Many holiday cottages to discover!

To make the best of your trip in Horton, we recommend you bring some essential items. 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!

We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. 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. We find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Horton Accomodation

Throughout the Kent area rates will vary quite a bit throughout the year - clearly the winter is the cheapest time. July and August are usually Kent school summer holidays. 

If you want to avoid half-term in the summer, draw a line through the first two weeks of June. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking. 

Many cottage owners have signed themselves up with national agencies to help with the marketing and administration, which also helps keep standards to a certain level.

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 Horton in a group of single people, are there enough beds in the bedrooms? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Horton cottage. It's a good idea to ask the owner or agency whether you can take your pet inside the Horton cottage. And let them know if it's not a dog! 

Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a Kent cottage found through us! 

Families, Friends and More

The fact that guests are on holiday in Horton in a rental home together, sometimes with three generations in larger rental holiday homes, brings a much different atmosphere to the cottage break or holiday. Young children can make your stay even more fun, and we have a few suggestions of things to bring. 

Although its not to all parents' tastes, you can buy very cheap in-car DVD players to amuse the kids, and they can often be plugged into the standard power sockets when you arrive. 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. 

And last, but not least, make sure you take your camera to capture the magic of a great fun family holiday before the kids grow up and start their own families!
