Spend your best ever summer holiday by thinking about some new ideas to make your annual break one to remember. Renting a cottage for summer is something different whether you decide on a one-week, two-week, or two-month break from home. Some families have hot on the idea of clubbing together and block booking a holiday cottage for the summer.
Often a group of families take one or two weeks of the block booking and enjoy weekend overlaps as they enjoy a few days with friends and then stay on for the rest of the time with family. During school holidays, some friends with children share our cottage for a week or two with husbands and others joining them for the weekends. Nothing gives you more flexibility than a home away from home where you can enjoy your privacy and be able to do the things you want to do at your leisure.
Moreover, renting a cottage for summer holidays is a very affordable way of having a summer break with family or friends but also is ideal as the perfect getaway for a romantic break as well. Holidaying with friends takes the pressure off if there are children as the kids will keep themselves amused (especially in our cottage garden), with many hands, barbeques, and full English breakfasts are easy to prepare, cook, and clear away. Girls can go off for a day at one of the fabulous spas around
Cheltenham and the boys can go off for a spot of fishing or golf giving everyone a chance for some down time. The kids will be spoilt for attractions and with the full family friendly welcome that Gloucestershire is famed for; every member of the family will have a ball.
Renting a cottage for summer is also ideal for groups of friends or hobby enthusiasts who want to attend some of the many events that occur throughout the Gloucestershire summer. Groups who want to indulge in fishing, horse riding, walking and other outdoor pursuits will find Cooks Green Cottage the ideal location with comfortable bedrooms and an open fire for chilly evenings when the sun goes down. Concertgoers can take in some of the musical events such as the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and there are all kinds of county agricultural shows and outdoor events. When conventions come to town or a couple of days at Cheltenham racecourse are wanted, our cottage is the perfect location for many of these events.
Do not forget that Cooks Green Cottage welcomes well-behaved pets so if the family four legged friends are also in need of a relaxing summer break then renting a holiday cottage for summer meets the needs of every member of the family and certainly saves on those kennel bills. If you have a hamster or other caged pet, they are welcome but do take good advice on travelling them as some small pets do not travel well.
With room to store your sporting equipment and every facility to relax and wind down after an active day out, we can guarantee you will be delighted with our accommodation.
Our location is one of the most glorious places to visit in the UK with stone walls, lush greenery, honey-coloured houses built from the local sandstone, cottage gardens, and leafy lanes. Our local villages are quintessentially English with duck ponds, little parish churches and village greens where you can hear the “thwack” of leather on willow as cricket balls hit bats (our local ground is just a 5 minute walk away!). The natural beauty is astounding and the historical sites and monuments from one of the UK’s richest areas of history will keep visitors busy during their stay whatever their interests. We do have some absolutely beautiful weather throughout the Spring and Summer months (but we cannot guarantee it!!) and there is no more blissful place to spend time.
For anyone renting a cottage for summer in this part of the world, the food is a huge attraction. There are restaurants and pubs serving simple local produce to fine dining in Michelin starred restaurants. With local fruit and meat from heritage breeds of pigs, sheep and cattle, you will have as much fun shopping for locally produced produce as eating it.
Travelling to the Cotswolds is easy from any direction and is the ideal spot for a holiday to remember in a holiday cottage with a difference. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
