TOP 10 Reasons To Go On Cottage Holidays


If you want a deserved break to escape from the demands of everyday life, cottage holidays are a great option. They are especially beneficial if you are going on holiday with either: aged parents; small children or pets. Cottage holidays are self catering holidays where you have sole use of a property, which is usually owned by an individual.
Do you want to escape from your demanding daily life? Do you need to get away from daily routine and tight deadlines? Are you weary of camping; tired of caravans or bored to death of hotels? If you answer yes to any of these questions then a cottage holiday could be what you need!

Benefits
There are several benefits of cottage holidays, depending on the reason for going away on holiday:
1 - Flexible Choice - When on a cottage holiday in a holiday cottage you are on your own schedule and therefore have the flexibility and choice:
  • What - You can choose what you want to do on holiday.
  • Where - You can go and stay anywhere you want in the world.
  • When - You can go on holiday whenever you want at any time of year and do things when you feel like doing them.
  • How Long - You can stay for virtually any length of time you want and do what you want for as long as you want.
2 - Individuality - The majority of holiday cottages are owned by individuals, which naturally means each property has their individual character stamped on them.
3 - Space - With the large majority of holiday cottages you get a larger space when compared with everyday hotel rooms and hence there is more room for the things you want to take on holiday.
4 - Privacy - A cottage holiday means you have sole use of the property and you therefore have a lot of privacy that can be perfect for families who want to spend some quality time together.
5 - Property Variety - You can take a cottage holiday in a variety of holiday accommodation types in a variety of sizes and configurations to match your needs. You could stay in a: traditional cottage; house; bungalow; barn conversion; villa; chalet/lodge, studio, apartment or flat; even a castle or manor house.
6 - Location Variety - Holiday cottages can be found in all sorts of locations: villages, towns or cities; close to a pub; by a river or next to the sea; close to mountains or in the countryside.
7 - Facilities Variety - Holiday cottages usually contain all the standard facilities found in a home and the design and character will vary between properties. You get a lounge, television and audio equipment; kitchen and cooking gear; bedrooms and clothes storage; bathroom and toilet. You could also get a garden; terrace and/or BBQ area. There could even be a pool or hot tub in luxury holiday cottages.
8 - Homely Comfort - As each holiday cottage was at one point a home for someone, they are like a home from home with all the comforts of a home. There are no set meal times or activity schedules like on a hotel or package holiday and if ever the weather takes a turn for the worst, you have a home to return to.
9 - Family Friendly - Choosing a self catering holiday cottage can be a great option for taking pets, children, or elderly people with you on holiday.
10 - Less Cost - If you compare a cottage holiday with a package holiday or hotel accommodation, the cottage holiday is most probably the cheaper option. Firstly you do not have to pay for facilities or food you do not want. Secondly, when catering for your self, food costs less, you probably eat less and do not waste as much. You also do not have staff that you feel you have to tip for their services.
