Reasons to Book a Holiday Cottage

Had enough of airport delays, strikes and cancellations? Year on year, greater numbers of visitors are saying “no” to the hassle of travelling to and from international destinations and choosing to book a staycation in the heart of the Lake District, or settled on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast.

Still undecided? Here’s 7 reasons to book a holiday cottage with Cottage Escapes.

Do what you want to do, when you want to do it

All of our properties are self-catering and with so many walks and outdoor activities on the doorstep, planning an itinerary to suit you and all the family means you have the flexibility to truly take in and and appreciate your surroundings.

No kennel necessary

Most of our properties are pet-friendly, as well as many of the local pubs and restaurants – ensuring no one gets left behind.

The sound of silence

Many of our cottages are settled in the heart of the Cumbrian and North Yorkshire countryside, providing the space many seek to unwind and recharge; surrounded by nothing but nature. Or, for those not looking for total isolation, perhaps a cottage on the coast would fit the bill, or nestled in a bustling market town.

Wide open spaces

When you book a stay with Cottage Escapes, family members of all ages and species can run free across the wide open spaces surrounding our properties – from woodland walks to babbling streams and strenuous slopes. Not only that, but there’s plenty of outdoor activities designed for people of all experiences and after a hard days exploring, enjoy a glass of something sparkling while watching the sunset from your own private hot tub.

Catch up with friends and family

Celebrating an upcoming birthday or special occasion? Maybe you’re a group of anglers who wish to fish the local lakes. Or perhaps you’re a group of friends in need of some time out. Some of our bigger cottages are large enough to cater for groups of 6 – 10 guests and bookings often work out more cost effective per person if you book a stay in bulk.

Cater for all interests

There are so many indoor and outdoor activities on the doorstep, that no matter how big or small your party, all experience and interests are catered for. From walking, cycling, mountain biking and rock climbing to abseiling, water skiing sailing and kayaking. Or maybe a leisurely boat trip is more your taste. Or perhaps a visit to a stately home with magnificent gardens. No matter where you choose to visit, you’ll be surrounded by plenty of things to see and do.

Budget friendly

Not all holiday cottages are equal and just because we’re talking budget friendly, doesn’t mean we’re talking basic. Certainly, your cottage can be stripped back if that’s what you require. But it can also include a private hot tub, welcome packs and all the added comforts you would expect from a boutique hotel.

So this year, why not be inspired by these reasons to book a holiday cottage and join us for a stay.
