Whenever you're travelling to Heckmondwike, there are a few things you should always take with you. Preparing for a little rain is always a good plan. An umbrella and an anorak or rain coat can get everyone smiling even on the worse days.

If you have a DVD player in the West Yorkshire 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. 

Heckmondwike Accomodation

The rates for Heckmondwike cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Heckmondwike 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. 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 Heckmondwike accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.

Holiday Cottages

We deal with some of the best cottage agencies in the country so we're confident that they will resolve any small issues you may encounter. Should you need to cancel your accommodation, again we ask you to contact the agent or owner since we cannot talk to them on your behalf. 

The cottage owners may leave some hints for good places to visit nearby and on occasion we've even found that they'll suggest a specific pub or restaurant where you can get a discount. Heckmondwike 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

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Heckmondwike. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Heckmondwike. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
