Looking for a self catering cottage break in the Midlands?

Popular holiday destinations in the Midlands include the open expanses of the Peak District National Park and Lincolnshire Wolds where nature lovers can enjoy being 'in the country', go walking or cycling.

Much of the Midlands, outside the Peak District, in Lincolnshire, Leceistershire and to a degree Nottringhamshire, is fairly flat and ideal for cycling.  There are plenty of safe car free cycle paths and an extensive cycle network connects many towns. The tow path of the Grand Union Canal, which  links London with Birmingham, provides a fascinating place to walk with colourful canal boats and opportunities to stop and talk with people on their long boats.

There are fascinating historic cities to visit such as Warwick for its castle and olde worlde streets, Stratford upon Avon and all things Shakespearean, Lincoln with its cathedral and castle at the top of the hill via cobbled streets.  Numerous market towns offer not only markets but their specialities to try. Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire is famous for its pork pies, Mansfield for its ale. There are visitor attractions galore in the Midlands, anything and everything from National Trust Properties, to chocolate making and theme parks.

Local events in the Midlands may also have an impact on when you go on holiday. Summer brings a tradition of 'well dressing' in the Peak District and other areas have their own annual traditions and events. It's worth checking what's on before you book a holiday cottage or ask the cottage owners about events and traditions in their part of the Midlands before booking. It may even determine your choice of self catering cottage.

All in all, the Midlands offer a rich cultural and historic experience during your holiday.
