Staying Somewhere Quirky On Holiday

There is a lot that comes together when planning the perfect vacation. Of course, one of the most important aspects is choosing your destination with care. You need to ensure the place is suited to the type of holiday you are looking to experience.

Of course, the first decision is whether to go abroad or stay in the UK. A lot of people prefer the former, if their budget will allow it. Places like Indonesia, with Tanah Pribadi, which is private land, can provide you with the unique and luxurious holiday you are craving. Other popular spots with lots of culture and quirkiness include Thailand and Singapore.

What about the UK? Sussex is definitely a popular choice. The county is extremely beautiful and is made up of a diverse assortment of cities, towns, and villages. There is truly something for everyone, so you can’t really go wrong! From the historical Chichester to the lively Brighton, Sussex definitely caters to all tastes. The attractions on offer are extensive as well. This includes everything from castles, to gardens, to museums, to aquariums, to adventure parks, to zoos, and much, much more. You name it Sussex has it. It is also a stunning county as well. The sites on offer are truly magical. You have the breath-taking woodlands yet you also have the fantastic coast as well. Yes, Sussex definitely ticks all of the boxes.

Nonetheless, your quest to planning the perfect vacation has not ended now you have decided on your location of choice. There is one other pivotal factor that must be carefully considered and this is your choice of accommodation. There is no denying that accommodation can make or break your vacation. After all, if you are staying somewhere that is too cramped or not to your taste, it is going to put a real dampener on your vacation. How are you going to enjoy your trip if you don’t like the place you are residing in for the duration of your stay? Luckily, most places have a diverse array of accommodation options for you to choose from and so it is simply a case of making sure you choose with care. You have everything from B&BS to hotels to even quirky self-catering cottages and villas. The latter is certainly an option you should consider if you want to really make the most of your trip and ensure it is one to remember for all of the right reasons.

All you have to do is take a look on the Internet to see the array of quirky cottages, villas, and apartments that are at your disposal. They boast so much character, beauty, and charm! Imagine staying in a traditional cottage and curling up next to the fire on a winter’s evening or having a barbeque outside in the large gardens on a summer’s night. This truly is the best way to have a fantastic trip. A property like this is assured to bring an extra dimension of fun and enjoyment to your break. This is especially the case when you consider the fact that they often come complete with a whole host of different luxury extras. This includes everything from hot tubs, to large lavish gardens, to barbeque areas, to private swimming pools – not the sort of things you are going to find in a hotel or a B&B.

It is also important to consider the fact that with most hotels the maximum number of people that can stay in the same room is usually three. If you are going on holiday in a bigger group it can often spoil the occasion when you are all staying in separate places. Not to mention it is way more costly! This is something you need not worry about when staying in a holiday rental. You can find properties that sleep up to ten people and sometimes even more! This ensures that you all spend time together and enjoy your trip away as it is meant to be enjoyed. This really enhances the occasion, and is especially great if you are going away for a celebration, such as a birthday or even a hen party. This also means that holiday rentals are a lot cheaper when contrasted with other types of accommodation. This is often a surprise when you consider their quirky character and the luxury extras you are going to benefit from. However, when staying in a property you will be charged a set price for the entire week. This price does not change based on the number of people that are staying in the cottage. On the other hand, when staying in a hotel you will have to pay per night and sometimes even per person. Moreover, if you are booking more than one room as mentioned, the prices can soon begin mounting up.

Another fantastic thing about staying in a holiday property is that you will be able to take advantage of some of the most quirky and magical settings. If you take a look at the hotels online you will see that most of them tend to be situated bang in the middle of busy cities and towns. A lot of them are also on main roads and so there is no way you are going to gain from any relaxation. However, with a holiday rental it is possible to be as secluded as you like. You can really make the most of locations you otherwise would not be able to. Do you want to hire a cute little cottage by the beach? Or would you prefer to be nestled in the woodlands? The choice is of course yours. These locations really bring even more charm to your stay. Furthermore, you will be able to take advantage of some of the most spectacular views. Imagine waking up every morning and having gorgeous greens and unique wildlife starring back at you. Or, how about waking up and looking at golden sands and the beautiful blue sea? This is the real icing on the cake to any type of vacation.

If this type of accommodation appeals to you, all you need to do is take a look on the Internet. You will be able to search through the vast assortment of holiday rentals that are at your disposal. There are various different factors you should take into account when finding the right cottage for you. Firstly, you need to think about where you wish to stay. Take a look at the various attractions and different places you want to visit. It would then be wise to pick a holiday rental that is in close proximity to this area, so you don’t have to do a lot of driving whilst enjoying your trip away. Aside from this, you will obviously need to make sure the holiday rental is of the right size and features all of the facilities you require. Aside from this, it is always a good idea to read reviews that have been left by people that have stayed in the property before. This is the best way to get an honest insight into the type of vacation that is going to be enjoyed there.
