Get away from it all with a short break to a stunning weekend retreat. Whether you have a couple of nights or a long weekend to spare, a short break at one of these holiday homes is a sure fire way to recharge your batteries.
For long weekends away you could fill up on tapas from an apartment in Barcelona. Or hop on the Eurostar for city breaks in Paris, Brussels or Avignon.
Alternatively combine a mini break in one of the apartments in London with a show in the West End. Or live the good life in a choice of holiday cottages in the Cotwsolds, Cornwall or the Lake District.
Whatever you're looking for out of a short break, there's a villa, cottage or penthouse suite with your name on it!
“lovely stay” Lovely cottage, great surroundings, wonderful stay!
We stayed at the Stackyard for 6 nights and we really appreciated the place; It is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It is big enough for 4 people. A real home away from home!

Thanks for your kind words. The Woodburner has been the best addition to the house, even more so when we are on the back end of an atlantic storm.
Great to hear you & your daughters had a great time and we hope you managed to play some of the games with them and make the best of your time.
We hope you can come back some other time.
