England is full of fantastic destinations for a last minute cottage holiday. You can choose to stay near one of the country’s many buzzing cities such as London, Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham and spend your days shopping and your nights in the restaurants and bars. However, if you are looking for a more peaceful and relaxing holiday, you might prefer a stay in the glorious English countryside in places such as Yorkshire or Devon. In these kinds of rural destinations it is great to be able to go for long walks across the spectacular landscape and enjoy the wonderful views that are on offer. If this is the type of last minute cottage holiday you are looking for, you should consider staying near a National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as these are the places that allow you to feel completely at ease in the beauty of England’s nature. The Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the Cotswold are just a small selection of the National Park’s and AONB’s that are located in England.
Families and thrill seekers will simply love the English coast, as while the beaches are beautiful and the sands are golden, the seas can get rather choppy and are perfect for water sports such as windsurfing, surfing and waterskiing. Places such as Bournemouth and Newquay attract tourists to its shores every year and renting a country cottage in the area will allow you to drive or walk down to the coast whenever you want a dip in the water. Families may be more attracted to the resorts at Blackpool or Brighton, as the rides and entertainment on the piers are sure to keep your kids entertained when you are not relaxing on the beach.
