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. And then we always make sure we have good supplies with us when we arrive so that we can sit down and have a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of cake before we start that boring unpacking! 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. 

Great Hinton Accomodation

Great Hinton holiday accommodation rates increase in peak season, which is generally around the times of the school summer holidays. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August. 

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. 

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 Great Hinton accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

All the booking agents we work with have good customer service teams, so please contact them if you have additional questions or encounter any problems. Some of the best cottages in Great Hinton are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

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

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 Hinton. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. 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 Great Hinton. 

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.
