Should you decide to holiday with friends or family in a large cottage, one of the advantages you'll get is the cost of your holiday will come down. I'm not saying large holiday cottages are cheaper than small ones - that would nice, but too good to be true. What I am saying is the cost per person will reduce. So, say, there were 4 of you, and you booked a holiday cottage which sleeps 4 people, you might pay around £300. But go for something bigger, such as a cottage with the facilities which sleeps 8, and may pay £500 - or £250 for a family of 4. If you go on holiday with lots of people, you may even think about a cottage which sleeps 16 people. These properties may seem expensive, but remember to divide the price by all the people who are going on holiday - you may well be pleasantly surprised by the cost per person.

Got young children - holiday with family or friends for a ready made baby sitter

For those with young children, going on holiday can mean not getting any time to yourself. But holiday in a large cottage with friends and family and you've got ready made baby sitters - you might want to mention this to them first though!

Enjoy the company

A holiday can seem so much more enjoyable when shared with friends - so why not book a large holiday cottage and spend some quality time away. For those with family further away, a holiday together in "neutral" ground can also be a bonus. Just rent a large holiday cottage between all the family members who you want to holiday with - you'll all have a great time.

Book early

One final thing to mention about large holiday cottages. There aren't too many around; most holiday cottages sleeps 4 - 6 people, so if you know the area you want to holiday in, don't hang around, get your cottage booked now.
