Travelling abroad and staying in Europe is certainly not cheap nowadays and in many cases the cost of eating out and enjoying days out is higher in Europe than at home in the UK. Understandably more and more people are now choosing to holiday in the UK or are choosing cheaper destinations overseas such as Turkey or Poland which still offer comparatively good value for money for Brits. Many of us in England have never been to some of the countries within the UK such as Scotland, Wales and Ireland and each has something special to offer visitors. If you decide to holiday in the UK this year then a cottage or self catering break could be a good choice. If you shop around and get competitively priced self catering accommodation, you can very often save by eating in and sharing accommodation as a group. There are some excellent country cottage break offers around currently. See our special offer section to find out more about available offers.
