Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

In Egdon , whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!

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. Lastly we think turning up with a few things to eat and drink is a good start to your holiday - there's nothing worse than grumpy kids or friends when its time to unpack, and a little chocolate or a cup of coffee can work wonders. 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 Egdon

The rates for Egdon cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

In recent years there has been an increase in the size of cottage agencies. Generally speaking that means that someone is always checking the quality of Egdon accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

All About Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Is there agreement on an old fashioned cottage, or should you be looking for something contemporary with all the modern appliances? 

If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Egdon with you. Many places will accept dogs, but it's always a good idea to double check in advance if it's not mentioned on the booking website. 

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

Cottages For Holidays

For many people the perfect UK holiday is staying in a cottage, and it's clearly an increasing trend. It just seems a little pointless to fly half way around the world when there are so many great places to see in Egdon . 

Getting away from the boring day to day life at home can be fantastic for families or friends alike. We already have enough rules and timetables in our lives, and a cottage holiday provides total freedom. 

You don't have to eat at set times with set menus, get out of the room by a certain time or tiptoe around other guests late at night.
