Ever wonder what travellers take home the most as a reminder of their best British holiday? We came across some interesting tidbits we wanted to share with you, courtesy of a recent study done by, one of the nation’s premier self-catering holidaymakers.

Out of 1,000 surveyed consumers

-16% say wild country flowers
-15% say the sea
-9% say freshly cut grass
-1 in 5 are so keen to keep their holiday memories alive that they even turn their own homes into replicas of their holiday pads, adding furnishings and decor reminiscent of a fabulous stay

However, we think most would agree that the scent of a proper English breakfast is definitely the most comforting and relaxing, the smokey scents left by fresh farmhouse bacon, sausages and eggs lingering in the air triggers instant recollections of security and nostalgia and there’s no better way to immerse yourself in this bubble of bliss than booking a cottage of your own.
