Hall Farm
For some, the enticing rich history and the unique character inherent with that is what makes a truly stunning holiday property. Nothing compares to spending a few days, a week or even two in a renovated windmill over 200 years old, a grand Jacobean house or a restored water tower. Apart from a break in a former Methodist Chapel, a lighthouse, a castellated gate-tower or a fisherman’s cottage, of course.

These are just a few exceptional examples of the full offering available from English Country Cottages. Across the collection you will discover over 750 properties, each with its own remarkable story to tell. Many of these are hundreds of year old, and some are even listed buildings, offering an intriguing and unique portal into the past.

Browse our heritage collection today and uncover the history within each and every property.
