Cottages in Southend

Properties in Southend, Berkshire


We love cottage holidays and Berkshire has some really great destinations and properties to rent, for families or groups of friends. And booking your Southend cottage couldn't be simpler, just narrow down the accommodation you're looking for and click on the one you like the most! Cottage owners expect you to leave the property in the same condition as you found it - clean and tidy - and will almost always provide cleaning materials for you. Always check with the Southend cottage owner before you take pets - although many are pet friendly. We often have late availability cottages to rent in Southend for all seasons - spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Besides the facilities within the Southend cottages, our guests have been known to talk long walks, go horse riding and even more adventurous activities such as climbing. Great weather can never be guaranteed for every day, and there's obviously a chance of a downpour. When the weather takes a turn for the worse its a great time to stay indoors and play some classic family games. Cottage owners sometimes leave a few distractions around the property, such as local magazines or guidebooks. 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.
All the booking agents we work with have good customer service teams, so please contact them if you have additional questions or encounter any problems. Everyone owner or lettings agency can have a slightly different cancellation policy so please be sure to check before you make your reservation. 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. If you're travelling from a long way, you may not know much about Southend so we suggest a little research in advance to find the best attractions. A few properties have access to outdoor swimming pools, but please remember that these are often only accessible during the summer months, and that you are responsible for you own safety!

The best part of going on holiday with a family is the sense of comfort you all get when walking into a Southend holiday cottage - where everything there is designed to make your stay better! When you're travelling as a family with young kids there are several things we recommend you take with you. First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Southend will carry tear-free shampoo. A lot of the cottages we've researched do have some basic infant facilities such as cots and high chairs, so definitely ask if you need them. Sometimes just taking a few soft toys from home can make bedtime feel more comfortable in a strange house, and they don't need to take much space in the boot.
