Family Friendly Holiday Cottages
As the nation opts for staycations, accommodation is getting booked up for the school summer holidays and fast.

But what exactly makes the best family friendly holiday cottages and what is the market demanding?
After a very difficult year, everyone wants to have fun, laugh and be with the ones that they love the most. Therefore the optimal family holiday cottage should provide amenities that allows their guests to do exactly that. We recommend that holiday home owners. managers provide outdoor activities, games (of course, this must be in accordance with COVID regulations) and information to local experiences. Do you know any small local businesses that can offer services to your guests? Such as a private yoga session, a cooking lesson or maybe a cycling tour? Owners and managers should consider teaming up with local businesses, so that guests can make the most of their stay.

Budget Friendly Cottages Cheltenham
Holiday Cottages in Cheltenham can sometimes be on the pricey side, but there is no need for those of you who are trying to save a bit of money to miss out on your well deserved break! There are plenty of places for you to visit in and around Cheltenham which may be more suitable.
Consider staying in the following areas of Cheltenham to find a more finance friendly holiday:
Prestbury – an old village with two lovely pubs and the home to Cheltenham Racecourse. The Queen was known to visit the local butchers (which is now a convenient store in the village) when visiting the races. It is also rumoured that she attended the Royal Oak pub and The Plough from time to time (this is just a rumour, but we like to believe it is true).
Charlton Kings – Just a short drive away from Cheltenham Town Centre, Charlton Kings has a lovely wine bar called Sixways Wine Bar. The locals know the main area of Charlton Kings as ‘Six Ways’ due to the busy six ways junction. But do not fret, there are plenty of stunning back roads and quieter areas for you to rest after enjoying a bottle (or more) at the wine bar.
Pittville – Pittville Park is a large stunning park just outside of Cheltenham Town that offers a lot for the family, friends and for couples who are looking to get away. The houses and flats that surround Pittville Park are grand, elegant and most of them are Georgian. This may suggest expense, but if you are open to taking full advantage of the occupancy and are happy to visit this lovely town in the colder months, you could bag yourself a real bargain. Remember, overlooking a park in Autumn is not something to be sniffed at!
