Summer Breaks and Holidays

Wow, the sun is out, it’s even starting to feel like a pleasant summers day  down here in Sussex! Dare we even go as far to say that may be now, while we are feeling super positive, would be a good time to book our Summer Holiday?

If like us, you have been waiting for the signs that we are going to have a summer in 2012 before booking your holiday, then time is beginning to run out.  So we are taking today’s bright start as a good sign and getting down to the job of deciding exactly where we are going to go this year.

With so many great places to explore across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland it’s difficult to know where to start.  So we have put together a list of family friendly self catering cottages, apartments, holiday flats and lodges that are all perfect for the school summer holidays. We have even sorted it randomly so you get some great ideas of places that you may be had not even have thought of going to this year. Take a look at our Summer Holidays suggestions

Our search is, unusually for us, around the Kent area this year.  We are normally South West of England addicts, having already stayed in East Devon earlier this year and regular visitors to Cornwall, but with the Olympics in mind we are keen to stay closer to the action.  Kent is handily placed for day trips to London, but the ‘Garden of England’ has a lot more to offer than that, including wonderful rural villages, Blue Flag beaches, rolling patchwork countryside and Kent attractions such as Leeds Castle, Kent County Show and Gardens to Visit.  We have checked out our Kent cottage reviews and have seen some great places but if you have any recommendations then let us know.

If you are booking your holiday today, happy searching.

 

Royal Ascot next week, book a cottage short break to enjoy the fun

One of the premier sporting and social ocassions in the British calendar, Royal Ascot gets underway next week – Tuesday 19th June.

A uniquely British sporting event where Royalty attends, there is a daily Royal Procession, and the guests turn out in the highest of fashion and style… the day even finishes with singing of traditional songs around the bandstand.

The horse racing is of the highest order, with 18 of the world’s most prestigious races taking place over the 5 days and with some £4.5 million pounds of winnings at stake.

Although Royal Ascot is well known for its fashion and, of course the designer hats on Ladies Day (Thursday), don’t let that put you off.  It’s a great day out even if you just want to observe it rather than be dressed for it!

Whether you are going for one day or a number of days, Royal Ascot is the perfect excuse for a short break.  Set in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Ascot is easily reached from Berkshire and Surrey.  Being only 50 minutes by car or train from central London also makes it within easy reach of London apartments as well as Hampshire, West Sussex and Kent.

You can find out more about Royal Ascot, see a selection of self catering cottages and useful links to B&B, guest house and hotels on our Royal Ascot Cottage Break page.
