Hotel or Cottage?
When visiting the UK, the majority of people choose to stay in hotels however have you ever thought about staying in a Country cottage instead? Probably not yet this form of accommodation is starting to take off slowly. A holiday to the country can provide a great escape from the busy city as many of the cottages that do well have surroundings of nothing but tranquillity.
Everyone has different needs and that is why many cottages offer different types of packages, some just for weekend and week breaks and others you can stay in a cottage the whole summer or the whole winter.
It is recommended that you carry out research online before booking anything, things you should be looking to find out is how far are the local shops? Does it have double glazing windows? What comes with the package? Where are the nearest places of interest and how do I get to them?
Why would I choose a Cottage over a hotel? There are several advantages that a cottage has one of the main points is the location and surroundings. Cottages have an advantage of being set in beautiful areas, with gardens, lakes, streams, tress and wildlife. This makes them perfect for the likes of bird watching and walking holidays. Of course there is a downside many cottages are self catering so this means you have to clean up, cook, wash yourself and with cottages some are located so far out they do not have interest access and bad mobile phone reception so communication can become a problem.
Staying in a cottage is just like any other holiday carry out the research and find a suitable area to stay in. The short answer is neither of them are better than each other they both appeal to different types of people.
