Many holiday cottages to discover!

Combining a change from the norm with classic home comforts is an irresistible offer - and why cottage holidays have become so popular. The vast majority of our self-catering properties are cottages in rural towns and villages, but we do have some city based properties, many of which are apartments.

Large or small cottage, holiday makers have the freedom to eat in, eat out, stay in bed all day and generally come and go as they please - unlike a bed and breakfast. A larger number of cottages will accept pets (and for pets, read 'dogs') but you must check first. We often have late availability cottages to rent in Ormiston for all seasons - spring, summer, autumn and winter. 

Ormiston Accomodation

The rates for Ormiston cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Ormiston school summer holidays. 

Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Ormiston. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

You can decide what food and drink you want to consume, and you can choose when to sit down and eat it... or even stand up and eat it! For many people the idea of a Ormiston cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch. 

On the other hand, there's a growing proportion of visitors who use their time away from home to get fitter and try new things - such as mountain biking, horse riding or canoeing.
