Cottages and Holiday Homes in England

Why England?

From the wild and windy Yorkshire Moors to the city sights of London and the beautiful Cornish coast, the number of places to visit and explore is endless. England's fascinating history and heritage is mindblowing and the cuisine, castles, stately homes and state-of-the-art attractions will surprise and amaze in equal measure.

So, whether you're looking for a cosy cottage in the Cotswolds or an elegant self-catering home in Brighton, there are plenty of holiday homes in England to choose from.

The North

If you like stunning scenery, then the National Parks of the North are sure to get your pulse racing. Highlights include the breathtaking views over Lake Windermere in the Lake District and the quaint villages and stately homes of the Peak District. The peace and tranquility of Northumberland's National Park is perfect for sitting back and taking time to think, while chugging along on a steam train through the North York Moors is a fantastic day out that the whole family will love.

City life in the North is creative, inspiring and diverse. Visit Liverpool to discover the musical roots of The Beatles, and the Merseyside Maritime Museum to discover the city's connection to the sea. In Manchester, watch a show at the spectacular Royal Exchange Theatre or maybe spend the day admiring the exhibits at The Manchester Museum. In Northumberland, go underground and explore the atmospheric Victoria Tunnels or stay on the surface and get a photo of yourself by the impressive Millennium Bridge.

The Midlands

Legends, fairytales, castles and great authors are the order of the day in the Midlands. Head to Sherwood Forest in Nottingham and imagine Robin Hood and his band of merry men riding through the glen. You'll find an abundance of stately homes and castles in Warwickshire, from the hauntingly beautiful ruins of Kenilworth Castle to the grand and gorgeous Charlecote Park.

If you love Shakespeare, then a visit to the bard's home in Stratford-Upon-Avon is a must, as is enjoying a theatre performance of one of his plays at the RSC. To find out about the Midlands' industrial roots, spend the day at the Black Country Living Museum to see what life would have been like for the working class in the 1830s.

The South

If you're looking for a beach holiday, the south coast's mild climate and sandy beaches are a great choice. Try some exceptional seafood in Padstow or enjoy a cream tea in Salcombe. On the east side of the coast, indulge in some fresh oysters in Whitstable or explore Kent, known as ‘the Garden of England'.

The South has many diverse and exciting cities to visit. Planning an atmospheric Christmas visit? Enjoy some warm mulled wine at Bath Christmas market. Heading to the capital? London's awe-inspiring museums and West End musicals are not to be missed. If you prefer a slower pace, head to iconic Brighton pier for a seaside stroll or go punting through the idyllic Cotswold countryside.
