5 tips you might find useful before you book holiday cottages in East Devon

We are confident you’ll have a wonderful holiday when you book our 5 star holiday cottage but understand that you might book other types of cottages at some point in the future. Therefore, we decided to cobble together a brief guide to booking holiday cottages in East Devon, use this list as the planner when you rent a property in the future.

  • Take a look at the layout: How big is the cottage you are thinking of renting and what is the layout like? Is there enough bedrooms and bathrooms to cater for all of the guests, will some people have to spend their nights on sofa beds and will they be happy with that arrangement? Our cottage has 4 double/twin bedrooms, three of which are en suite. Plus there’s a single bedroom so we can cater for large parties with ease.
  • Consider the budget: Look at the overall cost of the holiday cottage in Devon and how much it’s going to cost you in fuel as well. The good thing about luxury self-catering is you can save money on dining out by preparing breakfasts, packed lunches and some evening meals in the holiday home.
  • Location: The exact setting for a holiday cottage is something to look into as well. We’re lucky. Our holiday home is perfectly situated in Branscombe so we’re right in the heart of Devon and you’ll find so much to see and do within a short distance from the cottage.
  • Dates and times: If you like the look of a holiday cottage it’s best to book early because the most popular holiday homes get snapped up quickly. Work out the dates you want to go, how long you want to stay and check to see the holiday rental has a hand over day that suits your plans.
  • Travelling: If you are staying in a holiday cottage during the peak season make sure you allow for plenty of travelling time. Roads tend to get busy during the school holidays so plan your route in advance when you book a holiday cottage in Devon, leave earlier than you need to and enjoy the drive down to Branscombe!
