Looking for peace and quiet on a cottage break in 2021?
With 2020 behind us and the coronavirus pandemic stretching on and on with another lockdown in place currently, many of us want to book a tranquil cottage break to look forward to later on this year where you can recharge, unwind and de-stress. Some holidaymakers are booking up cottages for summer already, as the best properties tend to get booked up early and it can be important to have a break to look forward to, whereas other people are preferring to wait until we are out of lockdown before booking a summer holiday.
Tranquil Holiday Ideas 2021
Cottages with Views
Who doesn’t love a holiday home with a view? Renting a holiday cottage where you can gaze out to beautiful views can be good for the soul. Whether for you it’s important to look out to fields, farmlands, river, lake or sea, Country Cottages Online features a great selection of holiday homes with views for you to choose from:
De-stress and unwind with a farmstay holiday. Enjoy a taste of the good life, when you choose to holiday surrounded by fields and farmlands. Some holiday homes can be found on working farms where there are working animals like sheep and cows, whereas others are on arable farms where crops are grown. At other farm locations, there may be a smallholding with a small collection of animals like chickens, where you may even be able to enjoy a fresh supply of eggs during your stay. Farm holidays can be particularly popular with families, but also with couples who want to escape for a taste of the good life.
If you truly want to escape from it all, renting a remote holiday cottage can make perfect sense. Hideaway and discover a far-off part of the UK, where you can enjoy exploring the local area without hoards of other people to contend with. Few locations are more tranquil than remote getaways where you can truly get away from it all, relax, unwind and escape.
Expected to be in high demand this summer are Britain’s rural retreats. Some rural retreats are nestled deep in the countryside, in national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty or on edge of village locations. Whether you want to rent a country cottage, a barn conversion, a holiday lodge or a farm cottage, the appeal of the countryside and immersing yourself in nature and tranquillity is hard to beat.
Wherever you are in terms of planning your summer break, holidaymakers can be reassured that last year, despite the start of pandemic being in March, cottage holidays from July to September were possible in many parts of the UK. Although we’re not out of the woods yet, holidaymakers can be reassured by news of the vaccine roll out and government predictions that the UK may be able to return to a more normal way of life hopefully by the summer. These are uncertain times we are living in, and some cottage owners and agencies are offering more flexible booking terms to reflect that. Check with owners and agencies about how flexible their terms are before booking.
If you’re someone planning to book a break in 2021, you may be looking for ideas and inspiration on some of the best places to stay. With all of the stress the pandemic has created, booking a break somewhere tranquil and relaxing could be more important than ever this year. Below are some of our picks of the best types of holiday rentals for tranquil holidays.
We hope we’ve inspired you with our ideas of ideal types of properties for tranquil getaways. If you really want to escape look out for secluded detached properties with their own gardens, for maximum privacy and peace.
