Many holiday cottages to discover!

In HX4, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!

If you like watching films and there's a DVD facility in the cottage then it's a good idea to stock up on some good movies so you can spend a couple of nights enjoying the classics. 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 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. 

HX4 Accomodation

In HX4, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the HX4 school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. It's recommended to make an early booking to ensure your date, especially during high season, but it's not impossible to find a last minute opportunity. 

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

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. If you're travelling to HX4 in a group of single people, are there enough beds in the bedrooms? 

Dog owners often like to spend their holidays in the UK so that they can take their four legged friends with them. If the description of the HX4 cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. 

We want you to have a great holiday so we wish you the best of luck finding your perfect accomodation. 

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. Young children can make your stay even more fun, and we have a few suggestions of things to bring. 

Whether there's a swimming pool attached to the property, or in the nearby leisure centre, swimming trunks and swimming costumes are easy to forget. A lot of the cottages we've researched do have some basic infant facilities such as cots and high chairs, so definitely ask if you need them. 

Finally, remember to take your camera - there's nothing better than seeing smiling, happy faces running around and you'll want to capture them.
