Holiday time is around the corner and its time to plan where to go and what sort of holiday you prefer. If you dislike the hustle and bustle of busy hotels or living in a self catering apartment what are your options?
Holiday time is around the corner and its time to plan where to go and what sort of holiday you prefer.
If you dislike the hustle and bustle of busy hotels or living in a selfcatering apartment what are your options!
You can rent a caravan or hire a tent, or you could decide to take a cottage holiday.
Holiday cottages come in all shapes and sizes tiny ones for two people or large ones for ten to twelve people or more.
They can be quaint and crooked or up to date with all the mod cons.
You can find one with a thatched roof which is every ones picture of a real country cottage, or many of them have a swimming pool or tennis courts !
They can be in the depth of the country away from it all, where woodland and wild flowers are in abundance, or in a small village where the local shop sells anything and everything.
If you like the idea of farming life where the children can see the animals and feed the hens, your in luck because many farms rent out the little cottages on their land some even have a horse to ride.
Even the seaside has their fair share so if you dream of lying on the golden sands and dipping your feet in the cool sea water you are in luck.
Climbing and hiking holidays are very popular for the fit and hardy, you can find a cottage or a cosy wooden chalet on the side of Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands, and if you don't like the mountains the Yorkshire Dales are perfect for walking.
Lakes and rivers are always popular, although they are not a perfect environment for young children so families should steer clear of these. If you opt for a cottage close to Loch Lomond you might even see the monster of the deep if you are extremely lucky.
Cottages are everywhere and it is not only the summer time when they can be enjoyed. Even in the middle of winter you can curl up in front of a real log fire or wrap up warmly and face the elements of a wintry countryside.
Many cottages allow dogs, imagine their delight with so much open space and all the different smells that send them ecstatic with joy.
There are no downsides to cottage life for if you opt for a holiday in Great Britain you must expect the possibility of bad weather. Make sure you take some games or a pack of cards to keep the children occupied in this event, for mom and dad a good book or the ever faithful television which almost every cottage will have.
If you want to venture further a field you can travel by ferry over to France you will need your car due to the long distances you may have to travel,it can be harrowing at times unless you are used to driving on the right side of the road.
So people enjoy your holiday in the cottage of your dreams. Quaint, Cosy, Thatched or Modern, there is one out there for you.
