English country cottages

As you explore this delightful country, from the quaint villages of the Cotswolds to seaside resorts like Brighton, and the historic learning centres of Cambridge and Oxford to ancient Roman settlements such as Bath, you will find enchantment everywhere. That is why we have done all we can to provide you with the best England holiday rentals we can, to ensure your stay is perfect!

London Holiday Rentals

With a holiday rental in London, visitors will be ideally situated to enjoy this fascinating city. Highlights include viewing the crown jewels at the Tower of London, touring the city on a red double-decker bus, shopping at Harrods or Portobello Market, visiting the British Museum, taking a cruise down the Thames, listening to debates at the Houses of Parliament and attending the theatre. Other major attractions for those staying in London include St. Paul's Cathedral, the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of London.

Cornwall Cottages

The Cornish Coast, in the south-west of England, is popular with artists as well as holidaymakers. In Penzance, you can walk to St. Michael's Mount at low tide or take the ferry at high tide; the view from the top of this Benedictine monastery is superb. St. Ives boasts wonderful beaches, including the golden sand and calm waters at Portminster Beach along with some of the best ice-cream in the UK. Newquay is also known as the surfing capital of the region, with great waves at Fistral Beach and if you’re looking for something a little calmer, then Glaze Beach may be more to your liking.

Devon Holiday Rentals

In Devon, you can enjoy the diverse coastline, from white pebble beaches to golden sand to rugged cliffs, or explore the wild moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Beaches range from the surfing beaches of north Devon, such as Saunton and Croyde, to the more sheltered southern resorts of Torbay and Paignton. Visitor activities include golf, fishing, surfing, sailing, sea kayaking, diving and kiteboarding.

Lake District Cottages

In England's pristine Lake District, the northern lakes, including Derwentwater, Ullwater and Buttermere, tend to be less crowded. Activities include hiking, swimming, golf, theatre, lake cruises and mini-bus tours of the area. The town of Keswick is filled with Victorian buildings housing gift shops, tea-rooms and pubs. Daily guided walks are offered from Keswick and plenty of other places in the locality.

Cottages in the East of England

The beautiful countryside in the east of England ranges from coastline to marshland to heathland. Guests of English holiday rentals can walk or cycle through the countryside, golf on challenging courses, and visit charming towns and fabulous gardens.

Cotswold Cottages

In the Heart of England, the Cotswolds is a popular holiday destination and a great place to book your holiday rental in England, with beautiful countryside and charming villages built from yellow limestone. Guests of England holiday rentals can tour the area by car, foot, bicycle or bus, stopping in picturesque towns such as Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Brighton Holiday Apartments

In Brighton, one of England's most popular seaside resorts, you can tour the extravagant Royal Pavilion, stroll along the Victorian Pier and the beachfront, and enjoy a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, shopping, and entertainment.

Holiday Cottages in South East England

In the south-east, Kent boasts miles of sandy beaches, as well as the spectacular cathedral and other attractions in Canterbury and the white cliffs of Dover further to the south. In the south of England, Dorset offers a number of coastal towns, including Bournemouth, with its seven miles of golden beaches and beautiful parks and gardens.

Oxford Holiday Cottages

In Oxford, guests of England holiday rentals can stroll the historic streets of this famous university town. In nearby Woodstock, Blenheim Palace, the residence of the Duke of Marlborough and the largest house in England, is a must-see. Whatever your interests, you're sure to find the perfect holiday rental for a memorable holiday in England. Reserve your England holiday rental home today!

A good base to relax and ,explore surrounding areas . We were greeted with a much appreciated welcome pack from Jenny on our arrival. We would certainly return again and,look forward to doing so hopefully in the New Year.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the cottage was fantastic. Amazing views from the front of the property and great location with plenty of places to eat and pubs within short driving distance.Also close to Monmouth being only a few miles away. Cottage was cosy and very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. Only negative,not that it's much of one but found didn't really cater for families with babies or small children as had no travel cot or high chair so ended up having to take the mattress from my 2 year olds bed with us in the car which luckily managed to just about fit in, but not enough room for highchair. Having said that it worked out ok and we all had a fantastic time. Ian Barton Tenbury wells,Worcestershire
