Holidays in the UK: The cottage is the destination

Back in the day, holiday cottages were somewhere to lay your hat - out the front door in the morning and back when the sun sets ...
NEW FOREST, U.K. - June 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Holidays in the UK have changed.

New Forest Living holiday cottages attract a new generation of self caterers, Jude Dalton of New Forest Living explains. “The holiday cottage has become the destination in itself - the hub of the holiday when downtime is all important, whether visiting with friends or family. Unique cottages and country houses that offer a high level of luxury and comfort are our strong point, ticking all the boxes for a relaxing countryside retreat in the UK” - and the New Forest is wonderful at any time of year.

New Forest Living offer many family and child friendly cottages in the New Forest that are just as comfy for two couples looking for a weekend break; some are also happy for you to bring your dog. Hunters Moon at Godshill (pictured) is a good example, and who wouldn’t want to snuggle down with your spaniel in front of the fire on a winter afternoon in this holiday cottage? A Traditional Green Oak frame thatched cottage straight out of a picture book - you won’t want to leave.

As Jude comments, “the spring of 2013 has been more like December, but all our guests have been really happy - relaxing in their holiday cottage with the morning papers and an espresso, mooching around the antique shops and indulging in cream tea in the afternoon … either cooking up a storm in our well equipped kitchens or trotting off to the local pub for supper.”

The same can be said for Riverside Retreat at Beaulieu, also in the New Forest Living portfolio of holiday cottages. With huge high balconies over looking the Beaulieu River - the wind may rustle through the tree line but you will be all snug and cosy in front of the wood burner. A quick bike ride down to Bucklers Hard when the sun peeps out, or to pop for Sunday lunch, then back for an afternoon snooze.

So despite the inclement weather as we continue into the British summer, the UK holiday experience is very worthwhile.

At just under two hours drive from London, the New Forest offers the ideal getaway for the weekend, and a fantastic holiday cottage is not hard to find with the help of New Forest Living.

Both Hunters Moon and Riverside Retreat have availability for holidays and weekend breaks in September and October 2013, and the New Forest is especially beautiful in the autumn - even if only seen through the cottage window.
