Rent a Holiday Home with a Pool
Few things compare to the enjoyment that a holiday rental with a swimming pool offers. Whether you’ve a big budget and are looking to rent a holiday house with a private pool where you and your family or friends can splash around to your heart’s content or are looking to rent a property with a shared pool, being able to swim on holiday can help you relax and unwind and can help your self-catering holiday feel that bit more special.
Choose an outdoor swimming pool for a refreshing dip in the summer or rent a holiday let with an indoor pool for fun all year round. In the summer months, relaxing by the poolside in the UK and Ireland can feel every bit as refreshing as a holiday abroad.
Bubble Away your cares in a Hot Tub Cottage
One of the most popular choices for holidaymakers is renting a holiday home with a hot tub. Particularly for active breaks where you plan to do a lot of walking and exploring on holiday, returning to a self-catering house after a day out, where there is an inviting warm bubbly hot tub waiting for you, can be a perfect choice. Hot tubs are ideal for helping you to relax and unwind on holiday; it can be one of the very best feelings to lie back in warm bubbly waters and let the jets massage you.
Remember at some cottages the facilities are shared whereas at others the facilities are private. Some properties feature outdoor hot tubs where you can lie back, relax and enjoy soaking up views whereas others have indoor hot tubs (for enjoyment whatever the weather). Choose the type of hot tub cottage that best suits you.
Soak up that Special Holiday Feel in a Log Cabin
Log Cabins have become increasingly popular over recent years. Whether it’s the smell of pine or the comfort of staying in a wooden cabin, renting a wooden lodge is ideal for enjoying that true holiday feel on a break away. Whether you’re planning a break with family, a getaway with friends or a loved up break away, nothing says holiday quite so much as a log cabin. Many cabins enjoy excellent locations too; typically cabins are found on holiday parks or small developments in scenic settings, next to lakes or nestled by a forest.
Unwind in the Countryside
When it comes to feeling relaxed and unwinding on a self-catering holiday, renting a country cottage could be the perfect choice. Escaping to the country can be good for the soul. Relaxing in a home from home atmosphere with tranquillity and nature all around can be truly soothing. Look out for properties with private gardens where you can sit out and enjoy soaking up a glorious rural atmosphere on holiday.
At some rural holiday homes you might be able to spot fascinating local wildlife like deer or even owls. Enjoying the simple pleasures in life of immersing yourself in nature can be truly good for the soul. For that true feel good factor, rent a rural retreat with country views and wake up to vistas of fields or meadows on holiday.
Fun and Games with a Games Room Cottage
Particularly popular with families and groups of friends, renting a holiday house with a games room can make for a fun-packed self-catering holiday. Properties with games rooms tend to be larger (it is common for large country houses to feature games rooms) and cottage complexes very often offer shared games room facilities.
Whether you want to rent a property with a pool table, table football or a pinball machine, having a games room can really help give your group or family something to enjoy on rainy days and can foster healthy competitive spirit on fun-filled evenings. Who doesn’t want to have fun on a break away?
