If camping or caravanning isn’t your thing, self-catering holidays in the uk can still be a green option. You can have the comforts of home and the flexibility to do what you want; when you want – without queuing for the showers! Choosing a location in walking distance to the beach or to the local pub and shops reduces your reliance on the car. And another money saving benefit worth factoring in, is that some cottages are pet-friendly – cutting down on expensive kennels or catteries.
Finding a reasonably priced holiday cottage in the UK, can sometimes be difficult – it often appears better value to go abroad, but is it? If you add in the flight costs, car hire, insurance, petrol costs and all that sun cream you’ll need, suddenly a cottage in north Devon doesn’t seem such a bad idea. Many cottages are in stunning locations with lots to choose from in terms of style, size and price. And there are now lots of cottages with swimming pools and hot tubs, games rooms (for when it rains) or children’s playgrounds; a cottage holiday can be as basic or as luxurious as you want.
