English country cottages in the Heart of England
Take a look at our cottage holidays map and you'll see that 'Heart of England' is absolutely the right name for this region, the only one of our eleven areas to have no coastline. This lack of coastline means the Heart of England relies for its appeal on the charm of its very English countryside but that's not a problem, for what countryside!
The Cotswolds, the Peak District, the Marches of Herefordshire and Shropshire, the Malverns of Worcestershire, Shakespeare country in Warwickshire, Sherwood Forest ... this may in part be the English industrial heartland, but as ever in the UK, beautiful countryside is never far away, and it's a countryside packed full of beautiful English country cottages to rent.
The area includes the counties of Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire,
Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire,
Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Use our Detailed
