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 for your great Review! We are really pleased that you all had such a good time and particularly delighted that you enjoyed the Pool so much.
We do offer Towels if needed and mention this in our Advert and the Information sheet that we send out before our Guests arrive but we do use an outside Company for this and we feel that they do charge rather a lot and so we recommend that our Guests bring their own Towels for free!
We look forward to your next visit as we know you are looking forward to finding another excuse to return and stay in the Lodge again!
