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.
