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.

Jane - verified booking

"The positives are that the house is big, the fire is fantastic and is very well equipped for large groups, in fact it was probably had some of the largest cooking pans we had ever had in a rented house. It was lovely and warm due to the fire and the main barn are was very sympathetically done and was a great space to eat and socialise. The rooms were comfortable although the beds were simple doubles, a shame as the bedrooms are large and bigger beds would make such a difference. We did have an issue but it was resolved by the Estate manager that day which was vey good. There were a few negatives but nothing that would prevent us from returning. The main issue is the water pressure in the showers which was very poor - everyone had to take it in turns which for a large group was not ideal. Also not every bathroom had a shower and as most people prefer them, bathrooms with them, had to be used my multiple people. The actual design of the house is a little awkward in terms of flow. Due to fact that the cars were generally parked at the back in the courtyard space, when entering the leaving the house the doors into the kitchen were used as the main doors. All the space to keep muddy and in our case, wet boots and jackets however was located by the front door on the other side of the kitchen. A small thing that was just annoying. The sink leaked and the dishwasher stopped working but a plumber was sent out and fixed them on the same day. We did however have a great time despite the weather"

"First the positives; you absolutely can not fault the location and views for this property. A text from the owner about a week before with excellent directions (and even a handy tip about the tour de Yorkshire) was greatly received. On arrival we found lovely welcome gifts of Bubbles and cake in the fridge. Beautifully spacious house with ample room for everyone. Well stocked cupboards of crockery, pots and pans etc left us wanting for nothing. Brilliant outdoor entertaining area (which we made the absolutely most of thanks to the fantastic weather). There aren’t really any negatives but if I was going to make any suggestions to make this a 10 out of 10 property they would be; a new bbq on the patio area would be a fab addition especially when the weather is as fab as we had it, being a pet friendly property (which is awesome) it might be worth securing the patio area to prevent young woofers wandering toward the lane (ultimately it is the responsibility of the doggies owner but it would be great peace of mind), a patio heater or fire pit might be a nice addition for cooler evenings. As I say these are not criticisms at all just observations and we would absolutely be happy to stay here again. (Stayed 5-7th May)"

Peter - verified booking

"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 ?"

Claire - verified booking

"My group thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at S16856, there were just a few issues: there was no hot water or heating in the annex the first morning this was resolved very quickly, we would have found two dishwashers more useful than two washing machines, the bathroom arrangements were a bit of a problem as three had to share the jack and jill bathroom including the person on the mezzanine up the spiral staircase, whilst this is probably ok for family groups for mature adult singletons it is an issue, this would be helped if there was a cloakroom/loo on the ground floor. The mezzanine bedroom is rather inaccessible added to which we could hear rats/mice/squirrels in the rafters! The addition of a shower in the annex bathroom would be useful rather than the shower for the sauna which is rather exposed! We loved the setting and the barn is a beautiful conversation, it suited our requirements and was a great base for our garden visits. I would certainly recommend it to others."

David - verified booking

"The location of the property is excellent for visiting all tourist attractions in North Somerset...nowhere is more than a 30 minute drive (as long as you avoid the M5). The property itself could use an update in the majority of rooms. Only one of the 3 showers works to a standard worth getting wet for. The kitchen was my biggest bugbear. Why have a table which seats 12/14 people when the house can only sleep 8? The table is MASSIVE and takes up far too much of the room. The other issue I had, apart from the general cleanliness of the place (which was pretty abysmal), was the lack of a tumble drier. Personally, and I know that I'm not alone in this, I have not hung clothes out for more years than I care to remember. Fortunately the weather was good but there is no doubt that I didn't use the washing machine as often as I would have normally. The person who looked after the house and we saw more or less every day was very pleasant to deal with."
