Holiday cottages in the East of England

map for holiday cottages in east englandDo you sometimes go abroad on holiday to escape the rain? We'd like you to consider a cottage holiday in the East of England instead. Eastern England is the UK's driest area and is also often its sunniest. But that's far from the only reason for taking a cottage holiday there. For a start, the coastline of Eastern England is fascinating. True, there are no cliffs worthy of the name, but instead there are mysterious tidal inlets, long stretches of golden beach and bird reserves by the score.

Below you can find out more about the counties of East England as cottage holiday destinations, choose between Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire and Essex.

Cambridge & Cambridgeshire holiday cottages

The county of Cambridgeshire has some lovely country cottage holiday destinations, but is best known for the university town that gives it its name. The town of Cambridge is a tourist destination in its own right, with its historic buildings, colleges, river and throng of students giving it an atmosphere all of its own. But Ely is also interesting and although large-scale farming has reduced the charm of much of the Cambridgeshire countryside, delightful pockets remain....

Cambridge's neighbour to the west, Bedfordshire, offers the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the south, the contrasting wooded hills of the Greensand Ridge in the middle and of course the family attractions of Woburn.

Lincolnshire holiday cottages

Suffolk holiday cottages

Suffolk is famous for its coastal villages and these make ideal cottage holiday destinations – villages such as Aldeburgh, Walberswick and Southwold – but the county also includes Lowestoft, the most easterly town in the country and these days more holiday seaside resort than fishing port. Inland lies pleasant countryside dotted with villages, hamlets and small towns which will suit those seeking a quite relaxing cottage holiday break ...

Norfolk holiday cottages

For a cottage holiday in Norfolk you'll have the choice of the famous Norfolk Broads, the resort of Great Yarmouth and pleasant smaller seaside towns like Cromer, Sheringham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Hunstanton. Also consider the Wash – that strange, square-shaped inlet where it's difficult to tell where the land ends and the sea begins – which is a mecca for bird watching, and the nearby royal retreat of Sandringham which is a very popular holiday attraction ...

Essex holiday cottages

The Essex coast is perhaps best known for its 'day out from London' seaside resorts like Southend and Clacton, but there are quieter resorts too and inland some superb countryside for those seeking a cottage holiday not too far from the capital ...
