Self Catering Cottages an Excellent Way to Explore

Britain may be small, but it has a host of beautiful places which are well worth visiting. A good way of exploring these beauties is to make a base in one area and take various routes out throughout the stay. Staying at self catering cottages makes this itinerary very easy.

Self catering cottages give immense freedom to a holiday. From rising in a morning, whenever you like, to returning in the early hours from star watching, the timing is entirely at your command. One day you can be out and about, the next recuperate at your leisure; some self catering cottages are attached to farms and so there is plenty to watch, even if you are just sitting.

There is a range of prices and sizes, so you can choose self catering cottages which exactly match your budget and needs. A couple wanting quiet may well choose a cottage deep in the country. A large family who all want to holiday together can rent a whole house – some sleep as many as 10 to 15 people.

But probably the major attraction of self catering cottages is the chance to go somewhere and “live” somewhere different. With all the convenience of a real building all to yourself and the normal domestic facilities, you can still stay in a fisherman’s cottage on the Isle of Wight with a view over the Channel or an artist’s loft in Cornwall.

Alternatively, your choice in self catering holiday cottage may be simple comfort and here you have the widest choice imaginable. Just choose the area you fancy and look around. Lack of mobility is not a problem; in fact, self catering cottages could be the perfect answer. Most cottages have good access for people and vehicles and increasing numbers of cottages are being specially adapted for wheelchair access. Extra wide doors, specially equipped bathrooms, even kitchens with lowered worktops are now readily available.

For walkers and/or dog owners there are self catering cottages on all the major moorland areas, cliff tops and beautiful river valleys. For historians, you can stay near ancient sites or particularly ancient cities. Whatever your taste in holidays, there will be self catering cottages in areas to suit you.
