Getting outside is one of the great benefits of staying in the countryside since so many of us live in urban centres where the air is polluted and greenery is a rarity. Banking on non-stop sunny British weather, however, can be a little short-sighted in Lincolnshire. We live in a country where we're no stranger to rain and preparing for the inevitable downpour is always a good idea. With wi-fi more and more common (but don't expect urban speeds) you could even download a few great tv shows or games. Alternatively get back in the car, drive to a local pub, and snuggle up for the day in front of a fire and a couple of pints.
Families love cottage holidays because they can run to their own schedule, managing everyone's unique needs in the privacy of a comfortable home. Youngsters are always excited about self-catering breaks, but we've collated a short list of things to help it go smoothly! 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. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Alford much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 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.
USING THE SITE
There are many companies that offer a range of holiday cottages you can directly book, but our approach is different - we have collated thousands of cottages from different owners and operators and we organise them to help you choose.
When you find a cottage you like we will direct you to the booking agent and you can make your reservation directly with them.
