Many holiday cottages to discover!
To make the best of your trip in Rotherham, we recommend you bring some essential items. Rainproof clothing and a light umbrella should be the first things to pack. The rain only comes when you are not prepared.
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. We love finding great new cottages, part of the fun of a holiday is not quite knowing where you're going!
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. You can never truly rely on the weather in Rotherham South Yorkshire or frankly anywhere in the UK.
When the weather takes a turn for the worse its a great time to stay indoors and play some classic family 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.
Our site does not make reservations directly and so we ask that any queries you have with the Rotherham cottage are taken up with the owner or agency. It is of course possible that you need to cancel your Rotherham holiday cottage so ensure you read the cancellation terms on the agency or owners website / contract.
Although you may not be familiar with the Rotherham area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. If you're travelling from a long way, you may not know much about Rotherham so we suggest a little research in advance to find the best attractions.
Some people ask whether bed linens and towels are provide, and in our experience linen is yes, towels can be no - but you should check with the owner / agency.
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 Rotherham holiday cottage - where everything there is designed to make your stay better! We've prepared a handy shortlist of things to remember for your holiday with kids, just to help the whole experience go well.
First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Rotherham will carry tear-free shampoo. Check whether the cottage can supply cots or high chairs if you need them - you may be surprised how common this is in Rotherham.
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.
