GL8 Accomodation

In GL8, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. 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 GL8 accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

Before you book that 16th Century thatched roof cottage with low ceilings, you may want to ask the tallest people in your group/family whether the olde worlds charm outweighs the pain of bumping heads on beams. Is there agreement on an old fashioned cottage, or should you be looking for something contemporary with all the modern appliances? 

Dog owners often like to spend their holidays in the UK so that they can take their four legged friends with them. We always suggest that you check with the owner if there are no pet details listed. And even if there are, it can be a good idea to let them know so they can put out a bowl of water for your dog's arrival. 

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

We think that self-catering is the best way to holiday in GL8. You take away some of the pressure that appears when staying in a hotel or b and b - you must eat your meals at this time, you must order from this menu. 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in GL8. 

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.
