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. There are obviously local stores that can supply you with all the food you need, but we always like to arrive with coffee, tea bags, a pint of milk, a bar of chocolate and some bread and butter for the toaster - it's good to get the energy up after a long journey. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay. 

Alfriston Accomodation

Throughout the East Sussex area rates will vary quite a bit throughout the year - clearly the winter is the cheapest time. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Alfriston 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 becoming less likely to book the best cottages last minute, but by no means impossible. We recommend you give it a try. 

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 Alfriston accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

Whether you're going away with friends or family to Alfriston, you'll want to consider the type of accommodation you book. Do you need twin beds or double beds, can the kids share a room, will your friends all want separate bedrooms? 

If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Alfriston with you. Many places will accept dogs, but it's always a good idea to double check in advance if it's not mentioned on the booking website. 

Enjoy your holiday, we're syure you deserve it. The world moves so very fast and it's great to take a break. 

Families, Friends and More

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

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. A large number of our visitors like to use their stay as an opportunity to just put their feet up, gaze at the scenery, take an afternoon nap, and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Just taking it easy in Alfriston. 

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.
