Get a fantastic 10% discount on selected cottage holidays for seven days or longer in 2013

A massive 41% of Brits holidayed at home last year, and more of us than ever are staying in these shores in 2013 – taking a ‘staycation’ to tackle rising travel costs.

But it’s also the case that we’re realising that there are some outstanding holiday spots on our own doorstep. You don’t need to go abroad if you want to see some spectacular scenery and experience an amazing family adventure!

The beautiful West Country and Cornish countryside currently tops the list of the most popular UK staycation hotspots – not surprising with its magnificently unspoilt landscape and coastline.

Plus right now they are offering a fantastic 10% discount on selected cottage holidays for seven days or longer in 2013 if you book before 15 March!

It’s easy to cut costs with a self-catered, well- equipped cottage holiday. Whether you’re going on your first holiday with the new edition to the family, or holidaying with Great Aunty Joan and Rex the dog, you’ll have the freedom to have the break that you want.

Take a look at some of these great family-friendly choices to tickle your fancy:

Cornwall – Tremaen cottage

Tremean-CottageIf you’re looking for a picturesque sunny and family-friendly break, you could organise a great getaway to Tremaen cottage. Set on the outskirts of the Cornish village St Keverne just south west of Porthallow, you won’t want to hand the keys back to this pretty little place with its own sunny little courtyard garden.

We’re talking exposed wooden beams and a well equipped kitchen – perfect for a couple with a couple of little ones. This home-from-home has two bedrooms and a cot with lovely views across the rooftops towards the village church. Explore the surrounding area with your family, with local shops just a short walk away.

Devon – The Lookout

The Look outTake in the sea views of stunning Brixham and Torbay in this peaceful pet-friendly house. There is an open plan living room, a balcony, two bedrooms and even a four poster bed.

Explore the local scenery with Berry Head National Nature Reserve and coast path nearby, Shoalstone open-air pool and lots of tasty fish restaurants – where the catch of the day couldn’t be fresher.

Dorset – The Old School Gables

The-Old-School-GablesWant to stay somewhere a bit different for your holidays this year and save money too? This traditional stone-clad old school in the beautiful village of Drimpton in Dorset has been converted into a lovely living space close to the historic town of Bridport and quaint Lyme Regis.

Kids can run around the old playground, and enjoy the two bright and airy bedrooms, contemporary kitchen/diner and spacious sitting room overlooking the countryside.

Somerset – Brottens Cottage

Brottens-CottageIf you fancy a trip to Somerset for this year’s family break then Brottens cottage could be the perfect retreat. Set on a hilltop, you can literally see for miles!

This converted coach house sleeps six with a cot – and has an open-air swimming pool during the summer, a games room and your own private garden. Take an adventure up to the ancient Glastonbury Tor, or pop along with the kids to Longleat Safari Park to see their favourite animals.

Prices are banded A-Z to suit all budgets, and start from around £265 before discount. New offers come up at Classic Cottages all the time, including big discounts on cancellations or late availability. Check the website and sign up to their newsletter for the latest alerts.
