What's so wonderful about a Heart of England cottage is that it's so centrally situated and easy to get to, whether you're planning a week away or a surprise last minute break.
Discover Shropshire and Herefordshire, the border counties of England with Wales. Both have a timeless air about them, with plenty of inviting open green spaces - perfect for enjoying the 'great outdoors' walking, cycling, riding, fishing and so on. You'll find lots of lovely small villages and historic towns, attractions to suit all ages and incredibly good food. From farmers' markets showcasing local delights to gastronomic Michelin-starred restaurants, these two sleepy counties have them all. And don't forget to sample Herefordshire's famous cider, thought to rival the best in the world!
Trace Elgar's footsteps in Worcestershire, renowned for its wealth of beautiful churches and other historic monuments, plus its wide range of annual events and festivals. Discover the beauty of the Malvern Hills AONB, go on safari in the Wyre Forest and learn all about that tongue-tickling, tangy sauce! Or opt for a Heart of England cottage in Gloucestershire, another gloriously green county dotted with idyllic villages, market towns and historic treasures.
And remember, cosmopolitan cities like Birmingham, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all on your doorstep.
The Heart of England is just as its name describes - a sprawling region slap bang in the middle of the UK. To help you find your ideal Heart of England holiday let, we've divided the area up (Hereford cottages, Worcester cottages etc - see left). You'll find beamed cottages and stylish barn conversions, small, terraced houses and big, detached residences - all kinds of holiday rentals in the Heart of England's prime locations. Short breaks and last-minute holidays are a popular choice, with any special offers highlighted next to the Heart of England holiday rental. Or why not plan your main two-week holiday here and consider a two-centre stay, perhaps combining Symonds Yat with Stow-on-the-Wold or Leominster with Tetbury? There are various options on offer and booking two of our holiday lets in the Heart of England means two holidays in one and twice as much fun!
