English Heritage Holiday Cottages

At English Heritage, we want to offer you the most exciting and engaging ways to explore England’s past. Whether you find inspiration in the evocative settings, little-known details or colourful characters of history, staying at one of our sites will make for a unique experience. As other visitors leave, you can discover a new side as you explore all by yourself. Soak up the unique atmosphere of the sun setting on hundreds of years of history and, come morning, see it light up some of the most iconic sights in the country.

An example of a great English Heritage holiday cottage is Cambridge Lodge at Audley End House, with cupola topped tower and elegant bow windows

Unique Experiences

A stay in an English Heritage holiday cottage goes beyond being a getaway to a historic place - in many cases there are more unique experiences nearby, just waiting to be discovered. After all, when you stay in one of our holiday cottages, you can enjoy free entry to all English Heritage sites for the duration of your stay. We recommend:

Stay at Peverell's Tower or The Garden Cottage and enjoy a day out at the WWII stronghold of Dover Castle, or see the stunning architecture and deep history of Rievaulx Abbey just a few miles from Priors Lodge. Our Osborne cottages also offer close proximity to Carisbrooke Castle. What will you discover nearby?
