Staying in an English Country Cottage is a great way to experience this inspiring "green and pleasant land". From rugged wave-worn cliffs at Land’s End in Cornwall to the white sandy shores of the idyllic Northumberland coastline, the wealth and depth of England’s history and culture is unprecedented in the modern world.

The differences are not just cultural, England has such a beautiful and varied geographical landscape that anyone travelling the country as a tourist will be amazed at the changing countryside. From the wilderness coast of North Devon, you will only need to venture south a few miles to experience soft rolling hills and deep red soil. As you wonder around the country the landscape changes as often as the county boundaries. From the flat East Anglian fenlands of Lincolnshire, it’s a short drive to the Pennine’s the mountainous backbone of England that stretches from Derbyshire to the border to Hadrian’s Wall. But wherever you choose to book a holiday cottage in England, you can be sure that a choice of quaint, traditional, contemporary or listed holiday homes will be available to welcome you and provide a comfortable, memorable holiday in England.
