Best UK city breaks 2014 (16)

Celebrate the best of British and book a city break in the UK in 2015. From living it up in London to exploring the historical city of York, there’s something for everyone. Head to Wales to take a city break in Cardiff with its fantastic shopping and buzzing nightlife. Visit Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo or have a laugh at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Choose Belfast for award-winning restaurants, bars, galleries and theatres. Soak in the atmosphere in Bath with its architectural wonders and visit the Thermae Bath Spa.


Oxford, the 'city of dreaming spires' oozes history with its world-famous colleges and museums. For more history, stay in Nottingham to learn about the legend of Robin Hood or Canterbury to explore its magnificent cathedral. If you’re a Beatles fan, book an apartment or townhouse in Liverpool to visit the world famous Cavern Club and some of the many galleries and museums. 2015 is set to be another great year for the UK so contact the owner to book the perfect place for you.

"Very conveniently located and well equipped holiday let flat"

The flat is just perfect for two people to enjoy a perfect holiday. We'll equipped kitchen. The flat is just 15 minutes bus ride away from city centre. The toilet flash is a bit dodgy but works after … More

When a guest arrives they are met and shown how everything works. These guests arrived outwith the normal booking time and were left a key. I called to see them the following day and asked if everything was alright and was advised that it was. Had the guests said they had difficulty flushing the toilet I would have shown them how to do so. It should be noted that the train station is only 5 minutes walk from the apt and it takes 5 minutes to reach the city centre Hope this helps to clarify things.
