Close to London yet boasting one of the finest stretches of coastline in eastern England, holiday rentals in Essex can be found in many situations that will give you a vacation of such contrasts that you could spend a day of shopping and sightseeing in the capital city then return to your holiday home in Essex for a relaxing evening stroll to the nearest beach! Not everybody would prefer a coastal location for their holiday rental in England although many seek the peaceful atmosphere of the countryside, so rent a holiday cottage in Essex and you'll find one in enough areas of outstanding natural beauty to satisfy any passion for the great outdoors - from the ancient woodlands of Epping Forest to the picturesque landscapes of Saffron Walden, cottages and holiday homes in Essex will make you feel like you're a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city of London, although in truth, you won't have far to travel from your cottage rental in Essex if you want to add a little urban excitement to an otherwise thoroughly rustic and typically English holiday. Accommodation in Essex will therefore appeal to the interests of people of all ages in a county that can offer opportunities for recreation and relaxation at any time of the year, so whenever you feel the need for a complete change of scenery, head for the south-eastern corner of England where bed and breakfasts and self catering holiday home rentals in Essex will give you the chance to enjoy a break away from the old routine.
