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 for your kind words. We are so pleased that you and your family had a good time. You mentioned during your stay about how light the rooms are and how that may affect children sleeping- thank you for the feedback, which is always welcome. It is a south facing cottage, which is good in one way, but we understand the point completely. We have curtains and blinds already as you know, but they are light in colour to keep the cottage cheerful, so we have fitted black out linings to the curtains and we have ordered a black out blind in a dark colour for the large rooflight in the loft bedroom. Hopefully, that means it will be bright and cheerful during the day, but dark when you want it to be too. Many thanks again for your constructive feedback- much appreciated.
