If you like watching films and there's a DVD facility in the cottage then it's a good idea to stock up on some good movies so you can spend a couple of nights enjoying the classics. Finally you should take a few initial supplies, such as tea, coffee, milk, bread and some cheese. Of course you can usually buy them locally but it's easy to forget and there's nothing better than a cup of tea before you start unpacking. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Breckland Accomodation

In Breckland, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Breckland 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. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Holiday Cottages

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. Some of the best cottages in Breckland are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

We've often found the properties have a list of nearby places to grab a bite or a beer - and if the owners are nearby they may filter down the recommendations based on your needs. Breckland cottages range in size and price, but based on our knowledge of the cottage agencies and owners, all should be good quality. 

If you are travelling from abroad, please make sure that you have the correct visas (if required) and all the passports are up to date. 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Breckland. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

You can decide what food and drink you want to consume, and you can choose when to sit down and eat it... or even stand up and eat it! Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Breckland. 

But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
