Many holiday cottages to discover!

If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Torfaen, we suggest a few key items to take along. 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 you like watching films and there's a DVD facility in the cottage then it's a good idea to stock up on some good movies so you can spend a couple of nights enjoying the classics. Finally you should take a few initial supplies, such as tea, coffee, milk, bread and some cheese. Of course you can usually buy them locally but it's easy to forget and there's nothing better than a cup of tea before you start unpacking. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay. 

Torfaen Accomodation

The rates for Torfaen cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. July and August are usually school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. 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. 

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

Holiday Cottages

In the unlikely event that you are not delighted with your holiday cottage in Torfaen please email or call the agency you made the booking with. Some of the best cottages in Torfaen are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

We've often found the properties have a list of nearby places to grab a bite or a beer - and if the owners are nearby they may filter down the recommendations based on your needs. Torfaen cottages range in size and price, but based on our knowledge of the cottage agencies and owners, all should be good quality. 

We hope you have a really enjoyable holiday in Torfaen and remember us next year when it comes to finding the next great cottage. 

Families, Friends and More

There are few better ways to spend a holiday together as a family than in a holiday cottage where everyone truly is in one place, not dotted around a hotel. When you're so focused on the final destination, its easy to forget to pack some of the basics, so here are a few tips. 

Whether there's a swimming pool attached to the property, or in the nearby leisure centre, swimming trunks and swimming costumes are easy to forget. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Torfaen much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 

And last, but not least, make sure you take your camera to capture the magic of a great fun family holiday before the kids grow up and start their own families!
