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.

                                                            The Coach House

                                                            The cottage is spacious, light and airy, and affordable. Although it can sleep four, it is ideal for two, especially if your stay demands that you work! Access to broadband is instantaneous! Now back in Devon; a quite different story. We lacked for nothing and much enjoyed a glass or two on the patio. Access to central Cambridge is quick and easy - a very pleasant walk to the office every morning. We will definitely stay in the Coach House in the future.

                                                            great place to base yourself

                                                            We had a lovely time and the little touches like bread and milk etc was much appreciated. It does get a tad warm inside so be warned! There is an excellent pub 20 mins walk through the estate so do make the effort to walk there and give them your business. Sue was great to deal with.
