so many varieties of birds and being May they were nesting in the bushes outside the windows.The house was clean and comfortable,with all the necessary equipment. Retaining its homely feel. The welcome basket was the very best we have ever had and we really enjoyed the good quality treats. The garage outside which has been converted into a games room,with a full size table tennis table provided us with lots of fun.The only detail you will need to be aware of is it is a bit of a steep garden to get suitcases into the property. It would be an idea to pack 2 small suitcases instead of 1 large one. However I would still give it 10/10. We look forward to booking S15578 when we return to Yorkshire in the future,and would recommend to friends and family.Thank you"

"the owners were very friendly and helpful,the location was brilliant for cycling and visiting norfolk and suffolk. but there is a line dividing rustic from run down, and this crossed it. no proper kitchen cupboards, shower just needed a screen instead of a plastic curtain. the bedroom patio doors were unusable as the patio was decaying and plant growth overgrowing the doors. nothing provided for the log burner, had to ask-" you wont need it "!- well that is my decision, and it did go cold at night. no information in the handbook about nearest doctor/dentist/hospital/how anything worked. archaic water boilers for the kitchen and bathroom, just needed to be on a timer. overall comment- it needed a bit of finishing work and some essential modifications, it just wasnt comfortable. we were glad the weather was good so we were outside most of the time. dont even mention spiders!!!!, but thats normal for norfolk."
