Many holiday cottages to discover!
If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Stockport, we suggest a few key items to take along. Rainproof clothing and a light umbrella should be the first things to pack. The rain only comes when you are not prepared.
If you have a DVD player in the Greater Manchester cottage, definitely take a few great movies. It's so enjoyable to curl up in the evening and watch a classic film. 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 have stayed in many types of cottage, and we've decided we like both traditional and modern - it just depends on where we're going.
Benefits of staying in a county cottage include being able to jump out of the front door and take part in outdoor pursuits from walking to horse riding, and from fishing to paddling. Great weather can never be guaranteed for every day, and there's obviously a chance of a downpour.
When the weather takes a turn for the worse its a great time to stay indoors and play some classic family games. With wi-fi more and more common (but don't expect urban speeds) you could even download a few great tv shows or games.
Alternatively get back in the car, drive to a local pub, and snuggle up for the day in front of a fire and a couple of pints.
Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Are you looking for a quaint old stone cottage in Stockport with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating?
Most dog owners like to take their four legged friends away with them on trips to Stockport. Many places will accept dogs, but it's always a good idea to double check in advance if it's not mentioned on the booking website.
Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a Greater Manchester cottage found through us!
Families, Friends and More
Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Stockport. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready.
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! For many people the idea of a Stockport cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch.
For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
