Many holiday cottages to discover!
Cottage holidays are becoming more and more synonymous with the Great British Break, which is why we have created this site. We are committed to offering the best possible choice of properties around Chatham - please take advantage of all the options and find the cottage that is best for you!
Your chosen cottage should be clean and tidy on arrival, and if it is not you should inform the owner or agency immediately so that they can sort it out swiftly. We know many of our visitors like to take their dogs with them and many cottages now allow this. We often have late availability offers on holiday cottages for family or group bookings but you'll obviously get a restricted choice.
In Chatham, 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 Chatham school summer holidays.
Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around 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.
More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.
Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Is there agreement on an old fashioned cottage, or should you be looking for something contemporary with all the modern appliances?
If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Chatham with you. 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.
Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a Caerphilly cottage found through us!
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. Young children can make your stay even more fun, and we have a few suggestions of things to bring.
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. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Chatham much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions.
Sometimes just taking a few soft toys from home can make bedtime feel more comfortable in a strange house, and they don't need to take much space in the boot.
