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 very much so such a lovely review, I am glad you were warm enough it is always a worry for me with caravans being cold but both our vans are quite well insulated and we provide ample electric heaters for the odd night that it does get a bit chilly, I am also happy to hear everything you needed is on hand, we pride ourselves having caravans that are as clean as hotels but as warm and comfortable as your own home.
We provide the linen, tea and coffee as we know how frustrating it can be when you arrive at a holiday home at night not being familiar with the area and ending up having to go and buy provisions just to have a cup of tea :-)
We are working with management to try and implement a walk way as I know it gets very muddy our other van already has a path and we hope this one will be completed by this time next year.
We are quite lucky to have a fantastic maintenance and house keeping team to whom are very quick to rectify and minor faults or issues like running out of gas.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, you do tend to find renting privetly is not only cheaper but gives you a better experience all round.
I look forward to welcoming you back in the future
