Country cottages come in many different guises. You may select a converted barn, a thatched roof cottage or something more contemporary. Whatever your family’s requirements, there are amenities to suit.  Owners are happy to supply cots or high chairs for the little ones, and most have internet access. If you really want to pamper yourself, some even have a hot tub! You might even fancy a cottage on a working farm, with fresh produce on tap. Lots of families like to take their pet along on holiday, and countryside accommodation is the perfect choice. Many owners are happy to welcome pets to their country cottages.

Staying in the countryside could mean a lakeside location or a cottage surrounded by woodland. You may prefer a view of the sea or something near a river. Holiday accommodation is sited in deep countryside, near the beach and close to towns. Some families like to be quite near shopping and leisure facilities, whilst others hanker for that ‘middle of nowhere’ feel.  Imagine long walks in the Scottish Highlands and returning home to an open fire and a hearty meal. Self-catering brings flexibility and freedom to enjoy the countryside according to your own timetable. Perhaps, you’ve always wanted to explore the wonderful landscapes of Welsh beauty spots, such as the Gower Peninsula or the Isle of Anglesey.
