Many holiday cottages to discover!
Whatever time you go to Dundee, we'd like to suggest some things to take to improve your stay. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!
We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. 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. 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.
Getting outside is one of the great benefits of staying in the countryside since so many of us live in urban centres where the air is polluted and greenery is a rarity. Trusting the sun to shine every day is rather optimistic in Dundee regardless of the time of year.
We live in a country where we're no stranger to rain and preparing for the inevitable downpour is always a good idea. Cottage owners sometimes leave a few distractions around the property, such as local magazines or guidebooks.
Whatever you decide, we're sure it will be a memorable part of your cottage holiday in Dundee.
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 Dundee area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. Dundee has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible.
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
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.
Although its not to all parents' tastes, you can buy very cheap in-car DVD players to amuse the kids, and they can often be plugged into the standard power sockets when you arrive. If the children are really young, don't forget to take nappies and / or a potty as you may find it harder to buy these at your destination.
And last, but not least, make sure you take your camera to capture the magic of a great fun family holiday before the kids grow up and start their own families!
