Holiday Cottages Within 1 Hour of a London City Visit

Ahhh the capital of England and the official residence of the Queen, Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

London is a fabulous eclectic combination of some of the world’s best sights, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace as well as offering never-ending quirks, cultural diversity and fantastic shopping. A 24 hour city where you’ll struggle to run out of things to do and see.

If you’re planning a day or weekend trip to London but you fancy a little seaside air or a touch of tranquil countryside, then perhaps a break in one of Original Cottages’ Kent or Brighton properties is the perfect mix of London flair and rural idyll. Many of our properties in Kent and along the Sussex coast are within an hour of London’s main attractions and all easily accessible by train. So leave the car in the driveway, get yourself an Oyster card and experience the bright lights of London Town for yourself.

From converted Oast houses, traditional wood slatted barns to trendy seaside apartments in Brighton, we have a large selection of properties to meet everyone’s needs and all within an hour of London. If you’ve got your eye on a cottage holiday with a dash of real urban flavour then have a scroll through some of the fantastic cottages we have available to book online and all conveniently located for London and it’s towering skyline. If you’d like some advice or help with your search, then call our team on 0333 2020 899 we’re on hand to help.
