Many holiday cottages to discover!

In Membury, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. 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. 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're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Membury Accomodation

Cottage prices in Membury will range from high to low throughout the year, but clearly the summer months will be the most expensive as remand increases. The summer holiday period (for schools) runs from mid-July through the whole of 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. 

Some of the best cottages in the UK are fiercely independent and have incredibly high standards, and more recently the rise of agencies has helped increase standards right across the board.

Holiday Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Do you need twin beds or double beds, can the kids share a room, will your friends all want separate bedrooms? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Membury cottage. 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. 

Wherever you stay, whether it's in Membury or elsewhere, we hope you have a fabulous holiday! 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering always makes your holiday more relaxing in Membury. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

Of course it also means that you can skip a meal in the accommodation and just eat out - perhaps grab some fish and chips, or maybe a pizza or burger. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Membury. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
