Staying in a Southend holiday cottage can be a perfect way to take a break as you can forget about household chores and focus on having fun, or a relaxing break. We know many of our visitors like to take their dogs with them and many cottages now allow this. We can help if you're looking for a holiday cottage or other accommodation in Southend to stay in with your family for a week or two or somewhere in Southend to stay with friends over a long weekend. 

Southend Accomodation

Children love to get out of the cottage (not because the cottages aren't great, but because its fun to play outside!) and this is a great benefit of staying in a country cottage. Banking on non-stop sunny Oxfordshire weather, however, can be a little short-sighted. 

If you find yourself trapped by the rain in Southend you should pull out a board game, a good book or perhaps a game of charades! If there's a TV in the property then you can sit around a watch re-runs of quiz shows, comedies and whatever else is on. 

Or just ignore the rain and get on with whatever you had initially planned and be determined that a little water will not spoil the day.

Holiday Cottages

As a reminder, we do not actually take the cottage bookings, we simply connect your with the agencies or owners. Some of the best cottages in Southend are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

Although you may not be familiar with the Southend area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. Southend Oxfordshire cottages in are not just good value, but also offer the benefits of home comforts versus a hotel. 

Some people ask whether bed linens and towels are provide, and in our experience linen is yes, towels can be no - but you should check with the owner / agency. 

Families, Friends and More

The fact that guests are on holiday in Southend in a rental home together, sometimes with three generations in larger rental holiday homes, brings a much different atmosphere to the cottage break or holiday. Youngsters are always excited about self-catering breaks, but we've collated a short list of things to help it go smoothly! 

Whether there's a swimming pool attached to the property, or in the nearby leisure centre, swimming trunks and swimming costumes are easy to forget. A long car journey can turn the most engaged children into bored zombies, so take some snacks and have a few games ready to play. 

You'll need to think about a few of their favourite books and games to help them feel at home in the cottage and settle in for a good nights sleep.
