Holidaymakers looking for cosy cottages in the English countryside still want all mod cons, a new survey shows.
According to English Country Cottages, there is a growing trend among holidaymakers looking to book a new kind of holiday accommodation in the UK.
‘Moditional’ properties, which cover both traditional features as well as the latest modern facilities, are increasing in popularity.
The number one consideration among British holidaymakers when booking a getaway in the UK proved to be a real open fire.
More than 90 per cent of people asked said that an open fireplace was their ideal of a holiday in the countryside.
With features such as a thatched roof, a swimming pool or hot tub, a bar, an aga and a walk-in wardrobe making the top ten, there is a clear trend of wishing to mix old and new.
Geoff Cowley, managing director of English Country Cottages said, ‘When choosing a holiday home, it seems holidaymakers are looking for the perfect combination of the traditional features of country cottage but with the comfort and style of a modern conversion.’
Respondents also agreed that the most important room in a holiday property was the living room.
The rise of the ‘staycation’ has meant that more and more Brits are choosing to spend their holidays on home shores.
