Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in the East of England your home away from home

The East of England comprises the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Lincolnshire, one of nine official region of England. Not only is the East of England a vital gateway to Northern Europe, it is a beautiful region of coastal towns, broad beaches, unspoilt natural landscapes, rich heritage and a charming, unique character.

Things to do on holiday in the East of England

The East of England offers a magnificent portion of rural England, which lends itself perfectly to a range of outdoor pursuits. Mountain biking, horse riding and walking, both short strolls after a pub lunch and long full day treks, are hugely popular activities to enjoy from a holiday cottage in the East of England. Despite their popularity, walking cycling and riding holidays never put you amongst the crowds, meaning that the endless peace available can be enjoyed to the full.

East England also offers not only 250 miles of coastal waters, but also huge tracts of inland water, like the Norfolk Broads or Nene Park in Cambridgeshire, meaning that those wishing to experiment or learn any water sport will be in their personal nirvana. Sailing is a huge attraction to the East of England, and there are many holiday cottages and rental accommodation in East England situated perfectly to take full advantage of the sailing facilities. Rowing, canoeing, water skiing, powerboat driving, wind surfing, white water canoe slalom (Bedford), jet skiing and surfing are just a few of the water sports available from self catering accommodation in the East of England, and I have not even mentioned the beaches!

Each of the counties in the East of England is adorned with fine golf courses, so there area plenty of rounds to be had, although tuition, practice ranges and special golf holidays are also easy to organise.

The East of England is hugely rich in heritage, and whether you are interested in the long aviation heritage, maritime heritage, religious heritage or rich wildlife from your holiday cottage, the East of England will certainly not disappoint.

Absolutely beautiful cottage

5 of 5
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, everything was perfect, it was spotless on our arrival with all the things you could possibly need, from a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival for that much needed cup of tea to the 3D tv with DVD and blueray films for our enjoyment, my daughter discovered a love of chess which was among the many board games provided, everything about the cottage is perfect, the Village of Northwold in which the cottage is situated is only minutes from Thetford Forest which affords some wonderful walks, if you like jet planes RAF Lakenheath is just a short drive where you can watch fighter jets take off and land, truly breathtaking. My family can't wait to return in the future.

Perfect long weekend

5 of 5
The place is perfect in a beautiful location. The property was ideal and had a lovely open dining kitchen area for us to socialise in. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and the beds were so comfy! Sally was the perfect host and very welcoming.
