Weekend cottage getaways
Work hard all week, play hard all weekend? That would be the ideal that most of us fail to achieve very often but it is something to aspire to. You might think that it would be lovely to own a holiday cottage or apartment that you can escape to on a Friday evening and stay until Sunday afternoon. And indeed it is for those who have the means to employ a cleaner that deals with the bed-linen and general cleaning and maintenance at the end of each visit at the holiday home and permanent home.
Ordinary mortals can live this life only by rental a holiday cottage occasionally for the weekend. Still, sometimes is better than not at all and renting removes all the problems associated with owning a property. Do we care whether the holiday home insurance has been paid or whether the lawn has been trimmed this week? We only care about a beautifully clean and welcoming cottage on our arrival and having a wonderful weekend break.
We can share in the pleasure of other people’s rural retreats and they can appreciate a reduction in running costs by letting to other people. One good reason not to own a holiday home is the choice and variety of lettings that is available to us. Some of us thrive on novelty and the chance of going somewhere completely new to us. Weekend breaks stay fresh and interesting and we cannot get enough of them.
The range of holiday cottages is incredible. Couples have no trouble in finding holiday cottages for 2 and in arranging a weekend break easily. Organising a family or group getaway inevitable becomes a little more complicated because of obtaining a consensus from more people. There is always the one person who insists on having things their way and wants to stay in the Cotswolds when everyone else wants to rent a cottage in the Lake District. There are times when the only way to decide where to rent a cottage is to vote or draw lots. We have endless beautiful weekend break destination in the UK and Ireland. Why not make a list and visit them all in turn?
