Why To Rent Holiday Cottages On Your Family Holiday

May 20, 2008
Holiday cottages are very popular with holiday makers going on a family holiday. A holiday cottage is a single storey house available for rent and is a fast growing sector of the holiday market.

Holiday cottages are residential buildings which are available for tourists to stay in on their vacations. There are many different types of holiday cottages around the world with some in the countryside and others right by the sea.

When thinking about a holiday cottage you should consider how many people are going to stay in the cottage. You need to check how many bedrooms the holiday cottage has and also how many beds are in each bedroom.

Some holiday cottages also have sofa beds in the living room and some also have 'put me up' beds. It is important to check that if the holiday cottage states how many beds that it has that you know how many of these are in the bedrooms.

When looking for a cottage for a family holiday, you must decide what sort of cottage that you are looking for. If you are a lover of mod cons and luxury you need to ensure that the cottage has all of the appliances that you need. It is possible to stay in some superb holiday cottages that are furnished to an extremely high standard. It is also to check how many bathrooms each cottage has.

Some of the more modern holiday cottages have more than one bathroom, whereas some of the older more traditional cottages may only have one bathroom. Beware, some of the very old cottages may have separate bathroom facilities to the cottage. This may at first seem fun, but the novelty of going to the toilet in the middle of the night soon wears off!

The location of your holiday cottage is also extremely important. If you are looking for a beach holiday you need to ensure that your holiday cottage is close to the sea. There is some fabulous holiday cottage accommodation near to or on the coast with stunning views.

Other holiday makers on a family holiday may want to stay in a country cottage. Again there is a great choice of cottages in the country to choose from and many families come back to the same holiday cottage in the country year after year on their family vacations.

There are lots of holiday cottages in Scotland by the sea aimed at family holidays. There is also a big market for holiday cottages in Scotland amongst the many golfers who like to go to Scotland on a golfing holiday.

For the lovers of walking and climbing there are some great country cottages in Scotland offering peace and tranquillity. These holiday cottages in Scotland differ greatly in style to the type of holiday cottages found elsewhere. Typically a holiday cottage in Scotland is built in a red stone and has its own unique style.

Cornwall also has a good supply of holiday cottages and is very popular with holiday makers going on a family holiday. Many holiday cottages in Cornwall are near to the sea and many sit on the edge of some of Cornwall's beautiful beaches.

A holiday cottage in Cornwall by the sea is a very popular family holiday with the holiday makers using the cottage as a base to explore the local area. They can swim in the sea, surf and even fish during the day and then return to their holiday cottage at night to relax. Many holiday cottages in Devon have fabulous views out over the sea.

Devon has perhaps the best examples of a typical English Country Cottage. Many people associate an English Country Cottage in Devon with cream teas and warm lazy summer afternoons in the countryside.
