Many holiday cottages to discover!

Whenever you're travelling to Manton, there are a few things you should always take with you. You can never be sure of the weather, so take something to protect you from the rain - ideally something that can be packed in a rucksack just in case.

If your family and friends are anything like ours, you should have a good book ready to fill those times when everyone's getting ready, or waiting for them to come back from a long walk. 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. We find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Manton Accomodation

Children love to get out of the cottage (not because the cottages aren't great, but because its fun to play outside!) and this is a great benefit of staying in a country cottage. Banking on non-stop sunny Wiltshire weather, however, can be a little short-sighted. 

Although its great to be outside in Manton, you can often have just as much fun with your friends or family if you stay in and play some games. Many cottages now have DVD players so maybe its worth taking a few a classic movies with you. 

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

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Are you looking for a quaint old stone cottage in Manton with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Manton cottage. It's a good idea to ask the owner or agency whether you can take your pet inside the Manton cottage. And let them know if it's not a dog! 

Don't forget to make the most of your Wiltshire holiday - none of us get enough of them! 

Families, Friends and More

The best part of going on holiday with a family is the sense of comfort you all get when walking into a Manton holiday cottage - where everything there is designed to make your stay better! Youngsters are always excited about self-catering breaks, but we've collated a short list of things to help it go smoothly! 

If your kids ideal break is to be locked in their room with a video games machine, then prepare the outside adventure with bikes, kites and other stuff to get them out having fun. A lot of the cottages we've researched do have some basic infant facilities such as cots and high chairs, so definitely ask if you need them. 

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.
