Holiday Cottages In Essex To Rent

Despite being a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of London, Essex is a peaceful retreat that couldn’t feel further away. Here you’ll find miles of rolling countryside and lush green fields. It’s an excellent location for a cottage holiday getaway.

After a sunny day walking in the countryside pick up some local delights to enjoy at your holiday cottage. From oysters to jam, Essex has a varied and delicious local fare. If you’re looking for more than miles of countryside Essex also has top attractions to choose from. Kids will love Colchester Zoo, there are numerous gardens and stately homes to explore, and for something a little different, gain a new perspective from the air with a hot air balloon ride.
