The biggest advantage of staying in a cottage or a holiday home is the fact that you’ll be hiring a great deal of space if you’re travelling with a large party.

Pick somewhere with beautiful views and a lovely garden so you can use a barbeque and the kids can go wild.
B&B or Hotel
Well, the obvious advantage is that you don’t have to clean up or make your bed! The all inclusive element is certainly tempting!
