Things to do during a UK cottage/self catering holiday

There is always a wealth of things to do around your holiday cottages or self catering accommodation. Holiday cottages and self catering accommodation provide a great base from which you can explore the area. Your comfortable cottage will be waiting for you after a fun filled day out seeing the local scenery, and sampling the local culture etc.

The choice available to you will depend on the area and time of year - and your personal preferences, but here are some ideas on what to do during your cottage/self catering holiday.

For gentle or brisk exercise walking, hill hiking, cycling or mountain climbing are great ways of getting some clean country air in your lungs.

The United Kingdom is packed with culture and an extraordinary wealth of heritage and natural beauty spots, National parks, cathedrals, castles and stately homes as well as gardens and costal areas, lowlands and highlands.

If you have a holiday cottage near a historic city then you can enjoy days out to museums and galleries.

On hot sunny days then maybe swimming in the sea or in public swimming pools will be the way to cool down.

For the less energetic, there is usually the local friendly pub where you can meet the locals in a relaxed atmosphere.

If you are by the sea or river, you might find a nearby sailing club or marina where you can hire a boat. You might also check out local fishing spots and other sporting facilities such as golf courses etc.
