Alton Accomodation

In Alton, 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. 

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. 

Many cottage owners have signed themselves up with national agencies to help with the marketing and administration, which also helps keep standards to a certain level.
