Are you suffering from Post Olympic Blues? A cottage break could be the cure

We have to say that today we feel a little down, bereft of our beloved Olympic sports that provided all the drama and excitement we needed on a daily basis. Today we had no Olympic medal table to check, no sport schedules to check before selecting the best time of day for a quick dash to the shops and no 24 plus channels to watch every sport we could think of an many we couldn’t.

In fact we have been so absorbed by the sporting extravaganza that we haven’t even been updating our blog. But now it’s all over and we are left with a feeling of life will never be quite the same again 😦

However, above all else these superb Olympics did show what a wonderful country we live in, with superb landmarks, diverse culture, and with people a warm and friendly spirit (not forgetting the glorious weather!).

And so with so much going for it, we highly recommend taking a break in Great Britain and there is no finer way than in a self catering cottage or apartment. Whether you have been inspired by the Olympic water sports off Weymouth and the south coast, the equestrian events in the London Royal Parks, the cycling across the home counties or the rowing at Eton, you will find some great self catering holiday cottages close by to explore these wonderful areas of Britain.

Although we are now well in to the summer holidays you can still find some great deals for short breaks or holidays to take advantage of the good weather at locations across Britain and Ireland – perfect for couples, families or groups of friends.


Olympic Sailing Cottage Breaks – Weymouth, Portland, Dorset

It’s only 6 weeks to go until the Olympic Sailing regatta starts in Weymouth and Portland in Dorset.  The first events begin on the 29th July and with the British boats expected to perform well in all classes the excitement is starting to build.  What’s more the Olympic sailing is followed shortly after by the Paralympic sailing event in the first week of September.

So this is the perfect time to plan a weekend break, short break or holiday in Dorset to soak up the Olympic excitement and to be able to see first hand a wonderful sporting occasion. You may not have tickets to the Olympic stands but there will be views of the racing from various coastal spots on the Dorset coast and there are sure to be lots of Olympics events running throughout the regattas.
