The best types of holidays in the UK are spent in cottages in the country. Cottages in the UK are available for hire through a range of means, including both through specialist UK holiday companies and general travel agents. Most of the UK's popular holiday areas are based on its beautiful coastline, but many cottage accommodations are also on offer inland, such as cottages in Wales or Scotland.
Cottage specific accommodation
Many British travel websites are either entirely centred upon cottage holidays, such as Cottagesdirect.co.uk or Easycottages.co.uk, while others designate separate areas of their website to staying in cottages, such as Hoseasons.co.uk. Perform an Internet engine search for "cottage holidays UK" to find the greatest selection of cottage breaks in the United Kingdom.
Browse the different pages hosted by these cottage holiday websites to find your perfect match for accommodation.
Once you have found a suitable cottage accommodation at the right price, search the tourism website for that British county or region to make sure there are plenty of interesting cultural, historic or outdoor activities within easy driving distance.
Other travel agents
Although searching for UK cottage holiday specific websites will provide the broadest selection of cottage accommodation, you may find a better price on the same cottages using established travel agent websites, such as Expedia.co.uk.
Finding the best deal
Search through the pages generated, many of which provide competitive tariffs for short, medium and long-term stays at a British cottage accommodation.
Perform searches using cottage-specific websites based on location, price or length of stay to get the best value for you and your family for a holiday.
Visit your travel agent A number of travel agents have branches in the UK High street, such as Thomas Cook, Thomson and First Choice. - Visit your travel agent and discuss your needs with a member of staff who should be able to offer you some options on the spot. - Consider whether you could find a cheaper price for the same accommodation based on what your travel agent finds through their search. - As travel agents tend to specialise in holidays abroad, not in the UK, you may well find a better price by performing your own search for accommodation.
