Everyone feels good staying in an attractive holiday cottage in the UK or Ireland.
You awake as the sun rises in the east over emerald green rolling hills that stretch as far as the eye can see. Snuggling down into your lovely cosy bed, with its crisp freshly laundered and ever so stylish bed linen, you smile as you think back on the events of the previous evening; a romantic candlelit dinner on the herb and flower draped patio, of your holiday cottage. As you watched, the oranges and yellows of the sunset turned first to pink then red and finally, night fell about you.
Later as a spectacular and spontaneous star display played out above, you enjoyed a bubbly soak in the luxurious hot tub with your loved one. Slowly you sipped chilled champagne while the intoxicating evening scent of jasmine helped to create a magically, laid-back atmosphere; a very long way from home and next door's nasty, little, spotty twins and their ever present camera phone.
Yes, this holiday dream can be yours but first you will need to find and rent a holiday cottage with its own hot tub in the UK or Ireland. There are plenty of beautifully maintained cottages to choose from; cottage for 2 and cottages with just about every facility you can imagine ensuring that you have the time of your life.
Continue to imagine your perfect self-catering holiday experience; today, your mood is light, bright and cheerful. You're looking forward to a day of utterly glorious leisure. After a late breakfast in the well- equipped, sun filled kitchen, you will take a visit to the deceptively close market town. You plan an unhurried wander through the farmers' market searching for freshly baked bread, creamy cheeses, crunchy salads, pate and other appetising locally produced delicacies; enough for a long drawn out lunch later, in the fragrant, secluded garden of your very pretty country cottage.
There are cottages and pine lodges to rent for holidays in charming villages dotted all over England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales that promise a comfortable break. Our minds switch from the humdrum to our new surroundings and the possibilities around us; a walk in the woods followed by coffee and cake in the local tea shop, a drive to the top of a hill just to see the view or a discovery of the village and its amenities.
Every location has something for holidaymakers to do; there may be canoeing, pot-holing (if in Yorkshire), hang gliding (high hills such as the Peak District or Cumbria), a cycling visit to see the wild ponies (West Country or New Forest), water sports on rivers and the coast or messing about in a rowing boat on a lake. We are well-endowed with outdoor activities in the UK and Ireland and a host of stunning national parks with endless acres of countryside. After a thrilling day out, there is the pleasure of returning to your private holiday accommodation to chill out with a glass of wine.
After dinner, in the airy and bright dining room, you will retire to the lounge to enjoy its seductive ambience; its sumptuous décor; pale pastel walls, adorned with landscapes depicting local scenes by talented local artists, contrasting perfectly with soft leather sofas and antique oak furniture. Together it creates a feeling of pure decadence, no doubt the result of immense attention to detail that is found in high quality holiday accommodation.
An enjoyable stay in a holiday cottage may encourage you to share the experience with family and friends over the Christmas period. Rent a big cottage or country manor for a Christmas break with your nearest and dearest. Share the costs to defray expenses and get-together in the country, somewhere that pleases everyone and have a fabulous Christmas break with dinner around the same table. Large self-catering properties that sleep up to 20 or 30 people are available and are brilliant for Christmas, New Year and family celebrations. You could celebrate in a personal way that is impossible in other establishments.
Disabled people in your group can also be catered for because there are plenty of holiday cottages in Britain and Ireland that are specifically designed with wheelchair access and facilities for mobility impaired people. Sometime it is the presence of a ground floor bedroom with wet room that is sufficient. Indeed the UK and Ireland are recommended destinations for holidays for the disabled because of the facilities in place.
Whatever your choice of holiday cottage, a 'feel good' atmosphere will be present. Be it a romantic thatched cottage with old fashioned charm or a smart Victorian property in town within easy access of theatres and places to browse. It will be there along with a smart façade, mod cons and that all important attention to detail.
As you leave at the end of your holiday, feeling relaxed, refreshed and happy, remember that 'feel good' atmosphere is yours to take home with you so don't leave without it. Enjoy.
