Your first method to narrow the list of cottages will be the number of guests that can be accommodated. Some large self catering properties will have family rooms or dormitory style rooms for the children and others will have sofa beds. Some groups prefer to keep the communal rooms separate from sleeping arrangements so be sure to check the bedroom layout.
If you intend on mainly dining at the property it will be a good idea to check the kitchen inventory. Most large properties have well stocked kitchens with catering items such as a cooker, fridge, freezer and microwave as standard. Some self catering properties will also have a dishwasher. Also check to see if they offer catered services, eg some properties bring in outside caterers who organise medieval banquets, murder mystery weekends and themed feasts for parties and celebrations like 40th or 5oth birthdays, or a Wedding Anniversary.
Some groups like to stay in properties that offer a swimming pool. You may wish to opt for an indoor pool that can be used in all weather or an outdoor pool that you can sit around and have a barbecue next to. It can be so relaxing to have a barbecue on a warm summer's day next to a pool that you can cool off in.
