Staying in a Ellesmere holiday cottage can be a perfect way to take a break as you can forget about household chores and focus on having fun, or a relaxing break. Pet-friendly cottages in Ellesmere are on the rise however we do recommend that you ask in advance - unless it's stated on the booking details. We can help if you're looking for a holiday cottage or other accommodation in Ellesmere to stay in with your family for a week or two or somewhere in Ellesmere to stay with friends over a long weekend. 

Ellesmere Accomodation

The rates for Ellesmere cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. The school summer holidays generally run from the middle of July to late August. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking. 

Many cottage owners have signed themselves up with national agencies to help with the marketing and administration, which also helps keep standards to a certain level.

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. Nearly all country cottages have free parking near the property, but you may find the urban cottages to have more parking restrictions. 

The cottage owners may leave some hints for good places to visit nearby and on occasion we've even found that they'll suggest a specific pub or restaurant where you can get a discount. If you're travelling from a long way, you may not know much about Ellesmere so we suggest a little research in advance to find the best attractions. 

Some properties will ask for a security deposit before your arrival date - although this is required in a minority of accommodation and you will be advised at time of booking. 

Families, Friends and More

The fact that guests are on holiday in Ellesmere 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. Youngsters are always excited about self-catering breaks, but we've collated a short list of things to help it go smoothly! 

First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Ellesmere will carry tear-free shampoo. A lot of the cottages we've researched do have some basic infant facilities such as cots and high chairs, so definitely ask if you need them. 

You'll need to think about a few of their favourite books and games to help them feel at home in the cottage and settle in for a good nights sleep.
