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.
Booking was straight forward and good communication regarding payment and facilities. The owner was very courteous and prompt with replies.

Thank you for setting out your comments on trip advisor – we take all comments posted very seriously and hope to learn from your stay with us to help in the running of our lodge for future holiday makers.
You are correct we do not allow dogs in our lodge and I am concerned to learn that you thought you could smell wet dog on arrival – I wish you had let me know at the time as I would certainly have despatched the housekeeper down to sort out any problem immediately. I have spoken to her today and asked her to make sure that the lodge is vented as fully as possible on future turn around days just in case someone leaving on the day that a new guest arrives has taken advantage of a last minute dip in the hot tub and has had wet towels lying around just before leaving – we do have a dehumidifier for the housekeeper to use on turnaround days and I will make sure that she takes extra special care to use it on future tight turnaround days .
Thank you for letting me know about the hob light I will let maintenance know to check that this week.
I have spoken to Kevin who manages the hot tubs on site and he assures me that your hot tub was checked daily and chemicals added when needed . He does try to check hot tubs to least disturb guests ie will not ask you to get out if hot tub already in use but will return later – it may be that you were out at the time he called to check the water. He said that the hot tub at Lodge 46 ran well during the week of your stay without any reported problems.
I shall have a look at the settees when I am down next week – when I last visited in June they were fine but I shall check next week and if there are problems with the springs then will make a decision as to whether to replace them. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Likewise we will check the mattress on the main double bed and I will attempt to remove the crayon marks that you have reported in the base of the bath – I can’t imagine why children were crayoning in the bath always a surprise what people let children do when on holidays!
I am glad that the site were able to recalibrate your leisure passes for you to be able to continue to use the leisure facilities. I have notified reception today of the problem that you had last week encountering a nail in the sauna – they are sending down someone to look at this straight the way today as this is the first that has been reported to them and obviously important to remedy to ensure that no one else comes across it.
We have had lots of guests staying in Valley Lodge 46 who have all had very good holidays down at Honicombe and I am sorry that you felt the lodge disappointed on this occassion. We have always responded quickly to guests requests for maintenance but as this is the first that I have heard from you I apologise that I could not therefore rectify anything during the course of your stay.
