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!

I'm sorry to hear that the mattress isn't to your taste. This is a very expensive top spec Hypnos hotel standard mattress (the same one used in Premier Inn nationwide). All of the other reviews we've had about the mattress have said how good it is.

Re-decoration of the hall and stairs including carpets is all paid for and is due to begin shortly. (Persuading and then getting the money out of 8 flats has taken ages but it's now paid for an due to start).
I have asked the maintenance company to increase the strength of the spring on the front door. It should close automatically. This will be fixed this week.
