Holiday homes and rentals in England

A real British holiday break

England is a great country with different options when looking for a holiday home. The north of the island offers quiet accommodation surrounded by nature and stunning views, lakes and wildlife. The Midlands is also a great option to stay near the countryside and great cities such as Birmingham, Leicester or Nottingham. Wales, in the west, features great extensions of land, with traditional properties in the heart of the English countryside. The greatest beaches are down in the south of the island so head to Cornwall, Brighton, Bournemouth, Eastbourne or Margate. Find the seafront property for your perfect getaway.

From modernity to tradition

In the big cities you will enjoy a different range of prices, size and taste for every rental. Modern, well equipped and lovely decorated rentals with views to iconic landmarks, rivers or well-known parks. For more privacy and quietness, several rentals in the outskirts of the cities or in the countryside itself, are suitable for larger groups and families with kids. Great lawns and green areas to enjoy your BBQs, a Sunday roast at the terrace or a nice evening by the fireplace. Unique half-timbered cottages and stone facades define a British character. The summer heat can be eased by the pool and under the shady trees of your private land. Get to pack your bags!

The greatness of a little country

England belongs to the United Kingdom, which is reflected on their Union Jack, and it features the most varied contrasts you can imagine. Tradition meets modernity and innovation. Great and modern cities, financial hubs, traditional architecture and lots of Heritage Sites and history behind the walls of every monument.

Flavours from around the world

As a multicultural country, the different influences of international gastronomy have been spreading and enriching England’s cuisine. Find Spanish restaurants with its traditional tapas or Italian restaurant with the best pasta and pizza you can think of. The Asian gastronomy is really varied, and therefore, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese or Indian cuisine contribute with little hints of their own. Britain has also its own traditional dishes. Start the day with a full English Breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans and mash. Enjoy a Sunday roast with the family, a delicious Shepherd’s Pie or Cornish pasty. Finish off the meal with trifle, and a rhubarb or apple breadcrumbs pudding. Bon appetit!

Travellers and activities

England for heritage lovers

England offers some greatest Heritage Sites you must see. The address Number 1, London belongs to Apsley House, where the first Duke of Wellington lived. It was the first house you came to when entering London back in the day and that’s the reason of this particular address. Discover about 5.000 years of history at the megalithic monument of Stonehenge, still one of the greatest mysteries in the world. Enjoy the city of Bath with its famous Roman-built baths and marvel at the impressive cathedrals of Durham, Canterbury, Winchester or Sant Paul’s, in London. Enter Westminster Abbey, the burial site of Charles Dickens and finish your day at Kew Gardens and recharge your batteries. The country has plenty of history for you to learn!

England for hiker and mountain lovers

England enjoys the privilege of large green areas and beautiful countryside landscapes. The whole country features National Trust Parks which are excellent for hiking and enjoy the mountain. Heading north, you can spend a long weekend in the Lake District visiting the beautiful lakes, hiking to the top of the mountain and getting fabulous views from it. Follow the marked trails and challenge yourself choosing the right trail according to your fitness level. Peak District also offers several routes for all level hikers. In Wales, the countryside offers miles of beautiful scenery to enjoy a fabulous weekend away surrounded by nature and quietness. Down to the south, the stunning white cliffs of Dover or Seven Sisters will have you in awe once you get to the highest point to admire the horizon. Get your picture-perfect snap and beware when doing so. Don’t get too close to the edge!

1. Get the London vibes

No holiday in the UK is complete without visiting its vibrant and always buzzing business and tourist hub - London! Iconic landmarks for your best selfies, international cuisine, quaint neighbourhoods and a 24h schedule to keep you occupied 24/7. There is no time for boring! Shop around the beautiful Covent Garden and stroll around the streets of Chinatown and Soho. Enjoy the vibes of trendy Shoreditch and take pleasant strolls at the fabulous Royal Parks with its ponds, fauna and many activities and festivals happening throughout the year. Spend a few hours at the majestic streets of the City, the financial hub. After a long walk along Southbank, get on the double deck bus, explore Little Venice and the canals, visit the greatest museums and art galleries or use the underground to experience the most alternative neighbourhood of all, Camden Town! Don’t forget to have a nice cuppa at Fortnum & Mason, the finest tea shop in London.

2. A fabulous break at the beach

If you need a beach holiday or simply a weekend away, head to Cornwall This little paradise is the favourite spot for Brits to go on holidays. Mingle with the locals and enjoy its pristine beaches and beautiful beach resorts. Down in the south of the country, Portsmouth or Brighton are two seaside towns with a lovely beach, nice little shops and great eateries. A boat ride away from Portsmouth you get to the Isle of Whight where to enjoy its food, its festivals and the charm of its lovely beaches.

3. Enjoy a weekend in Liverpool

A lovely city with lots of history, splendid buildings and the legacy of one of the greatest bands in the 70s, the Beatles. Browse the shops of Albert Dock and visit the Tate Gallery, the Liverpool Museum or the Beatles Experience downstairs, and the Liverpool Museum at the Riverside. Take a walk along the promenade and head to the city centre to grab a pint at the iconic Cavern Pub. Take a picture by John Lennon’s statue at the main entrance or at the stage where it all started!

4. Getting into traditions

If you need to escape the city rush think of a traditional tour of the country. Fill up your camera with precious moments and great landscapes of the English countryside. Visit Cambridge and Oxford Universities, this last, an architectural gem where some famous people were educated such as Oscar Wilde, Hugh Grant and Stephen Hawking. And after a great day of sightseeing, a nice afternoon tea and a few sweets treats before you go for dinner at the many inns and pubs serving, of course, the traditional fish and chips or their English breakfast, in the mornings.

5. Dance to the beat

Fun, music and good vibes? Think of dancing outdoors to your favourite music and renowned artists and surrounded by stalls and food trucks with delicious mouthwatering bites from all over the world. Whatever the season, there is always a festival or event around the country. Iconic Glastonbury, great Reading Festival, London’s British Summer Time, northern Festival No.6 or the annual Isle of Wight Festival. Browse the web and find the one you like best.
