Holiday Cottages In The Heart Of England To Rent

A picture-perfect blend of historic beauty and urban thrills, the Heart of England protects some of the UK’s most treasured counties. And the best thing is, they’re all joyously easy to reach by car, or public transport! Whether you want to check out the theatre in Stratford Upon Avon or have an industrious adventure to Shropshire’s Ironbridge, the Heart of England just about has it all.

The Heart of England is also privy to some of the UK’s best walks, especially up in Derbyshire, and the finest chocolate box villages, particularly in Gloucestershire’s cosy Cotswold District. And the Heart of England is no stranger to a bit of fun. Enjoy a family day out at Alton Towers in Staffordshire, or, if you’re feeling wild, a trip to West Midlands Safari and Leisure Park is a day trip not soon forgotten.
