Cottages for Weekend Breaks - Midweek Breaks - Short Breaks

Note that short breaks are often not available during peak periods, except on a last minute basis.

Private Holiday Cottages in England

England really does have a wonderful selection of self catering holiday cottages to suit all needs and budgets - ranging from value cottages up to stylish luxury holiday homes. For typical English country cottages the Cotswolds is probably one of the best areas to choose, with 'chocolate-box' Cotswold cottages set in the most British of villages and towns, surrounded by rolling countryside. Other popular areas for UK cottage holidays include Devon and Cornwall in the West Country, The Lake District and the East Anglia Coast in Norfolk and Suffolk. The Heart of England and The Derbyshire Peak District is also well worth considering, as not only does it have some wonderful countryside, it is also within very easy reach of London, so perfect for a weekend break.
