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 review and we were disappointed to hear that there were sertain aspects of your holiday which were not what you anticipated. The wi-fi hotspot is located in the Games Room rather than in each individual property and your information folder would have directed you to the games room for internet access but you are correct to point out that there is no mobile phone reception. Providing additional cookware is something we will certainly think about to ensure that you are not spending too much holiday time on those household chores. We would have been able to supply additional crockery etc. if we had known at the time that this would have helped. I will also speak to our housekeeping team about the cobweb issue so thank you for pointing that out.
