Self catering one storey cottages for 6

family holidays uk

Holidays are all about destination – the places you visit form lasting memories, and it’s not just where you go, but how you explore each destination. The things you do and see make it a holiday to remember. If you’re wishing you were somewhere else and fancy a break in one of the many beautiful areas of England, remember that the key factor in making any holiday enjoyable is the relaxed pace.

bungalow for 6 for family self catering holidaysSo, why not consider a self-catering bungalow – everything on one level; no stairs, which can often be dangerous for small children and difficult for older family members. Bungalows come in different guises, from the traditional property built near to coastal towns to rural barn conversions or attractive lodges just inland from the coast or in a lakeside setting. Across the counties of England you will find great variety with properties offering accommodation for up to six people.

There are so many things which can make a self-catering holiday special. One of the bonuses is freedom of choice. Most of the properties have superb fitted kitchens with all the equipment required to cook as much or as little as you please. Children dislike hotel restrictions and often their menus, and love the freedom of a garden to run off their energy. There are properties with outdoor hot-tubs and some have shared access to a swimming pool. Your time is your own, so explore the surrounding countryside, enjoy the local fare, and relax back at your holiday accommodation, mulling over the day’s activities whilst enjoying that well-deserved glass of wine!

Wonderful holidays for six in the Lleyn Peninsual, north Wales

Criccieth sea front, north WalesThe Lleyn Peninsula, Gwynedd, North Wales, is a perfect base for a holiday which combines sun, sea and sand with the awe-inspiring mountainous scenery of Snowdonia. The area is steeped in history and Celtic culture. Beautiful beaches at Llanbedrog, where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted, Abersoch – loved by dinghy sailors, and Nefyn on the north west coast. Venture along the coast via Pwllheli to Criccieth and visit the Lloyd George Museum and 13C castle which overlooks Tremadog Bay. A few miles along the coast is the pretty seaside of Porthmadog – take a ride on the famous Ffestiniog railway from here. A must-see is the unique Italianate village of Portmeirion with its unusual architecture, 70-acre sub-tropical woodland gardens and two lakes.

There are several fortresses in the area which are straight out of the pages of history books. Nearest is Harlech castle, looking both out to sea and across the land to Snowdonia from its rocky perch. Further afield is the massive Caernarfon Castle with its polygonal towers, of which the Eagle Tower is the most impressive. Caernarfon was the site of the investiture of the Princes of Wales.

Snowdonia self-catering holidays

Snowdonia for family breaksSnowdonia is a walker’s paradise – numerous trails with a fabulous backdrop of mountains, forests, incredible waterfalls and deep river valleys. If serious walking is not your scene, why not ride to the summit of Snowdon on the mountain railway and enjoy the breathtaking scenery in comfort. The National Park offers a large range of outdoor activities to suit all abilities. There are trails for cycling enthusiasts in southern Snowdonia and cyles can be hired from Dolgellau. The Mawddach Valley trail is 22 miles long and follows an old diused railway line along the edge of the picturesque Mawdach Estuary.
