Why Cottage Breaks in Devon and Cornwall Are the Perfect Budget Holiday

The economic recession has made people think much more carefully about how they spend their money, and holiday habits are changing to fit in with a new ethos of maximum return for every pound spent. As the pound weakens against the Euro and Dollar more UK holidaymakers are planning short breaks in the UK this year and the tourist industry is already reporting a rise in UK bookings. Cottage breaks in Devon and Cornwall are the perfect way to plan a budget holiday in one of the most beautiful regions of the country.

Devon and Cornwall are two of the most popular destinations for visitors and taking a cottage holiday is the perfect way to explore this wonderful region. Booking a cottage online is easy and as everyone is anxious to attract as many visitors as possible this year there are plenty of bargains to be found, especially if you book early. A cottage holiday gives you much more freedom to plan your own break around your interests, your own timeframe and your budget.

Cottage holidays in Devon and Cornwall can range from a cosy cottage perfect for an intimate getaway for two up to barn conversion complexes that are perfect for large family groups. Cottage holidays are designed to be self-catering, although if you get bored with cooking every night there are plenty of top quality restaurants throughout the region to choose from for a special meal out. The south west has an enviable reputation for some of the finest local produce in the country and over two hundred miles of coastline means that the freshest fish and shellfish are always available. Taking a cottage holiday gives you the chance to taste some of the best produce the region has to offer, cooked exactly the way you like it!

Cottage holidays are an ideal choice if you plan to go exploring a particular region. In Devon and Cornwall you are never far from the coast, fascinating historical landmarks and even theme parks for the kids. Two of the UK’s best national parks are situated in Devon and Cornwall has its own, wild beauty that takes you back to another age, rich in folklore and myth. However, both counties are also very much in touch with the 21st century and offer excellent modern shopping centres, theatre and concert venues and some of the most exciting and innovative attractions anywhere in the UK.

If you enjoy the outdoors, Devon and Cornwall are perfect for a wide range of adventure activities – from kayaking and rock-climbing to mountain biking and paragliding. The South West Coastal Walk allows hikers to explore the coastline, from the breathtaking and wild north coast to the ancient Jurassic coastline of East Devon. By using a cottage holiday as your base, you can build up your own itinerary around your interests and budget accordingly. With a little planning and forethought, you can make your pound go that much further.

One of the common myths is that holidays in the UK are more expensive than taking a trip abroad, but with the changing economic picture, that believe is no longer relevant. The south west may not have the same amount of sunshine as the Canary Islands or Turkey, but its climate is very mild for the majority of the year and the advantages more than make up for the odd spot of rain! Cottage breaks in Devon and Cornwall make an ideal budget holiday for families of any size and their popularity is growing – a visit to this stunning part of the world will show you why!

If in the instance of your limousine not arrive on your big day, customers are entitled to claim their deposit from their limousine operator.

We have some tips and advice when it comes to hiring a limousine before the big day.

2. Wherever possible, view the limousine before hire at the companies’ premises you are hiring from. You don’t want a old limo arriving when you expect a new style limousine.

6. Give full details of your hire and ask the limo hire company how much time you have the limo for, i.e. any extra charges you may not be aware of, some companies charge extra for photos etc.

7. Remember Companies charge if there is excessive rubbish or mess in the limo when you have finished using it for your occasion. It is worth considering taking a plastic bag to place rubbish in at the end of your travel.

8. Drunkenness and bad or abusive behavior can result in the limo company terminating your agreement, even if you may be 50 miles from home. Do not allow any one member of your party to ruin things for you.

Most limo companies will do everything in their power to provide good service to their customers, including making sure that they do not overbook their limos and ensuring that the driver arrives on time. It is important to remember that the company with the lowest cost is not always the best company for the job.

Security Expert Perspective As Pirates Execute British Tourist

Dr. Mark D. Yates the British American security expert and security consultant from A Security One Stop Shop suggests regrets that yet another innocent British family have been targeted by overseas pirates. This article Pirates to execute British tourist is a follow on article to other articles written by the British American security expert about the subject of piracy and kidnap for ransom.

Businessman Malcolm Robertson aged 64, his wife and her brother John Clee had taken time out to enjoy a leisurely sailing trip around an Island in southern Thailand. The Robertson’s were fulfilling a life-long dream by spending the winter months sailing around warmer climes in his 44ft yacht with his wife. Both he and his wife were highly experienced and qualified yacht masters who had previously sailed around the world.

Three Burmese fishermen supplemented their income by including marine piracy in their job description. These three pirates boarded the moored yacht and attempted to steal a raft. Dr. Mark D. Yates the British American security expert advises that Mr. Robertson disturbed the pirates and attempted to stop the theft. When he shouted for help the situation escalated very quickly and the pirates murdered Mr. Robertson by slitting his throat and hitting him before throwing his body overboard. Mrs Robertson was then forced to steer their yacht to the shore.

A local police Captain reports that John Clee informed him his sister was tied and bound and kept hostage for 10 hours. Fearing for her life the pirates fled in the Robertson’s raft when they saw National Park employees passing close by in a boat. Mrs Robertson and Mr. Clee, although injured survived the assault.

Dr. Mark D. Yates the British American security expert continues, Mr Robertson’s body has yet to be recovered, but the three pirates have been arrested on suspicion of murdering Mr Robertson.

Dr. Mark D. Yates from A Security One Stop Shop offers the following security advice which is taken directly from his security expert files for minimising the risk of pirates executing British tourist while onboard their own marine vessel.

1: If you are not security trained, never confront pirates and try to prevent them stealing from you.

Dr. Mark D. Yates the British American security expert advises that when Pirates execute British tourists it’s time to give serious consideration to receiving professional security training.

Bangalore Airport

Replacing HAL Bangalore International Airport, the all-new Bengaluru International Airport started its operations on the night of May 23, 2008. Located at Devanahalli, almost 50 km from the central business district of Bengaluru, construction of the new airport was started in July 2005. It was ranked as the fourth fastest growing international airport, as per World Airport Traffic 2007 report, released by Airports Council International. Occupying an area of 4050 acres, Bengaluru International Airport was primarily designed to handle only 3.5 million passengers per year. However, it was later redesigned and its handling capacity increased to about 12 million passengers every year.

The expansion of the Bengaluru International Airport (BAIL) also resulted in an increase in the size of its terminal, number of aircraft stands, new taxiway layouts and supporting infrastructure. All the aircraft stands in BAIL have a fueling pit, a facility never seen before in Indian airports. The airport currently has one runway, which can accommodate all types of aircrafts, including the Airbus A380. The fourth-busiest airport in India, coming shortly after Mumbai, New Delhi and Chennai, Bangalore International Airport is going to have business centers, tax-free shops, entertainment centers, malls and office space very soon.
