Staying in a Great Wakering 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. Always check with the Great Wakering cottage owner before you take pets - although many are pet friendly. We often have late availability offers on holiday cottages for family or group bookings but you'll obviously get a restricted choice. 

Great Wakering Accomodation

The rates for Great Wakering cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August. 

Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. 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 Wakering accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

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 Wakering are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

Many owners, if they are local, will be pleased to give you tips on the best pubs and restaurants around, so make sure you ask and take advantage of the info! Great Wakering has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible. 

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

Families love cottage holidays because they can run to their own schedule, managing everyone's unique needs in the privacy of a comfortable home. When you're travelling as a family with young kids there are several things we recommend you take with you. 

Although its not to all parents' tastes, you can buy very cheap in-car DVD players to amuse the kids, and they can often be plugged into the standard power sockets when you arrive. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Great Wakering much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 

Sometimes just taking a few soft toys from home can make bedtime feel more comfortable in a strange house, and they don't need to take much space in the boot.
