Lodge Holidays 2024

Lodge holidays do vary as they are generally unique depending on the location you choose. That said some lodges are located within holiday parks and in those cases tend to be similar at that location. Like holiday cottages and holiday parks the usual popular requirements apply. Does the lodge accept pets, is there a hot tub, is it near the beach, is there access to a heated indoor pool?  There are lodges in  forest settings overlooking Scottish lochs or lakes in England or Wales, which is probably what many people imagine a lodge holiday would be. So double check the accommodation to make sure you are getting the lodge holiday you are expecting.

Boat Holidays 2024

Like the holiday cottage holidays boating holidays generally offer a unique holiday experience as the boats are all different and unique.  The first thing to consider when thinking about a boat holiday is where you wish to explore. You can choose from the Broads or canals and rivers.  Not surprisingly we see the familiar options such as pet friendly boating holidays, WiFi availability and ideal for families. However boating holidays do have a few unique aspects such as lock free cruising and boats ideal for first time boaters. Something else to consider with a boat holiday is the fuel and there are some fuel inclusive deals that take care of this. Not all boats are suitable to take bikes on board so you may want to look out for that when checking boat holiday availability and prices. The type of boat available to rent can vary from a canal boat to cruiser or even houseboats.
