Holiday Cottages in England

An unforgettable holiday is an unforgettable experience. Don’t take the natural beauty, history and character of your native country for granted – get out there and explore it! Choosing England holiday cottages gives you the chance to do just that, with accommodation that’s bursting with character. From those cosy little hideaways that are evocative of simpler times, to spacious modern properties that boast their own heated swimming pools and hot tubs – with hundreds of holiday cottages in England there’s literally something for everyone.

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. England holiday cottages offer an authentic self-catered experience, giving you and the family the freedom to enjoy your time off in exactly the way you choose, and with many pet-friendly options available your beloved pet can even accompany you on the adventure.

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.

Cheryl - verified booking

"S80664 was spotlessly clean. Couldn’t find fault with that aspect at all. We loved the cows directly behind the house on the farm & it was lovely to wake up to cows mooing and cockerels crowing, so totally different to home. There are no amenities in the village, except the pub, so you have to travel to nearby Martham for any shops etc. We felt that the kitchen wasn’t equipped enough for the maximum number of people,with only 4 side plates, dinner plates, bowls, mugs, glasses etc & only two saucepans, one frying pan & one glass ovenproof dish. You couldn’t easily cook a meal there if you were staying for a while. We were only there for breakfast, as we went out to eat the rest of the time, so it didn’t matter too much. In addition the double bed was really hard and uncomfortable, although for somebody else it may be fine, but there were no spare pillows or blankets should you need them. One of the biggest drawbacks is the parking & getting up and down the narrow lane to the property, especially as you have to reverse the length of the road in order to get the car parked on the hard standing directly in front of the property. If you had a big car or one that is very long you would struggle."

"I have stayed at this cottage on a number of occasions over the last 3/4 years. It is a fantastic place, ideally located for a relaxing break. However, it is in need of some ongoing maintenance. In the front bedroom/ bathroom alone the following needs attention - the shelf above the sink is falling off, the light fitting above the sink has a bulb cover missing, the toilet roll holder/ towel holder both require fixing back to the wall. the shelf in the bedroom itself is leaning down at a precarious angle. In the kitchen there was a ceiling light out and the magnetic knife holder is loose. In the main seating area the front cover of a double electic socket was loose, It could also do with a review of the crockery (some of it is chipped) and although knives, forks etc are plenfiful some other kitchen equipment ie, weighing scales, potato masher etc would be useful and other things like the large frying pan need replacing altogether as you can't get it clean. I appreciate that these are all minor things but sorted out the accommodation I feel would definitely be worthy of a higher rating"

"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."

"Lovely clean cottage, bright and cheerful. For people interested in self catering, the kitchen has a large fridge and cooker but only very basic equipment. Lack of a frying pan meant no full englishfor the other half. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept well, although the sofa in the living room left a bit to be desired, watching T.V. and relaxing in the evening was uncomfortable. As advertised, there were walks from the cottage door, lovely for dog walkers, also there were dog towels supplied for anyone who had forgotten their own.This cottage is an ideal base for those who want to go out and explore all the time. However, parking can be awkward for the larger car owner, but we managed. Another thing that we found was that, at times, the heavy farm machinery in the farmyard behind the cottage became obtrusive, especially as the windows and doors were open in the hot weather ."

DOROTHY - verified booking

"This was an excellent place to stay. Local amenities were brilliant, with the local pub about 100 yards from the front door where excellent food was served every day. Add to that a local brewery, cafes that served great food making it an ideal stay. The amenities in the cottage were great and the cleanliness first class. The only reason we have rated 9 for the first question is that the storage of clothes in the bedrooms is poor, however, having said that I'm not sure how that could be rectified as the space has been taken up providing 9th rooms with shower and toilet facilities which was really good. Access to Windemere was close within 8 miles an travelling around was easy. This was a great stay and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the South Lakes"
