Great British breaks (11822)

Discover 1,000s of smashing holiday cottages right on your doorstep. Dotted around some of the most jaw-droppingly stunning parts of the country, these gorgeous places to stay make for great British breaks whatever the weather.



The Victorians popularised British coastal resorts, but more recently we’ve ignored the coast on our doorstep, opting for the Med and further afield. From the glitz of Brighton to the rugged coastline of Cornwall, pack your bucket and spade and don’t forget to pick up a stick of rock when you get there!



If you’d rather escape the madding crowd, go for a rural retreat. We’ve got farmhouses and country cottages in areas of outstanding beauty all over Britain. Fill your days exploring the Brecon Beacons, rambling across the Lake District or scaling the peaks of the Scottish Highlands.

Thank you for your supportive review. Cartmel is a great place for pubs and eating, as is Allithwaite, both short car journey or within walking distance.

Thank you very much for your kind words about Balvattan Farmhouse. I am sorry you didn't find your pillow comfortable. We provide quality spare pillows in the wardrobes and offer various different thicknesses, firmnesses etc. Since there were only 3 of you staying in the house, we would have been delighted for you to have tried any of the pillows from any of the other bed. I'm sorry you didn't contact me during your stay to confirm you could have pinched a pillow off another bed. We all have our own personal sleeping requirements and personally I hate poor quality pillows. I will check all the pillows which are only a year old, this weekend. If you come again, please let me know your pillow preference and which room you want to sleep in and I will ensure your pillow of choice is available.

Many thanks for the review. After driving such along way I'm glad to know that you made the most of your weekend. Certainly sitting in the hot tub gazing up at the stars is special! Fortunately being both near the sea and not having light pollution means you can enjoy a larger expanse of sky, and if there's only a little cloud cover then the night sky is awesome, - the same with the sunsets at the local beach.
Thanks again for the lovely review, and we hope to welcome you both again soon!

Many thanks for the glowing review. It's great to know that your special weekend went as well as it did!
Personally I think relying on public transport to get you to a rural location, somewhere new and unknown, was quite brave of you, so I was more than happy to help in any way I could.
Blackthorn's location is the best of both worlds, as although we're situated on the edge of a village with stunning rural views, we are quite close to the Hastings/Rye trunk road - served by a regular bus service running between both Hastings and Rye railway stations, which in turn have regular trains from both London Charing Cross, and London St Pancras via Ashford. We even have a small country station at nearby Three Oaks on the Hastings to Rye line where I have collected guests from in the past. So, idyllically rural but not remote!
Anyway, many thanks again for the review, and we hope to welcome you again soon.
