England is a country of great beauty and serenity made up of diverse landscapes, bustling cities and tranquil holiday cottages. Destinations vary from the cobbled street and quaint villages and holiday homes of Dorset, the white washed fishing cottages in Cornwall. Stay amongst the lush green peaks and valleys of the Lakes District. England has more than its fair share of heritage and historical sites, from Stonehenge to Blenheim palace, and every town has its treasures – with Shakespeare’s birthplace of Stratford-on-Avon boarding the pretty English country cottages of the Cotswolds. The North of England is not to be overlooked too – with the magnificent Yorkshire Dales and Moors hiding medieval cities like York and vibrant modern centres such as Leeds.
