Exchange Air Rage and DVT for Country Pubs and Cream Teas
With Cottages.co.uk’s online guide to UK holiday lets
December 04, 2006, Press Dispensary. Rushing to the airport for a charmless 'bucket' flight complete with overpriced airport facilities, queues at passport control and potential delays (not forgetting the minor risk of in-flight deep vein thrombosis!) can spoil a holiday before the plane's even left the ground. Instead, holidaymakers can avoid airport taxes, peruse their PC, and find the ideal, stress-free UK break with Cottages.co.uk (http://www.cottages.co.uk).
Cottages.co.uk’s free and simple to use service means people can book a UK cottage holiday with confidence, through an agency which has good knowledge of the local area and is discerning in its choice of accommodation.
Jon Cockerill, director of Cottages.co.uk, advises: “Booking with a reputable local agency offers advantages over booking directly with property owners because the agency can provide accurate assessment of the cottage’s condition and facilities.”
With a choice of 10,000 properties up for grabs, there’s endless choice, whether a family is looking for a pets-are-welcome farmhouse with coarse fishing and a good pub on hand, or a couple fancies a romantic retreat with sea view, local gourmet restaurant and hot tub facilities.
The website is designed to help holidaymakers who are seeking the perfect rental, rather than agencies looking for new customers. Jon explains: "Many of the featured agencies have been trading for over 30 years and offer a portfolio of the most attractive cottages in their area to a loyal customer base. Cottages.co.uk allows the first-time visitor to gain inside knowledge and discover the local gems."
The website details over 120 independent holiday letting agencies in resorts from artists’ and surfers’ favourite, St Ives, Cornwall, to the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
For customers desiring indulgence, Cottages.co.uk’s ‘cottage of the day’ (http://www.cottages.co.uk/cod.php) showcases properties such as The Bathing House, a grade II listed cottage, located on the idyllic Northumberland coast.
Cottages.co.uk also offers plenty of advice to help holidaymakers ask the right questions and avoid making the wrong assumptions when booking their rental.
