In just a few weeks time, the school holidays will be upon us and summer will be here. Here at Sykes Cottages, we’re hoping for days of endless sunshine for family trips to the beach, sunbathing in the garden and al fresco dining. A cottage holiday is a great way to explore everything the UK has to offer this summer and our self-catering cottages make a great base for new discoveries.
If you’re looking for inspiration, here are a few suggestions for your summer holiday…
Isle of Wight
A holiday to the Isle of Wight definitely feels like you’ve the UK mainland far behind. With a wonderfully mild climate and an exciting hovercraft or ferry trip to start your holiday, it’s a great choice for a cottage holiday this summer. The Isle is a great place for water babies with excellent watersports, family-friendly beaches and Cowes regatta. Music lovers also flock to the island with a surprising number of live festivals given the island’s size. We have a great range of cottages across the island including quite a number of large cottages which are a fantastic choice if you’re travelling with the whole family or big group of friends.
For those seeking an active break, the East Anglia region of Norfolk is a pretty good bet. Miles of countryside giving way to coastal paths are perfect for bracing walks and bike rides and allow you to take in beautiful vistas. You could even hire a boat and enjoy cruising the spectacular Norfolk Broads with more than 200 square kilometres of navigable waterways. Choose one of our cottages located in a traditional seaside resort like pretty Wells-next-the-Sea or try the famous crab in Cromer.
With more than 200 beaches, a staggeringly beautiful coastline and too many family attractions to list, it’s little wonder that Cornwall is a popular holiday destination year after year. Our Cornish cottages make a great destination for a summer holiday whether you choose a traditional stone-built fisherman’s cottage or contemporary apartment with views of the sea. Discover tiny fishing villages packed with history like Mousehole and Polperro, tourist hotspots like Newquay and Land’s End or head inland and enjoy the beautifully wild Bodmin Moor.
