Enchanting stays in England

From the surf-washed beaches of the Cornish coast to the old mill towns of the North, the wild fells of the Peak District to the hip hubs of the Big Smoke, the land of Old Blighty is peppered with more enchanting England holiday rentals than you can shake a bag of vinegar-doused chips at. There are cosy little boltholes sitting snug on the Yorkshire Moors. There are country cottages with crackling fireplaces between Sussex and Shropshire. There are uber-swish penthouses in the City and elegant Victorian mansions dotting royal cities like Bath and Windsor. What will you choose?

Escaping the cities in England

An authentic glimpse of England requires an escape from the city. Leave the urban playgrounds of London or Manchester and roll out to see the sleeping giants that are the Pennines, to trace tales of opium-eating Romantic poets in mountain towns or wander ruined Roman settlements from millennia gone by. As you're getting to grips with the sceptre of the nation's long past, you're also bound to discover the adventure that awaits. England holiday rentals along the coast mean surfing lessons and seafood cooking like you've never tasted. Others mean fell running or challenging feats like the Three Peak Challenge.

Castles, kings and Harry Potter in England

Albion is steeped in history and myth. Sights like the inexplicable Stonehenge stand naked on the landscape – a ghostly reminder of the ancients who roamed the plains of Salisbury some 5,000 years past. Muscular castles like Bamburgh, Windsor and Warwick are haunting Gothic silhouettes that herald another age of invasions and war. Even England holiday rentals in London have a medley of bucket-list draws right on the doorstep, whether that's Big Ben, the mummies of the British Museum or the studios where one Harry Potter was brought to life.

England – it's not all rain and cold

Just one glimpse of an English country pub in the height of summer should be enough to show that the people of Blighty know how to make the most of the little good weather that passes their way. If you're eager to enjoy warm days for walking and beachcombing, it's probably best to book your England holiday rentals for months like June, July and August. Before and after that is when things can get wet and chilly. Winter breaks, in December and January, are perfect if you want to see another, wilder side to the country.

England from fells to ferocious seas

England's North is largely mountainous, soaring with Scafell Pike and rolling down to the undulating York Moors. The south is flatter and sculpted, peppered with quaint farmhouses and endless swathes of green fields. Real treats include the UNESCO Lake District, a land of waters and summits and rare eagles. Closer to London are the rugged cliffs of Cornwall, the chalk cliffs of Dover, wide beaches of yellow sand and reserves like the Jurassic Coast – keep your eyes peeled for fossils there.
