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

Officially, the South East of England consists of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and the Isle of Wight, although there are many different popular definitions of South East England. What ever your definition, the region is a magnificent place to go on holiday, take a holiday cottage and relax. It is both rich in historical cities, open seas and wonderful countryside, open for numerous activities.

Places to holiday in South East England

Kent, the ‘garden of England’, is England’s oldest county, shaped by many centuries of violent history. This turbulent past which has shaped the county is celebrated today, from the preservation of prominent historical monuments and castles to the home of Winston Churchill. Wakeboarding is Kent’s new love, and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this exciting new sport from a South East England cottage in Kent.

East Sussex is a rural haven for walking, trout fishing and cycling. The spectacular coastline which contains the famous Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve has long been a magnet for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders. The pebble beaches baked by the iconic British beach huts are ideal places to sit, swim and picnic.

Things to do in South East England

Being a mainly rural destination, mountain biking, horse riding and trout fishing are all extremely popular activities in the South East of England, perfectly catered for by taking a holiday rental property. Sailing on the Medway between Chichester and Dover is an unforgettable possibility, especially if you can sail past the iconic white cliffs of Dover from your South East England holiday cottage.

South East England has a huge number of unique attractions for all ages and interests. The Planet Earth Museum, Sussex Past and Royal Pavilion in East Sussex, Butterfly Centre, Chislehurst Caves, Dover Castle and Chatham Historic Dockyards in Kent, Birdworld, Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures in Surrey and the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum in West Sussex create magnificent options for family holiday entertainment wherever you decide to take a holiday cottage in South East England.

The owners are hands on and available if required. The location is a short walk from the sea and close to both Worthing and Littlehampton. We will be staying here again hopefully.

It was extremely clean and the welcome hamper was a lovely touch with lots of yummy Island goodies. It is in a great location for exploring the Island and has the added benefit of being opposite a pub which serves delicious meals and has very friendly staff. We would definitely recommend the cottage for couples or families.
