Discover the best cottages available in and around Barking

Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

In Barking , whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. You can never be sure of the weather, so take something to protect you from the rain - ideally something that can be packed in a rucksack just in case.

If you like watching films and there's a DVD facility in the cottage then it's a good idea to stock up on some good movies so you can spend a couple of nights enjoying the classics. There are obviously local stores that can supply you with all the food you need, but we always like to arrive with coffee, tea bags, a pint of milk, a bar of chocolate and some bread and butter for the toaster - it's good to get the energy up after a long journey. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Escape To Barking

The best cottages in the area are spotlessly clean, with great facilities and attentive owners eager to please their guests. Cottage owners and agencies have increased their standards quite significantly throughout the last decade. 

For the traveller, this is clearly great news and although inevitably there have been price rises, we think it's for the better overall. If you do discover that your Barking holiday cottage is not up to the standards you expect, immediately contact the agency or owner. 

Its always better to get things addressed early on so that they don't bug you for the whole holiday.

All About Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. If you're travelling to Barking in a group of single people, are there enough beds in the bedrooms? 

If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Barking with you. Not all places will welcome pets so please make sure that it's either clearly marked on the booking website, or if not drop a quick line to the owner to make sure. 

Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a cottage found through us! 

Cottages For Holidays

We think that self-catering is the best way to holiday in Barking . We like the freedom of eating meals when we want. There's something wrong with taking a holiday and then finding out that you have to get up early or you miss the breakfast you've paid for. 

And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. A large number of our visitors like to use their stay as an opportunity to just put their feet up, gaze at the scenery, take an afternoon nap, and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Just taking it easy in Barking . 

For others it's an opportunity to get more active, from mountain biking to cross-country running. If you're over 60, we recommend the more relaxed approach!
