Many holiday cottages to discover!
For a great stay in the UK with family or friends, holiday cottages are the best way to relax and forget about the stresses of normal life. The vast majority of our self-catering properties are cottages in rural towns and villages, but we do have some city based properties, many of which are apartments.
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. A larger number of cottages will accept pets (and for pets, read 'dogs') but you must check first. Our great value holiday cottages to rent in Southend are sometimes available for rent for a weekend, week, fortnight, two weeks or even longer.
Cottage prices in Southend will range from high to low throughout the year, but clearly the summer months will be the most expensive as remand increases. The summer holiday period (for schools) runs from mid-July through the whole of August.
Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking.
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.
We deal with some of the best cottage agencies in the country so we're confident that they will resolve any small issues you may encounter. Nearly all country cottages have free parking near the property, but you may find the urban cottages to have more parking restrictions.
Owners with often leave instructions on how to use the appliances in the property, as well as some suggestions on the nearest shop to buy a pint of milk etc. Southend Oxfordshire cottages in are not just good value, but also offer the benefits of home comforts versus a hotel.
Some properties will ask for a security deposit before your arrival date - although this is required in a minority of accommodation and you will be advised at time of booking.
Families, Friends and More
Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Southend. 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. For many people the idea of a Southend cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch.
On the other hand, there's a growing proportion of visitors who use their time away from home to get fitter and try new things - such as mountain biking, horse riding or canoeing.
