Activity holidays with self-catering accommodation

Because of their location, stays at certain holiday cottages lend themselves to particular sports and activities. A lake or river nearby means that there are opportunities for boating, canoeing and fishing. Canoes are sometimes provided free. Country cottage owners in locations recommended for cycling may have bicycles for guests to borrow. The high ridges in the Peak District are ideal for hang gliding.

Some cottage owners also arrange activities for their guests. These could be anything from the usual such as painting, cookery courses, walking, and horseriding to the unexpected such as meditation, sky diving or scuba diving. People looking for a family self-catering holiday may prefer to book cottages with a games room so that the children can busy themselves playing table tennis or pool in the evenings.

Activities are always optional when booking self catering breaks at these holiday cottages which may suit families and groups because different people can elect to follow different activities, or simply stay at the cottage and chill out with a good book.

The following pages list holiday cottages and country cottages where you can find the activities shown. Click on the pages to view each activity. Discuss the activity or sport on offer with the holiday cottage owners directly.

Cottage holidays with sports and activities

 

It pays to read the description of local attractions, things to do and places to visit for each cottage. There are holiday cottages in or near national parks which are well-known areas for walking, caving, mountain biking and similar outdoor pursuits.

Regionally, there are many more such as Thetford Forest in Norfolk and various other outdoor recreation areas where is is possible to try your hand at aerial challenges up in the canopy, orienteering and activities organised by the forestry commission.

The holiday cottage owner can provide you with a breadth of information about the potential their area offers and could be your first port of call when planning an activity holiday.
