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. 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. 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. 

GL17 Accomodation

Cottage prices in GL17 will range from high to low throughout the year, but clearly the summer months will be the most expensive as remand increases. July and August are usually school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

Some of the best cottages in the UK are fiercely independent and have incredibly high standards, and more recently the rise of agencies has helped increase standards right across the board.

Holiday Cottages

In the unlikely event that you are not delighted with your holiday cottage in GL17 please email or call the agency you made the booking with. It is of course possible that you need to cancel your GL17 holiday cottage so ensure you read the cancellation terms on the agency or owners website / contract. 

Although you may not be familiar with the GL17 area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. GL17 cottages range in size and price, but based on our knowledge of the cottage agencies and owners, all should be good quality. 

Some people ask whether bed linens and towels are provide, and in our experience linen is yes, towels can be no - but you should check with the owner / agency. 

Families, Friends and More

There are few better ways to spend a holiday together as a family than in a holiday cottage where everyone truly is in one place, not dotted around a hotel. 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 GL17 will carry tear-free shampoo. Snacks for the car can make the trip to GL17 much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 

Clothes for the full range of weather; just because you don't think that it looks good outside in the rain it doesn't mean that the little ones will agree.
