Holidays With History

Make the most a short break in the English countryside. The itineraries we've suggested here each include a visit to at least three English Heritage properties and a stay in a cosy cottage, right in the heart of our historic sites.

Cottages by the sea

A proper holiday wouldn't be complete without a trip to the sea. From fairytale castles to remote and tranquil ruins, if you're craving the seaside air, head to one of the properties below and enjoy stunning views - and perhaps an ice cream or three.
