Cottages for families and friends in and around Highbury

Many holiday cottages to discover!

In Highbury, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials 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 your family and friends are anything like ours, you should have a good book ready to fill those times when everyone's getting ready, or waiting for them to come back from a long walk. Lastly we think turning up with a few things to eat and drink is a good start to your holiday - there's nothing worse than grumpy kids or friends when its time to unpack, and a little chocolate or a cup of coffee can work wonders. 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. 

Highbury Accomodation

The rates for Highbury cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. The school summer holidays generally run from the middle of July to late August. 

Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. 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. 

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

Holiday Cottages

When you're searching for the best cottage for your stay, make sure that you've thought through the bedroom needs and allocation. If you're travelling to Highbury in a group of single people, are there enough beds in the bedrooms? 

Many Highbury visitors like to bring their pets (normally dogs) when they go on holiday. If the description of the Highbury cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. 

Don't forget to make the most of your Somerset holiday - none of us get enough of them! 

Families, Friends and More

There are few better ways to spend a holiday together as a family than in a holiday cottage where everyone truly is in one place, not dotted around a hotel. When you're travelling as a family with young kids there are several things we recommend you take with you. 

Its always a good idea to take swim suits even if you don't expect to be near a beach because you may well find a local swimming pool can be great fun. Check whether the cottage can supply cots or high chairs if you need them - you may be surprised how common this is in Highbury. 

You'll need to think about a few of their favourite books and games to help them feel at home in the cottage and settle in for a good nights sleep.
