Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

To make the best of your trip in DL3, we recommend you bring some essential items. 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. Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. We have stayed in many types of cottage, and we've decided we like both traditional and modern - it just depends on where we're going. 

Escape To DL3

In DL3, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. July and August are usually school summer holidays. 

Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

All About Cottages

When you choose your DL3 accommodation its worth bearing in mind the group of people staying with you. Is there agreement on an old fashioned cottage, or should you be looking for something contemporary with all the modern appliances? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the DL3 cottage. It's a good idea to ask the owner or agency whether you can take your pet inside the DL3 cottage. And let them know if it's not a dog! 

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

Cottages For Holidays

Self-catering always makes your holiday more relaxing in DL3. You take away some of the pressure that appears when staying in a hotel or b and b - you must eat your meals at this time, you must order from this menu. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in DL3. 

But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
