Dec 01, 2020
In 2020 after the lockdown and with oversees travel restricted the Great British Staycation became a reality with cottages being booked up for the whole year within hours. We expect the same this time so our advice first and foremost is to book early and benefit from a wider choice of properties as well as some bargains to be had.
For those looking to continue to avoid the crowds in 2021 why not try somewhere different this year. Maybe somewhere off the beaten track so to speak, such as:
With so many of us unable to see much of our family and friends in 2020 why not book one of our very special, luxury, large properties for extended family and friends in 2021. We have a wide range of big properties that can accommodate larger groups in some incredible locations. Fabulous facilities and plenty of space to celebrate a special occasion or to simply get together for a holiday or short break. Check out Group Getaways & Family Friendly collections.
Your four legged friend need not miss out as we have a superb selection of Dog Friendly holiday homes and cottages. Walking holidays and activity breaks are super popular and many of the properties featured on Handpicked Cottages have truly stunning tracks and walks available straight from your doorstep.
Couples cottages feature strongly on our site and we have cosy cottages with sea views, romantic lodges on the edge of a Scottish Loch, perhaps a hot tub cottage for two? The choice is yours! Check out our Romantic Cottages collection.
Bad times don’t last but great memories last forever so don’t delay book your next holiday or special break and make some memories.
