Cottages in England and Holiday Homes by Holiday Lettings

Why England?

England’s fascinating history and heritage is nothing short of mindblowing. From Stonehenge to Shakespeare, the wild Yorkshire Moors to London’s West End, there’s so much love about this endlessly enchanting country.

Iconic & Inspirational

Home to some of the world’s most impressive landmarks such as Hadrian's Wall and the Houses of Parliament, England is packed with inspiring sights. For starters, you can explore ancient castles, such as Dover Castle overlooking the white cliffs, or the Tower of London on the banks of the River Thames. Admire artworks at world-famous galleries including London’s National Gallery and Birmingham’s Museum & Art Gallery. And those in pursuit of history should head to one of England’s many remarkable museums, from the Jorvik Viking Centre in York to the Ashmolean in Oxford.

Scenic Beauty

Some of the best beaches in the world can be found along England’s coastline, including the fossil-studded Jurassic Coast and the Norfolk Coast - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To see some of the prettiest countryside in England, stay in the Cotswolds with its tapestry of chocolate-box villages. For breathtakingly beautiful views, the Peak and Lake District are must-sees. And for fields as far as the eye can see, navigate your way through the marshy fens of Lincolnshire.

Legends Of Literature

England’s rich history and landscape is the stuff of legends. When you come face-to-face with the Major Oak in Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Forest, you’ll see just how it captures the imagination. Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, with its links to King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, is simply magical. And when you see Oxford’s university buildings, it’s like Hogwarts has landed in the Muggle world. With hundreds of cottages and holiday homes in England just waiting to be booked, what are you waiting for?

Places to visit in England


Awash with medieval towns, moorland national parks and sandy shores, exploring the great outdoors is a must in Devon. Book a romantic bolthole in Dartmoor and go stargazing, or find a family-friendly rental near the Jurassic Coast. Wherever you choose, a holiday in Devon is as delightful as warm scones and tea (cream on first!).

Yorkshire Dales National Park

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is jaw-droppingly beautiful and needs to be seen to be believed. With its rich cultural heritage, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and protected forests, you’ll want to make plenty of time to simply stand and stare. If you can drag yourself away from the scenery, there are castles to explore, pubs to cosy up in and a very warm welcome to be had.


With its mild climate, beautiful beaches and seafood to salivate over, it’s no surprise that Cornwall is a top choice for visitors to England. From the futuristic domes of the Eden Project to the picturesque fishing villages of Boscastle and Mousehole, every corner of this county is a delight. And let’s not forget about those mouthwatering Cornish pasties...


This historical capital city is one of the most exciting, culturally significant and diverse places in the world. You can’t move for iconic sights: Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey to name but a few! Foodies and shoppers will be spoilt for choice with the likes of Harrods, Camden Market and Portobello Road at hand, and London’s (free!) galleries are a mecca for art-lovers.
