It is anticipated that an increased number of people will holiday at home in 2013. It is often possible to pay a small deposit to secure your ideal self-catering cottage ahead of the crowds. The highest demand is for cottages with those little extras such as swimming pools, saunas and spas. These may be independent rural cottages or part of a cottage complex or holiday park. Activity holidays with self-catering accommodation ensure that children are safely occupied all day long.
