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.

Thank you taking the time to leave a review, however, as we were totally unaware of any issues until you handed over a letter as you were leaving we had no chance to rectify any of the perceived problems.It was a shame that you did not contact us immediately especially as our front door is only a few yards away, you had all the contact details in the cottage in case we were not at home and we would have moved you all into Rose Barn straight away.We are sorry that the fridge freezer developed a fault and have ordered a replacement, mattresses are a matter of personal taste but they are renewed on a regular basis.We take on board about the lighting, all the cottages have outside lights that come on automatically but we have now provided each cottage with a torch as well.
