England

 

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 wander/gloucestershire 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.

The differences are more than geographic, England is a country of many cultures reflected in its many festivals, events and celebrations found in just about every town and village throughout the country. From Pancake Day races in a Leicestershire Village or Cheese-rolling in Gloucestershire to great events such as the Glastonbury Festival, World-class Shakespeare plays in Stratford on Avon or sporting events from rugby internationals at Twickenham to village cricket - there's something appealing in which to visit or participate in just about every city, town and village in England throughout the year. Booking a town or country cottage in England allows you the flexibility to coordinate your days around whatever you want to do, rather than being bound by set meal times in hotels.
