salamis of the Pyrenees or the Alps, there's still a whole lot
more available in the UK. Not to mention, it's possible to book
cottage accommodation in the UK in August - which is virtually

an insider's knowledge of the particular region, opting to book
with a local cottage agency is certainly the way to go.
