Great Barrow Accomodation

In Great Barrow, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. July and August are usually Cheshire school summer holidays. 

Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. It's becoming less likely to book the best cottages last minute, but by no means impossible. We recommend you give it a try. 

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

As a reminder, we do not actually take the cottage bookings, we simply connect your with the agencies or owners. Some of the best cottages in Great Barrow are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

Owners with often leave instructions on how to use the appliances in the property, as well as some suggestions on the nearest shop to buy a pint of milk etc. If you're travelling from a long way, you may not know much about Great Barrow 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

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

You can decide what food and drink you want to consume, and you can choose when to sit down and eat it... or even stand up and eat it! We know many people who consider a holiday cottage as the perfect way to wind down after a busy urban lifestyle - sleep in, take lazy walks through the countryside and take more time over meals. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
