Large or small cottage, holiday makers have the freedom to eat in, eat out, stay in bed all day and generally come and go as they please - unlike a bed and breakfast. Dog owners favour cottage holidays because many properties will not just allow pets but provide a few basic supplies. We often have late availability offers on holiday cottages for family or group bookings but you'll obviously get a restricted choice. 

Bourne Accomodation

The rates for Bourne cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Bourne school summer holidays. 

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. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

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 Bourne. We always suggest that you check with the owner if there are no pet details listed. And even if there are, it can be a good idea to let them know so they can put out a bowl of water for your dog's arrival. 

Don't forget to make the most of your Somerset holiday - none of us get enough of them! 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Bourne. No worrying about getting to the dining room in time, either before the hotel declares that breakfast is over, or trying to fit in with other b and b guests. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. For many people the idea of a Bourne 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. 

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