One of the biggest questions when making travel plans is where to stay. The best holiday accommodation should not only be comfortable and clean, it should allow you the freedom to have the kind of vacation you want. While hotels are synonymous with the travel experience, more people are seeking alternative lodging for a different holiday accommodation package. Cottages have become so popular that it can be difficult to get a booking during the peak periods.
Currently many cottages in England, Wales and Scotland are available for rent at reasonable rates. In many cases, these lodgings are even cheaper than hotels, but they appeal to vacationers for many other reasons as well. One of the main advantages of holiday cottages is that due to the sheer number available, it is easy to find one to suit individual tastes. Whether someone prefers a spot in the town centre or in the quiet countryside, there will be no shortage of options.
A Different Experience
The locations of many of these cottages offer visitors a more diverse holiday experience. They can take walks along the countryside, visit local markets, or go to local restaurants. Quaint villages and castles are also popular attractions, which make cottages viable holiday lodgings. Other attractions and activities available to those who choose cottages include:
* Cycling: This is a great way to tour the countryside and see the sights. It is also a fun activity for families and groups.
* Visiting historical sites: A number of sites and buildings have historical value that might be of interest to visitors. Many people like to visit these spots for a chance to learn about what makes these places special.
* Canoeing: Some cottages are located close to rivers, and vacationers can rent canoes or kayaks for leisurely trips.
Things to Do
Other local attractions in some areas where cottages are available include tours of factories or cider houses, and visits to gardens and animal parks. Some are close to rivers where you can go fishing or swimming. Cycling trails and hiking tracks may also be available. For the history lovers, tours of historic houses are also available depending on where you are staying. These are great lodgings for people traveling alone, couples, families and groups.
