The best family rental holiday cottages in Manchester are typically small homes for rent that can be treated like your own home for the duration of your cottage holiday. We know many of our visitors like to take their dogs with them and many cottages now allow this. We often have late availability cottages to rent in Manchester for all seasons - spring, summer, autumn and winter. 

Manchester Accomodation

Besides the facilities within the Manchester cottages, our guests have been known to talk long walks, go horse riding and even more adventurous activities such as climbing. Great weather can never be guaranteed for every day, and there's obviously a chance of a downpour. 

When the weather takes a turn for the worse its a great time to stay indoors and play some classic family games. Cottage owners sometimes leave a few distractions around the property, such as local magazines or guidebooks. 

Or just ignore the rain and get on with whatever you had initially planned and be determined that a little water will not spoil the day.

Holiday Cottages

Our site does not make reservations directly and so we ask that any queries you have with the Manchester cottage are taken up with the owner or agency. It is of course possible that you need to cancel your Manchester holiday cottage so ensure you read the cancellation terms on the agency or owners website / contract. 

Many owners, if they are local, will be pleased to give you tips on the best pubs and restaurants around, so make sure you ask and take advantage of the info! Manchester is a great locations for a cottage holiday due to their proximity to local facilities and amenities. 

Some properties will ask for a security deposit before your arrival date - although this is required in a minority of accommodation and you will be advised at time of booking. 

Families, Friends and More

The fact that guests are on holiday in Manchester 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. When you're travelling as a family with young kids there are several things we recommend you take with you. 

Whether there's a swimming pool attached to the property, or in the nearby leisure centre, swimming trunks and swimming costumes are easy to forget. Check whether the cottage can supply cots or high chairs if you need them - you may be surprised how common this is in Manchester. 

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.
