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.

Louisa - verified booking

"The house is well located and spotlessly clean. The owner was helpful and very attentive both before our arrival and throughout the stay. The linens were good quality which added a bit of luxury to the property. However I would need to question the overall tag of "luxury " which is attributed to the house. The kitchen/dining area was good although a larger freezer for 12 people would have been more welcome particularly as there is definitely space for one.Our biggest problem was with the lounges. The front lounge was comfortable, but the fact that the wood burner did not work in here was very disappointing. It is a bright room which we could have made more use of if it could have been made more cosy. The TV lounge sofas were uncomfortable and one was so difficult to relax on - very firm and we kept sliding down . Added to this there was a huge tear in one of the arms which was covered by a throw. Many of the cushions were spilling out of the covers, which certainly did not live up to the boast of "luxury" accommodation. This room had more of a residential home feel about it, with the random mix of chairs and sofas. The double bedroom on the second floor had rusty stains on the wall which was unsightly. Overall the house seemed tired with all the dark old furniture. I understand that it is a period property but to claim that it is one of the best places we have stayed would be untrue. Sadly we would not return as there are better properties available in the same price range."

"S18629 is a wonderful place to spend a holiday. We were there at Christmas 2018. The house itself is old and beautifully restored. It's spacious and comfortably accommodated our family of six. Dave and Angie are fantastic hosts. They had decorated the house with a huge tree and lots of festive touches, and left us a thoughtful and delicious gift. They also helped us by providing some extra kitchen equipment when we wanted to bake and even called us up quickly when we left some items behind. In terms of the accommodation, there are four bedrooms. Two are doubles, one is a twin and one is a single. The single has a TV. There are two bathrooms, one serving the bigger double and one serving the other double, the twin and the single. The kitchen is well equipped, although the oven has slight idiosyncrasies which we had to work around. The best room though is the living room which has big comfy sofas and armchairs and a large wood burner. We enjoyed cosy evenings there, but there is also a patio directly outside the living room which would be fantastic in the summer. There are bird feeders out on the patio and there was a constant stream of birds making the most of the food. All in all we would highly recommend this holiday home and would like to return for another visit in the future. Thank you Dave and Angie."

"We had a lovely new year at S18279. 3 out of the 4 bedrooms are plenty large enough for travel cots and the beds were comfortable. The best area is the kitchen diner, very modern and plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 babies at the table. there's plenty of crockery, pots and pans and utensils. A very well stocked kitchen however only one oven shelf made it very difficult to cook for everyone so the owners could perhaps invest in another shelf to make this a lot easier for large groups to cook meals to enjoy at the cottage. It was great to have the utility area and downstairs toilet plus extra shower. The area was lovely. Very quiet, few nice pubs, cafes and shops. The living room was cosy and nice garden and balconies for use in better weather. The sofas are probably past their shelf life but other than that a nice space. There's a small unloading area outside the cottage but then you have to park your car in the town free car park. Not a major issue unless everyone arrives at once but something to mention as it's not on the spec. All in all we had a lovely time thank you."

"We were a party of 3 families with a total of 11 aged from 13yrs to pensioners, we were there to celebrate my daughters significant birthday (the one where life is said to begin) as a surprise gift for her and she was delighted with the house and deemed it 'perfect'. Hazel Grove is a beautiful old Georgian house with all the comforts of home - the house is large enough for everyone to have their own space, the beds were all very comfortable -and all bedrooms are ensuite so no queues for bathrooms or loos. The teenage boys loved the attic space to connect their games to the TV; the quiet lounge was great for all to get together and chat with a glass of wine, the main TV was only watched by the men for the footy! The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the Aga range - perfect for a slow cooked roast. The welcome buns were a nice touch too. The only minor issue for us was a failure in the heating on our last night but it was put right as quickly as possible. All in all we loved it and would return."

"The cottage is in a perfect position, close to the beach and the high street, yet far enough back to be quiet.The cottage is beautifully decorated, yet I fear there is a degree of style over substance. The red sofa in the dining room is very uncomfortable and hence we never sat on it after the first go. The chairs in the living room are equally not the most comfortable.The lack of a dishwasher is a real shame, especially if you come with children (which the cottage is otherwise well set up for). I know space is tight but as someone who stays in many cottages this is a real down side.The drainage needs sorting. The fact that the green waste floods the path and then street is embarrassing and unpleasant to walk in."
