Many holiday cottages to discover!

If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Altnagelvin, we suggest a few key items 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 have a DVD player in the cottage, definitely take a few great movies. It's so enjoyable to curl up in the evening and watch a classic film. 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 find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Altnagelvin Accomodation

Altnagelvin holiday accommodation rates increase in peak season, which is generally around the times of the school summer holidays. The summer holiday period (for schools) runs from mid-July through the whole of August. 

Half term in the summer extends across the first half of June, as different schools break up at different times. 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. 

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 Altnagelvin accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

Before you book that 16th Century thatched roof cottage with low ceilings, you may want to ask the tallest people in your group/family whether the olde worlds charm outweighs the pain of bumping heads on beams. If you have young kids in the party you may want to think twice about open fires, and of course some of the oldest cottages may have lower ceilings than those you are used to. 

Most dog owners like to take their four legged friends away with them on trips to Altnagelvin. It's a good idea to ask the owner or agency whether you can take your pet inside the Altnagelvin 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! 

Families, Friends and More

There are many benefits to a self-catering holiday in Altnagelvin. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

Of course it also means that you can skip a meal in the accommodation and just eat out - perhaps grab some fish and chips, or maybe a pizza or burger. Waking up without the alarm, cooking a nice hearty breakfast, perhaps sitting by the river for a spot of fishing or just reading a book. 

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