Many holiday cottages to discover!
Whenever you're travelling to Dundee, there are a few things you should always take with you. Preparing for a little rain is always a good plan. An umbrella and an anorak or rain coat can get everyone smiling even on the worse days.
If your family and friends are anything like ours, you should have a good book ready to fill those times when everyone's getting ready, or waiting for them to come back from a long walk. Lastly we think turning up with a few things to eat and drink is a good start to your holiday - there's nothing worse than grumpy kids or friends when its time to unpack, and a little chocolate or a cup of coffee can work wonders. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay.
The rates for Dundee cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August.
If you want to avoid half-term in the summer, draw a line through the first two weeks of June. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking.
In recent years there has been an increase in the size of cottage agencies. Generally speaking that means that someone is always checking the quality of Dundee accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.
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 Dundee 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. Dundee has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible.
We hope you have a really enjoyable holiday in Dundee and remember us next year when it comes to finding the next great Dundee City cottage.
Families, Friends and More
The fact that guests are on holiday in Dundee 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. We've prepared a handy shortlist of things to remember for your holiday with kids, just to help the whole experience go well.
First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Dundee will carry tear-free shampoo. Check whether the cottage can supply cots or high chairs if you need them - you may be surprised how common this is in Dundee.
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.
