Self catering holidays in England

Visit England for a great holiday

London Olympics

There is more to do and see in England than almost anywhere else

There is so much more to England than it's capital city of London. Most foreign tourists are introduced to England by a holiday in London initially and we recommend that exciting stay in London and a tour of the tourist attractions. English people themselves enjoy London, its theatres, parks, markets and historic buildings. It's easy to get to London, the travel connections are excellent by road, air and train.

Foreign visitors often have a good knowledge of historical English people. The works of William Shakespeare continue to attract visitors to Stratford upon Avon in the Midlands; a 2 hour drive from London. The city of Warwick and castle near Stratford upon Avon are also worth the visit. There are plenty of impressive medieval buildings and a day out at the castle offers plenty of good family entertainment. Take a look at for self-catering accommodation in the Midlands for somewhere comfortable to stay.

English national parks are a surprise to foreign visitors; those natural acres of countryside and woodland open to the skies. Many foreign visitors tend to think of England is being packed full of red brick houses and Coronation Street type terraces and are completely unaware of the charming villages and market towns.

One rural area known for its charm and pretty villages is the Cotswolds. The Cotswold hills lie south west of London, within easy reach and offer villages of golden stone scattered across the hills. This is an affluent area known for quality goods and products. Explore the various villages, take in the lovely views, enjoy the very English tradition of afternoon tea in one of the cafes or hotels. This is the place to come for fine dining and antique shops. - Rent holiday cottages in the Cotswolds to experience a most pleasant holiday in rural England.

One of the rural crafts still alive and well is thatching. Cottages in certain parts of England still have thatched roofs. These cottages tend to be considered quaint and romantic by people with an eye for nostalgia. Good places to go to see - for thatched country cottages - Isle of Wight, Devon in south west England, and the counties of Suffolk and Essex, north east of London.
