Who doesn’t love a good vacation? It’s a chance to get away, to take a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
And so the question isn’t whether or not a vacation is for you, but rather where and when you’d like to go. After all, part of what it means to “get away from it all” is to leave your old routine behind and embrace something new. If you go to the same vacation spot time and again, it may be relaxing, but it probably won’t be as exciting as the first time. As such, you want to find somewhere that has both the shine and excitement of someplace new, while remaining a great place to simply kick back and relax.
One of the great options for a vacation is a cottage in the country, and here are just a few reasons why:
Lovely Country Living
The last century has seen a consistent and dramatic rise in the overall population of cities. From Boston to Berlin to Beijing, cities have exploded in population. Once the country was the “heartland,” where the majority of people resided, and the city was an exciting escape. Today however, those roles have been reversed. Heavily populated cities have created traffic, smog, and for so many of us: stress. City life is now the norm, while country life is an elusive, exciting retreat.
Country cottages are some of the chicest vacation options today, and represent an industry on the rise. Seeking out a cottage in the country can take a good amount of time, but is ultimately well worth the effort. One of the most important things do when seeking these cottages out is to check what the accommodations are like. For example, Hunter Valley accommodation cottages offers a wide range of different options. Do you want a cottage that’s a little more “Little House on the Prairie” and rustic in style? Or perhaps you’re of the mindset that while communing with nature and enjoying rustic past is fun, you still want the comforts the 21st century can offer, and so would like a big-screen TV and Wi-Fi included with your package. Cellars, wine tours, in-house chefs, golf ranges—it’s all yours for the choosing.
If you can’t get enough of the romance of rustic life and nature’s charm, you might well want to look into having a glorious summer wedding in the shadow of a lovely little cottage. Check with your wedding planner to see how a cottage wedding might work, where you might wish it to take place, and what kind of accommodations you’d like to have for your magical day. Accommodation cottages also generally offer deals for weddings and other social gatherings, so be sure to ask about that.
Whether you’re looking to get away from it all for a while or start a new beginning with someone special, you might well find a cottage like these perfectly accommodating.
