Fantastic UK holidays are available at thousands of private holiday homes dotted up and down the country. Whether you fancy cream teas in Devon, vibrant city breaks in London or a Highland fling in Scotland, there are plenty of UK breaks that really cut the mustard.
Explore England and its varied landscape – spend your break in a charming Cotswold cottage or visit the Lake District or the Norfolk Broads. In Wales, book a city break in Cardiff or Swansea, test out your surfing skills on the Gower or find out why so many fall in love with Snowdonia and Anglesey.
Go to Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo. You could take to the slopes in Aviemore or get back to nature on the Isle of Skye. Northern Ireland has plenty to tempt the traveller too: visit Belfast, the walled city of Derry or see the natural beauty of the Fermanagh Lakelands.

Thanks for your comments regarding the French doors as I was unaware of any problem regarding draughts as I had not had comments previously.
This morning I checked the doors and all the draught stripping was in place and the doors fitted tightly to the frame apart from the bottom of the leading door which has moved perhaps 1 or 2mm. away from the frame It was exceptionally windy the weekend you stayed (storm Angus) but nevertheless I shall get the carpenter in to check the problem and hopefully solve it.
