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.

Sally - verified booking

"We have just returned from a week's stay at Colleton Hall with an extended family group of 10 people ranging in ages from 7 to 87 and we had the most AMAZING time! We have taken an annual family holiday together in various different locations but always in large houses for the last 15 years and Colleton Hall is without doubt the most spectacular property we have ever stayed in. The house is beautiful - enormous and grand but also cosy and really comfortable. It has been beautifully renovated and the owners have thought of everything - a really well stocked kitchen, pool and table football for the kids, board games for the older generations, sonos throughout the house and a baby grand piano for the musically minded, televisions in every room, beautiful en suite bathrooms - the list goes on! And the grounds are simply stunning - a huge expansive garden which our children adored, a lake with a two man canoe which provided hours of fun and private woodlands which seemed to go on and on - this is the English countryside at its absolute best! The owners are delightful and so so helpful - from booking the (WONDERFUL) local pub (the Stag Inn) for us for a couple of meals during our stay, to unpacking an online supermarket shop, welcoming us with prosecco and chocolates and providing tons of really helpful information about the local area, Russell and Richard couldn't have done more to ensure that we had a great stay. There is tons to do in the local area - you're spoilt for choice for beaches within an hour - we had a great day out at Woolacombe beach and loved Knightshayes National Trust house and garden - a fascinating gothic property with glorious grounds with a brilliant maze trail for the children. We also did a circular walk at Tarr Steps - a spectacular nature reserve with an ancient stone bridge in Exmoor - only half an hour away. I cannot recommend this place enough - we will definitely be back! Thank you Russell and Richard for a wonderful holiday."

"We recently spent a long weekend at Colleton Hall. There were 14 in our party ranging from ages 1 to 92 and everyone had a superb time. The accommodation is both elegant and functional. It has all the sophistication of a large Georgian residence with a sweeping staircase and generous room sizes ,but it has been so tastefully renovated that in terms of modern conveniences you could be renting an up market ultra modern house. Unusually for a holiday rental property, no expense has been spared in the renovations. Everything is in good taste, from the tiles throughout the ground floor, to the fittings in the bathrooms and all three kitchens. My 25 year old nephew said having a bath in the main bathroom overlooking the grounds will be a memory that will stay with him for a long time. The rooms are complemented by the carefully chosen art, many beautiful objects and vases of fresh flowers. And then there are the grounds. All I can say is wow. The lake is magical. The young members of the party, as well as taking the canoe out, had a swim in the lake. We took the opportunity of walking through the woods that are also owned by Colleton and just loved the peace and tranquility. Finally, being greeted by the owners of Colleton, Russell and Richard, in such a warm way set the weekend off to a great start. The fact they left the fridges stocked with beers (which I am sure the youngsters in the party used) as well as top class champagne (which we ensured was not touched) shows just how far they will go to try and give their guests a first class experience. We used the chef from DineIndulge for the meal on the Saturday evening and, this too, was a success. I would definitely recommend Colleton to anyone wanting a large, beautiful and sophisticated house in a rural setting. The consensus was that it was the best standard we have ever rented."

"From the moment we stepped through the doors at Colleton Hall, we knew we were very lucky to be staying somewhere so special. It was late autumn and log fires crackled in the huge fireplaces in the large, beautifully-fitted kitchen and the spacious drawing room, making the first impression one of warmth and welcome. The owners, who, surprisingly are not interior designers, have lovingly restored this gem of a small, 'stately home' with incredible flair and attention to authentic detail, whilst including the modern time-saving luxuries we all don't want to live without when on holiday. Each of the six tastefully-decorated bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom with high-end fittings and a hot water system that ensures no one goes without a decent shower! Outside, there is plenty of parking in the gravel driveway. Beyond the house, a terrace gives way to the gardens which reach down to a lake and out to woods and fields - ideal settings for barbecues, walks and picnics. This is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday - or long weekend - away from the fast pace of city life, but close enough to a good pub, restaurant and amenities - if you can bear to drag yourselves away from the beauty and comfort of the Hall. We loved it so much, we've already booked to go back with our family this Summer."

"I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Colleton Hall, a beautiful house which felt like a luxury hotel. In the bedrooms and bathrooms, the attention to detail and care was so clear, they were a delight. The kitchen, dining areas and sitting room were perfect for all our different needs and moods. The large kitchen and pantry were ideal for our group and made cooking and eating together a real joy. In the library there was the joy of a fascinating range of books that could have kept us busy for the whole visit. Around the house we all commented on the artwork, again a fascinating range of styles and artists. The Sonos system in every room was such a bonus, everyone downloaded the app and we had music on tap to meet every taste, which was deeply appreciated by the younger members of our group. The extensive grounds, fields and the woods were ideal for our two dogs, who had a ball as between us we spent hours throwing balls and sticks. The lake and the canoe were well used, an activity which did become a bit competitive for younger members of our group! We were lucky to meet our hosts Russell and Richard, they could not have made us any more welcome. Overall, a fabulous house in a wonderful setting, thank you for helping us discover it."

"We had a perfect time at this lovely house set in rolling countryside. We partied with our friends and family at New Year and I can honestly say that it was one of the best times, such a warm friendly house with charming rooms, plenty of bathrooms, super kitchen(s) and views of the lake and the fields beyond. There are plenty of country walks nearby, ideal for us and all our dogs, we had 5 dogs with us in total and because of the sheer size of the place it really was no problem at all to accommodate us all with our all boots, clothes and belongings. The owners of the property are very genial and welcoming and were on hand next door in case of any issues and for guidance of where to go, they recommended a marvellous little pub in the village nearby. Would definitely recommend for a family get together."
