A few of the holiday lets provide a pool, which makes England a great holiday destination for holidaymakers looking to spend their holidays poolside. In addition, more hotel rooms have pools than any other property type. They are a great choice if you go in a group of 2, as that is the number of people they can accommodate on average. Nearly half of England's properties including a pool are within 2 kilometres of water, so you can choose between some pool time or waterfront moments. Many holiday lettings in England allow pets, which makes it a suitable holiday spot for pet owners. If this is a top requirement for you, have a look at the hotel rooms in England. This is the most pet-friendly accommodation type there. You can also find various accommodation options if you would prefer to stay near the city centre, as a few of the pet-friendly holiday lettings are less than 2 kilometres away from the centre of the city.

How to get to England?

Getting to your England accommodation

England has many large airports up and down the country, so you should have no travel issues no matter where you've booked your England holiday home. As you may expect, the largest airports are in London (4 of the top 5 busiest airports in the country are located here), so this may well be your starting point in the country. Wherever your final destination, there will be a public transport option to get there.

Driving distances are also short, so renting a car is a good idea. This will also help you to visit England’s more remote attractions. Arriving via Eurostar train or boat from mainland Europe is also an option when travelling to England holiday homes.

Where to find the best food in England?

England’s nightlife

England caters for people who enjoy all different kinds of nightlife. Young lively things will find cities across the country offering some of Europe’s best nightlife, especially in Newcastle, Liverpool and London. Head to the nightlife centre in any of these three cities and you’ll find many spots – from bars to nightclubs – packed to the rafters on Friday and Saturday nights.

But you don’t have to be out all night to enjoy England’s nightlife. The collective home is the local pub, which is best thought of as a community living room where you can unwind with friends over a pint of lager or real ale. It’s a friendly atmosphere, so spend your Saturday night here instead of staying in at England holiday lettings.

What is the weather like in England?

Weather in England

England has a reputation for being cold and grey, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. While it can hardly be said that the country is constantly basking in sunshine, spring and summer do bring pleasant conditions. Winters are generally dry, too, with crisp and sunny mornings typical. That being said, it can always rain, even if just for an hour, so make sure you have some waterproof clothing packed ready for England holiday lettings.

What are the top sights in England?

England’s best sights

England packs a lot in for a country of a relatively modest size. Whether your main interests are cities, quaint villages, history or nature, you’ll find what you’re looking for, wherever your England holiday letting is situated.

London is rightly regarded as the must-visit destination in England. This spectacular city has history and beautiful buildings seemingly on every corner, but it doesn’t rest on its laurels. This is a modern, ever-evolving city. Main highlights include Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the British Museum and Hyde Park, along with many cool art galleries, neighbourhoods and, of course, pubs.

Once you’ve left the chaos of London, you’ll find many other excellent cities beyond. Liverpool and Manchester in the north-west have established themselves as cool, lively cities with excellent nightlife and art scenes, while cities such as York boast a history nearly as magnificent as London’s. Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace, is a must visit for fans of literature.

If you have a car during your stay at England holiday lettings, you’ll be able to experience England’s beautiful natural vistas. In Dorset, visitors can walk along the stunning Jurassic Coast, a 152 kilometer stretch of cliffs and beautiful coastline. In the north of England lies the Lake District National Park, an extensive area filled with mountains, valleys and lakes. Visit Bowness-on-Windermere and experience an area which is English through and through.

What are the best places to discover the arts and culture of England?

England’s thriving cultural scene

England has always been global leader in culture and the arts. In virtually every major city you’ll find theatres, historic art, music and a bustling modern scene. As may be expected, most of these are found in London. Check out The National Gallery, Brick Lane Gallery and the Tate Modern for the best art, and also take in a theatre show in the world-famous West End.

In Liverpool you’ll find another Tate museum and the Walker Art Gallery, while in Birmingham you’ll find the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, one of the country’s most important museums. The Lowry in Manchester is one of the best modern art galleries, with works of art and performances taking place.

What are the must-see attractions in England?

England: Cultural treasures

Windsor Castle

This stunning castle, located close to the capital, is one of the Queen's official residences. Parts of the castle, including magnificent rooms, are open to the public and can be visited along with the surrounding grounds.


This ancient Wiltshire-based monument was erected between 2000 and 3000BC and has astounded people for millennia. A British historical icon, it is thought to have been a burial ground.

Big Ben

Officially-speaking, Big Ben is the nickname for the bell housed inside the Queen Elizabeth Tower. The world-famous clock is situated next to the Houses or Parliament and offers excellent photography opportunities.

Tower Bridge

Built between 1886 and 1894, Tower Bridge spans the mighty River Thames. If you're lucky, you might even see the bridge open to let boats pass through.

London Eye

This giant Ferris wheel was commissioned to celebrate the new millennium and has since become a London icon and outstanding visitor attraction, offering unparalleled views of the capital.
