We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. 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 find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Escape To Saffron Walden

In Saffron Walden, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August. 

Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. It's recommended to make an early booking to ensure your date, especially during high season, but it's not impossible to find a last minute opportunity. 

Some of the best cottages in the UK are fiercely independent and have incredibly high standards, and more recently the rise of agencies has helped increase standards right across the board.

All About Cottages

When you choose your Saffron Walden 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? 

Many Saffron Walden visitors like to bring their pets (normally dogs) when they go on holiday. If the description of the Saffron Walden cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. 

Wherever you stay, whether it's in Saffron Walden or elsewhere, we hope you have a fabulous holiday! 

Cottages For Holidays

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Saffron Walden. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready. 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! We know many people who consider a holiday cottage as the perfect way to wind down after a busy urban lifestyle - sleep in, take lazy walks through the countryside and take more time over meals. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
