In an ever-shrinking world where air travel is faster and cheaper than ever before, why rent a holiday cottage? Why forgo sunny beaches and foreign climates for England? Why holiday here when there is an entire world to explore?
The short answer to those questions is fairly simple. Because we want to. The longer answer is well, longer. There are several reasons why holiday cottages are so popular.
Let’s take a look at each in turn.
Cost of holiday cottages
Let’s not underestimate the impact of cost on our everyday lives. It influences just about every decision we make and is one of the main reasons holiday cottages are so popular.
There is no need to pay overinflated airline prices with a holiday cottage. No need to pay extortionate costs for parking, or manage the expense of kids running around an airport looking for things to buy.
A holiday cottage is a very cost-effective way of getting away from it all for a while. You don’t need to pay for flights, you don’t need to pay for transfers, tips or anything else. You can select a size and location to suit your tastes and your budget and truly tailor your holiday to fit you.
Plus, everything you spend stays within the local economy. Not only are you saving money yourselves, you’re also helping to support local businesses.
Convenience of holiday cottages
How long were you waiting at the airport the last time you went abroad? How much was airport parking? How much did you spend in the airport? None of that is necessary with a holiday cottage.
By the time you have driven to the airport, found a parking space and checked in, you could be sitting in your holiday cottage with a glass of something cool watching the world go by.
Location of holiday cottages
The self-catering industry is now well established and is mature enough to have properties just about anywhere in the U.K. and Ireland. If you want something somewhere, we can usually find it for you.
Our lovely country is full of places to explore and new towns and villages to venture into. It’s too easy to take it all for granted or think it’s all the same. It really isn’t. A holiday in the U.K can be just as invigorating, if not more so, than a trip abroad.
No more late night flights, no more jet lag, no more bleary-eyed drives from the airport. Those days are past!
Flexibility of holiday cottages
If you have spent any time at all on our site, you will already see that your options are numerous. You can choose property types, price, location, date, features, pet friendly and so much more. You really can have your holiday your way.
Need to move a date? Check with the property owner and it should be no problem as long as the property is vacant at the time. No need to change flights or pay extra “administration fees” for simple things like that!
These are just some of the reasons holiday cottages are so popular. Isn’t it about time you booked yours?
