If you didn’t manage to get away for Half Term you might be planning a break for Easter and thinking about possible destinations for your self-catering getaway in beautiful Britain. There are some great reasons to choose the UK as the destination for your Easter getaway and a great range of cottages available for Easter to choose from.
Great Reasons to Holiday in the UK this Easter
• No uncertainties about currency exchange rates – With fluctuations in currency exchange rates and uncertainty about what the pound will buy you if you choose to go abroad it’s no surprise that 2017 may truly be the year of the Staycation. Rent a holiday home in the UK and benefit from the certainty that you know what you’ll be paying for your cottage and won’t be likely to get caught out by any nasty exchange rate changes.
• Love that Home from Home Feel – Britain has lots to offer in terms of home comforts, particularly for those of us born and bred in the UK, there really is no place like home in some ways. Choose to rent a holiday home in the UK and you can enjoy that reassuring feel of renting a home from home, where you can go in to the local pub without language or cultural barriers and feel the reassurance and ease that comes with that.
• Appreciate Home Comforts on a Holiday in the UK Plus for all those picky eaters out there, you get to eat your favourite foods whilst away too, just do your shop before your break (or liaise with the holiday home owner and arrange a food delivery for when you’ll be away) or head to the local supermarket on arrival. With a stay in the UK there is no need to fill your suitcase with all those essentials like “proper tea”, Heinz ketchup or any of your other favourite comfort foods.
Take your Dog on Holiday Too!
Holiday within the UK and one great advantage is no passport controls and the chance to take your pet dog away too. Country Cottages Online feature a great choice of pet-friendly holiday cottages where you and your canine companion will be made to feel very welcome. So taking a staycation break this Easter you won’t need to worry about or pine for your much loved four-legged family member whilst you’re away as they can enjoy a holiday too!
Choose the UK Destination that Suits you Best this Easter
Whether you choose to holiday in Scotland, England, Wales or Ireland, each part of the UK has its own unique character and appeal. Regions within these countries can also be very different and offer completely different scenery and experiences depending on where you choose to visit. Common to all is a rich history and the choice to spend time in the countryside or coast. For remote holidays where you can head off in to wild untouched landscapes and enjoy wildlife watching at its best, Scotland and Ireland tend to be the best choices, whereas England and Wales offer their own unique appeal, along with the added convenience of proximity, particularly for Londoners and those based around the South East of England.

Choose the Facilities in a Cottage that Suit you Best
For some people, breaks are all about exploring the great outdoors and spending time discovering a new area and the emphasis is on finding good value budget self-catering accommodation. Whereas for others, it is most important to kick back, relax and unwind in luxurious accommodation. Options like cottages with hot tubs or cottages with swimming pools are popular choices for travellers looking to truly relax on holiday. If you are looking to book a cottage for Easter with leisure facilities, booking early is recommended as these properties are popular and tend to book up quickly.
