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.

Fraser - verified booking

"We were pleased that the owner arranged for our sheets and towels to be washed in non-bio washing powder although with the number of people these days that have allergies I’m surprised that that isn’t the norm.We were, however, very disappointed with several aspects of the property. The microwave is almost impossible to set to a required cooking time as the rotary time control appears to be a random number generator. The turntable of the alternative microwave in the utility area didn't go round and, on full power at least, the heating didn't work. It did however ding at the end of the time period. The dishwasher top drawer stops were non existent so the top drawer fell off the runners and broke some glasses and a plate. Also there was a wheel missing off the bottom drawer making it difficult to slide that in and out when loaded. The total cost of replacement parts is less than £10 so I cannot see why they have not been replaced. One of the fridges had no shelves and no door shelf so that the only way to use it was to stack everything up from the bottom. We found that things that were sitting on the bottom near the back and stacked at the back froze from being in contact with the back creating problems when things like ham and pate were taken out to prepare lunches. Several bulbs in lights and table lamps were not working due to blown bulbs and fuse. Our electrician son sorted that out. Many of the doors have twisted and some of the door ironmongery is worn so that doors don't close properly. Some of these points have been raised in reviews of the property so it is extremely disappointing that nothing has been done to correct them. Other things that are very difficult to cope with are that there is no sound deadening in the floor construction underneath the hardwood floor of the living area so that any early rising dish washer fairy can wake up everyone else in the bedrooms below very easily. There was a strong smell of damp in several of the bedrooms with the small nursery room being the worst.Those were the material things but there were other things that made for a less than enjoyable stay in the first few days. There was a local power cut when we arrived so nothing electrical including the heating was working. This might not have been so bad if a) the building had been heated for the previous week or, considering the conditions, if the heating had been turned on for a couple of days before we arrived, b) if the weather outside had not been very windy and freezing cold and c) if a welcome basket of logs was available to get some heat out of the stove. As it was it took two days or so to get the place anywhere near a comfortable temperature. We also had to use a hairdryer for quite a long period on the first night to take the bitter chill out of our bed before we could contemplate getting into it. It was fortunate for the other members of our party that bad weather prevented them from arriving until the next day. Another thing was the cleanliness of the place. The kitchen cupboard doors were far from clean as was the wall to the right hand side of the cupboards. There were some substantial cobwebs up around some of the roof timbers and the stairs were quite dusty as was underneath the beds. Some of this could be due to the power cut but the general malaise of the place suggests otherwise. It could really do with a deep clean and a makeover or replacement of the defective kitchen equipment to bring it up to the standard suggested in the property description."

"Just returned from a 2 week stay, with friends, at S18538. On arrival we had to wash all the tea mugs before we could use them as they looked as if they hadn't been washed. 2 days in we found out why. The dishwasher was disgusting. We had to totally strip the machine to clean it. The filters were totally clogged that it took 4 attempts to get it clean. We feel that we shouldn't have had to do this while on holiday. 2 days later we tried to use the tumble dryer to dry some clothes but the condenser tank was so full of water that an error message was displayed. On emptying it was clear that it had not been emptied for some time. It can't possibly be right that guests, on holiday, staying at S18538 should be expected to carry out maintenance on the equipment. The bedrooms, being downstairs, were very dark as the windows were so small. We were slightly concerned as to how it would be possible to escape if there was a fire. None of the Windows in the property were big enough for an adult to escape. All bedrooms smelt very musty. Luckily we had good weather and when we were there we were able to open all the doors and windows to allow some airto circulate. The heating in all of the bedrooms was woefully inadequate. As for cleanliness there were, what looked like, dog hairs on the backs of the fabric sofas. Dust was thick underneath all of the seating. We had never seen so many cobwebs. In the lounge area above the leather sofa is a huge cobweb which looked as if it had been there for years. The ceiling was covered in cobwebs. My husband and I slept in the double ensuite where the ceiling was covered in cobwebs. The double room adjoined to the baby room had large stains on the carpet. Many of the kitchen cupboard doors were really dirty. All of the Windows in the property were dirty. No idea when they were last cleaned. Considering the cottage sleeps 8 there are only 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. It was a scramble in the mornings for 8 people to shower with only 2 showers. There was a severe lack of coat hangers. We had to go out and buy some. I tried to call the owners but my calls went to answerphone. No call was returned. Considering the amount of money we paid we were very disappointed. The standard of this property lacked in so many ways. We will never stay there again."

"We had a lovely four day break at S14827. The cottage is ideal for families and is very well equipped. I was disappointed to not have condiments available after all salt and vinegar are essential for a seaside holiday.We did have some issues with the heating and the bathroom light but the Owner was very helpful and responded to our problems in a timely manner. If you are not a confident driver/parker this cottage may not be for you as the parking at the front of the property is not the easiest and the road is narrow. The area/street are lovely and quiet and there is a sea view from the upstairs bedroom. The local amenities were great and you can't beat all day parking on Brid seafront was very cheap, you can even redeem your parking against sessions at the leisure centre. We will definitely be back when more of the tourist attractions open from Easter."

"We stayed 3 days in S90761 Ashmore. It was well beyond our expectations. In the quiet village of ashmore, it was comfortable to our two families, well equipped, with two bathrooms and a large garden were the kids could play. Even the lovely son of the owner came to enforce our soccer team. The beds are very comfortable, there is plenty of hot water for the showers, but most of all Jemma ( the owner) was very responsive to our questions and provided more then basic amenities. towels, toilet paper, cooking spices etc were available more. Tv are smart and wifi good (10 Mbit). We fell in love with ashmore and the cottage, the easy acces to the numerous tracks thru dorset and surroundings and the airfield were it is easy to charter one off their classic planes. We could give Jemma any suggestions for improvement. Hope visiting again"

"Location great, in centre of Cromer with a parking space.This cottage is advertised as and sleeps 6 but is more suutable for 4. The dinung room table can be extended but was broken. There are 2 extra chairs but they have to be brought down from the bedrooms. Our biggest issue was with equipment in the cottage. Light bulbs not working and no spares available. Dishwasher obviously hadn't been working properly for some time so the crockery we went to use was dirty! The fridge is very tiny. The frying pan was rusty and unusable. There was one tea towel to use for a whole week! There are no wardrobes. There was a coat peg system in main bedroom but not ideal.We enjoyed the location but feel that this cottage was overly priced and we feel very disappointed. We felt that the cottage was unloved."
