Holiday Cottages Essex – Rentals You Will Love

Formed in antiquity, Essex is today one of the Home Counties of England and has a population of more than one and a half million residents. Its rich history and the presence of seaside resorts and the Adventure Island theme park help it to gain a modest influx of tourists each year. Along with the obvious family attractions there are also numerous famous landmarks that date back throughout the centuries. From castles to cathedrals, zoos to abbeys, you'll have no shortage of different things to see and do while you are in Essex. But while deciding to visit isn't hard to do, figuring out where to stay is harder for some than it should be.

In nearly all cases, renting one of the many holiday cottages Essex has to offer is the best bet for you. There are plenty of reasons that they are a better option.

  • For one, renting holiday cottages gives your family space. There is no denying that a hotel room is cramped, especially if you are a family of four or five or more. With a cottage you can select the size that you need and make sure that everyone is comfortable during their sleep at night.
  • When you rent a holiday cottage you are also giving your family the chance to stay together more comfortably. Thanks to the full kitchens you will be able to cook a real breakfast instead of rushing towards a hotel lobby for some stale muffins. Your family gets to eat breakfast – or lunch, or dinner – and plan your day. No matter what, being able to cook meals in your cottage is a great combination of convenience and savings.
  • Since cottages are found all around the region, finding one that is located near the various Essex attractions you want to visit isn't that difficult to do.

People rent these cottages for numerous reasons, as well.

  • Some rent them as a way to recharge their creative energy and find inspiration for projects.
  • Some use them for holidays with the family since they are far better than hotels for family events.
  • Similarly, many families use them as part of tradition, often holding family reunions or Christmas gatherings in a cottage. That's why many of them fill up quickly near the end of the year.
  • They are also perfect for romantic getaways, whether on a honeymoon, an anniversary, or just a special date with someone you love.

In other words, no matter what the occasion there's a good bet that a holiday cottage is the best accommodation you can use.
