While the Rule of Six remains in place, holiday cottages are allowed to accommodate a maximum of six guests. This Rule doesn’t do any favours to all those fabulous UK holiday cottages that sleep seven or more. However, many owners have responded positively to this limitation on numbers. This page features a list of properties offering a discount for up to six guests bringing some superb houses within reach of your budget. Just try comparing these prices with the equivalent cost of a hotel, and you’ll appreciate there are some fantastic bargains to be had this autumn and next spring.
As well as the healthy appeal of spaciousness, large holiday cottages tend to come with many more leisure facilities as their size makes the cost of such facilities viable. We’re talking about swimming pools, smart TVs, cinema rooms, hot tubs and the like. Equally, they provide opportunities for teenage guests who fancy the idea of having their own room with a double bed rather than having to share with siblings. All the cottages on this page offer discounts on bookings that take place before the 25th March 2021. Book now and spend a long weekend or week in style.
