Comment Off 24 Views

Are you thinking about a sweet, romantic holiday for your next anniversary or a quiet holiday with the children? Then you might want to consider renting a cottage in or near the Peak District! There are numerous benefits to renting cottages, such as laundry amenities and cooking amenities. In addition, a cottage near the Peak District allows you to enjoy numerous different activities such as hiking and biking.

Just take a look at all the different amenities and advantages there are to renting a cottage for your next holiday destination.


This is an imperative benefit over many other types of holiday stay options. Peak District cottages have washing facilities so that you can pack less in your luggage and save room for some amazing souvenirs! You can also do laundry in the middle of the week or do all your laundry when you’re on holiday; that way you come home with suitcases that are full of clean clothes. Just don’t forget to bring or purchase the laundry detergent when you get to your cottage.

Home-Cooked Meals

With a microwave, stovetop and oven available for your use in your cottage, you get to cook homemade meals for your spouse and kids. Having a refrigerator and an oven really helps you with eating-out costs, especially for breakfast and lunch. Eating out on holiday can really cost you a lot of money, and sometimes it’s nice to be able to stay in the cottage with your significant other if you’re feeling amorous.



Cottages come equipped with dishwashers as well. While cooking a meal is a labour of love, no one wants to do the dishes afterward. Enjoy the time you have with your significant other, family and friends and let the dishwasher do the job of cleaning up after your home-cooked meal.

Extra Space

This is one of the best advantages of a cottage. It’s so nice to have extra space to relax and unwind in after a long hike or bike ride. Rather than being cooped up in one or two rooms with the kids, you can enjoy a cottage with a living area, kitchen, separate bathroom and washroom, and a dining room—not to mention the beautiful outdoor yard that comes along with it. There’s so much space where you can enjoy your time, you might not want to leave the cottage!

Cost Effective

You might be surprised by just how much cheaper it is to rent a cottage rather than renting a hotel or motel room. You can bring along another family or some friends to make the stay cheaper, and no one will feel they’re stuffed into a tiny room.



Rental cottages are located near villages where there is a sense of community, as well as the usual amenities that are available at a normal price. You will no longer have to deal with inflated prices at tourist trap destinations. Rather, you’ll be able to visit local shops with products that are unique and authentic to the area.


Every rental cottage is different. They offer many different amenities and you get to pick and choose which ones will work best for your needs. Whether you want a small cottage for just the two of you or a large one for friends and family, there is a cottage available that will fit your needs.

Have fun choosing the cottage that best fits your romantic needs, such as a cottage with just one bedroom and a cosy fireplace, or a cottage that’s close to romantic destinations.

Choose a cottage that fits your décor style, such as a cottage with flowing curtains or one with yellow drapes. There are endless options when it comes to finding a cottage that will speak to your inner holiday-goer.

Pets Are Allowed

Most cottages allow pets. Your furry or feathered friend doesn’t have to stay at home while you’re away on holiday. Bring them along and let them enjoy the fresh air of the Peak District with you.

Cosy Atmosphere

Many cottages will come equipped with fireplaces or fire pits outside where you can settle down and enjoy a glass of wine or just chat with the company you’re keeping. In addition, cottages are very private rentals. You don’t have to worry about the people in the next room keeping you up all night (unless they’re your children!).

Nearby Attractions

You can opt for a cottage with numerous attractions nearby, or you can choose a cottage with very little nearby attractions in order to obtain that solitary feel. Cottages with nearby attractions are located near pubs or bars, local eateries and hiking trails. Cottages without nearby attractions have adequate parking so they’re easy to get to.


All the Positives without the Negatives of a Traditional Hotel

Are you afraid you’re going to have to wash your own linens or towels if you rent a cottage? Maybe you’re afraid you won’t be able to get cell service or Wi-Fi for your laptop. Don’t fret. Cottages come equipped with Wi-Fi, linen service, a DVD player, televisions and much more. They have larger accommodations with all the amenities you need, and come equipped with an owner that truly cares about their guests.

No Hidden Fees

One of the worst things about going to a hotel for a holiday is the hidden fees. You might rent a movie without realising it costs five times the amount it would have cost if you rented it at home, and every day the valet takes your car to the parking garage—all of this racks up a huge bill for you to pay at the end of your stay. It’s very easy for the price of a holiday to get out of control when there are hidden fees implemented by hotels. Cottage rentals offer a one-time fee for rental and a breakdown of what every extra costs so that you’re never blindsided by the bill.


So if you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will make you feel like you’re at a home away from home, then rent a cottage!
