Each area of England has its own charms and attractions. Whilst on holiday remember to participate in the English pastime of drinking tea and eating cake. Wherever you go on your self catering holiday in England you will no doubt come across quaint tea shops where you can have a cream tea and take a relaxing break.

England is of course well known for elegant large country houses and English country cottages. If your budget doesn’t extend to staying in a large manor house or mansion, you can nevertheless enjoy visiting one of the National Trust’s or English Heritage properties on a day out. There are many quaint country cottages in England to choose from ranging from cottages for two to budget family self catering accommodation. You may even find accommodation within a national park or within an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are many options including eco friendly properties and even houseboats.

In terms of activities you can enjoy in England, these include walking, hiking, cycling and horse riding. There are usually ample opportunities for these sorts of activities in the country areas.
