Many holiday cottages to discover!

If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Handsworth, we suggest a few key items to take along. You can never be sure of the weather, so take something to protect you from the rain - ideally something that can be packed in a rucksack just in case.

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. Finally you should take a few initial supplies, such as tea, coffee, milk, bread and some cheese. Of course you can usually buy them locally but it's easy to forget and there's nothing better than a cup of tea before you start unpacking. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay. 

Handsworth Accomodation

Cottage prices in Handsworth will range from high to low throughout the year, but clearly the summer months will be the most expensive as remand increases. The summer holiday period (for schools) runs from mid-July through the whole of August. 

Half term in the summer extends across the first half of June, as different schools break up at different times. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking. 

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 Handsworth accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

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 Handsworth with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Handsworth cottage. 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. 

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

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Handsworth. We like the freedom of eating meals when we want. There's something wrong with taking a holiday and then finding out that you have to get up early or you miss the breakfast you've paid for. 

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! 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 Handsworth. 

But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
