Holiday Cottage Accommodation in the UK

The current financial crisis has meant that more people have decided to stay in the UK rather than travel abroad for their holidays.

There is a still a wide choice of holiday accommodation in the UK but if you are planning a family holiday with young children then renting a cottage might be the best option. Not all B&Bs are suitable for young children, and if you have to pay per person, per night, then even a budget hotel could be quite expensive.

Get away from it all...

Some of the best places in the UK to find holiday cottages are Norfolk, the New Forest, the Peak District, South Wales and Cornwall. Most holiday cottages tend to be in rural or at least semi-rural areas, although it is possible to find one that is ‘close to the sea and all amenities’ as the ads are fond of saying.

One of the good things about holiday cottages is that you just get there and make it your home for a week or two. Nowadays holiday cottages tend to have all of the modern amenities such as fitted and equipped kitchens as well as bath and shower rooms.

It’s a good idea to see whether anyone you know has rented a holiday cottage in the area you want to visit because you’ll get a better idea of what to expect. When you have young children you don’t want to be too far off the beaten track, especially if you are up in the Scottish hills or the Derbyshire Peak District. Old stone cottages may look tempting but if the nearest grocery store is several miles away it may not be quite so great.

Help & tips:

Holiday Cottages

  1. Booking for longer than a week can often have greater savings
  2. If you can try and book out of season – these times offer the best prices
  3. If you have pets, check to make sure the holiday cottage allows them – some don’t
  4. Try booking with another family and get a larger cottage – often these offer great value for money
