Holiday Cottages in Colchester

Holiday Cottages in Colchester

Colchester is a beautiful town in Essex, jam-packed with both ancient history and modern attractions. Starting off as a Roman settlement, it is thought to be the oldest town in England and visitors can still see a well-preserved stretch of the original Roman city walls. History buffs can also check out Colchester Castle, which holds the title of largest Norman Keep in Europe. For more modern pursuits, indulge in some retail therapy in the town centre or visit Colchester Zoo with the little ones. 

Whether you're hunting for the perfect romantic mini-break destination or somewhere for the whole family, Colchester is for you. Holiday cottages are the perfect base from which to explore this historic town. 

At Snaptrip, we provide our customers with thousands of different properties across the UK, live availability and backed by our best price guarantee. Perhaps you're looking for a cosy log cabin for two or a spacious apartment to fit a large group of friends? Use our search filters to find your perfect match. You can also use keywords such as 'pet-friendly' to ensure your four-legged friend can join in the adventure.
