School Holiday Getaways in the UK

Self-catering cottages remain the most cost effective way of taking your brood away during the school holidays.

Not only that but the flexibility and privacy of having your own place where the children can run free in the safety of an enclosed garden or where extended families and friends can stay together cannot be underestimated. The best part of cottage stays is that they are ever appealing, particularly when we can offer you such a diverse range of properties fit for any time of year, for any size of family. 

February Half Term

February Half Term falls at the time of year when we all need a break, kids and adults alike. After those first few tough weeks back at work and school after Christmas, a UK getaway during February Half Term is the perfect solution. Choose from countryside cottages that take you to wintry fields and glens, coastal cottages near the bracing sea air and much, much more.

Easter Holidays

The first extended holiday of the year, the Easter Holidays are perfect for a long, springtime self-catering break. To really embrace the Easter spirit, why not book a holiday cottage on a farm, or in the heart of the British countryside to see the birth of spring in action? But wherever you choose, our holiday cottages give you the chance to rest and recharge with your family and friends at the start of a new season.

May Half Term

Book a coastal cottage to welcome the beginning of summer, a city break filled with fun days out, or a large luxury home in the country to simply kick back and relax during May Half Term. The choice is yours, but either way, we’re sure a UK getaway is just the ticket to get yourself and the kids ready for the last stretch before the summer break.

Summer Holidays

It’s finally here – 6 weeks of fun, sun and a little bit of chaos thrown in for good measure! Keeping everyone entertained during the summer holidays can be a little tricky to say the least but treating you and your loved ones a holiday cottage somewhere new or familiar gives everyone a chance to have some summer fun and make unforgettable memories.

October Half Term

Crispy autumn leaves, cold dog walks, muddy wellies and Halloween fun, for those who love this season, there’s no better time to go away than October Half Term. The UK has some amazing historic castles, national trust homes, museums and walks that offer spooky family friendly activities during this time of year, making a cottage getaway the perfect choice for this school holiday.

Christmas Holidays

Whether you want to book pre, post or during the festivities, there’s nothing cosier than a holiday cottage break during the Christmas Holidays. Hot chocolates round the fire, family roast dinners, gift giving, snowman building and no need to prepare your own home to host it! That’s the true beauty of a holiday cottage Christmas.
