Many holiday cottages to discover!

Whatever time you go to Plymouth, we'd like to suggest some things to take to improve your stay. Preparing for a little rain is always a good plan. An umbrella and an anorak or rain coat can get everyone smiling even on the worse days.

We think a good book is another essential. Not just an opportunity to catch up on your reading, but also to pass the time waiting for everyone else to get themselves ready, or wait out the rain! Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay. 

Plymouth Accomodation

In Plymouth, 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 Plymouth school summer holidays. 

Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

Holiday Cottages

When you're searching for the best cottage for your stay, make sure that you've thought through the bedroom needs and allocation. Is there agreement on an old fashioned cottage, or should you be looking for something contemporary with all the modern appliances? 

Most dog owners like to take their four legged friends away with them on trips to Plymouth. 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. 

We want you to have a great Devon holiday so we wish you the best of luck finding your perfect accomodation. 

Families, Friends and More

There are many benefits to a self-catering holiday in Plymouth. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. A large number of our visitors like to use their stay as an opportunity to just put their feet up, gaze at the scenery, take an afternoon nap, and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Just taking it easy in Plymouth. 

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