Plan and prepare for your self catering cottage holiday in the UK

Plan and prepare for your self catering cottage holiday in the UK to ensure a happy holiday.

We are most fortunate to have so many lovely locations for holidays in the UK. Once you have chosen your holiday location, take time to find out about the holiday cottages that attract you and more about the facilities in the area. Take a look at a selection of lovely country cottages in the UK   to find good quality comfortable accommodation for you and your family throughout the UK.

Good preparation for your self catering country cottage holiday

Good preparation is the key to a happy self catering holiday. Plan to make things as easy as you possibly can, talk to the cottage owners to establish where you can go shopping or obtain petrol and the facilities that are available to you. A checklist can be useful.

Do make sure that you have travel insurance even if you are holidaying in the UK because you may still be liable for the cost of the holiday even if you are unable to take up the holiday due to illness or unexpected disasters. Read the terms and conditions of booking your holiday cottage and take them with you on holiday because you may need to be familiar with these in case of any problems.

Families with young children, or babies, may feel that they need to bring all manner of child-related equipment. Many country cottages and self-catering accommodations have cots, high chairs, stair gates, bottle warmers and similar baby equipment available for you to borrow.  Those who are especially family oriented may also provide play areas, toys and games.

Travelling to you self catering holiday cottage in the UK

Not everyone is happy to drive long distances to get to a holiday destination, even in the UK. If you prefer to travel by train which makes sense if you take advantage of family railcards, or fly, you may wish to hire a car from the railway station or airport to get you to your holiday cottage. Sometimes this is the best option even if you have car rental at the beginning or end of your holiday for a few days only. Rural buses are not equipped for suitcases and rather than struggle, consider car hire.

It may also be worth talking to cottage owners about possible collection from the railway station or airport for a small fee. Some may oblige. The need for car hire really depends on your location and distance from the country cottage. Distances in Scotland or rural Wales are likely to be greater than in the south west of England or the Midlands. It's down to doing some research and being prepared.
