An Introduction to England

Getting away from it all in a beautiful, English country cottage holds timeless appeal. Whatever the time of year, England is the quintessential cottage holiday destination. England is blessed with rolling dales and moorlands, majestic mountains, a whole host of National Parks and several thousand miles of dramatic coastline—there’s no excuse not to get out and explore.

Chocolate box villages, medieval market towns, and cosmopolitan cities; every part of this green and pleasant land is a picture postcard of incredible locations. Self catering breaks in England aren’t complete until you’ve soaked up all the pomp and pageantry of the country’s glorious historical treasures. From the mystical solstice rites at Stonehenge to regal castles with their flags fluttering proudly, there’s a rich wealth of English heritage waiting to be discovered.

The line-up of top family attractions is perfect for days out with kids and big kids alike. Award-winning zoos, wild theme parks—England has something for the whole family. And let’s not forget Morris Dancing, cricket, thatched roofs, sticks of seaside rock, and a spot of afternoon tea …Yes, England's rather an extraordinary place and we have an extraordinary range of cottages to match!

Here at Sykes, we offer over 4,500 holiday cottages across England that are all hand-selected by our regional experts. Our list of locations and property types just goes on and on. We have English holiday cottages tucked away in the most idyllic parts of the country, whilst others are situated in and around bustling market towns and resorts. We have cosy cottages for two, bumper-sized houses for larger groups and gatherings, and everything in-between.

For a little extra luxury, take an indulgent dip at one of our cottages with hot tubs, cuddle up in a lordly four-poster bed, or dive into family fun at one of our swimming pool properties. To find your dream place to stay in England, call our friendly holiday advisers with your wish list or browse and book online today.
