Book early for Christmas

Although it’s currently still officially August, we are almost in September now.  If you are dreaming of a cottage break for Christmas or New Year don’t forget this is a popular time of year and trust us, cottages can get booked up quickly.  Do book ahead to secure your choice of cottage.  Leaving a booking to the last minute can mean you end up with less choice and hunting around at the last minute.  Do plan ahead and book early.  It often pays to get organised.  Although you can sometimes save by booking a late availability cottage, the choice is never as good as when you book early.
