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.

I'm sorry to hear that the mattress isn't to your taste. This is a very expensive top spec Hypnos hotel standard mattress (the same one used in Premier Inn nationwide). All of the other reviews we've had about the mattress have said how good it is.

Re-decoration of the hall and stairs including carpets is all paid for and is due to begin shortly. (Persuading and then getting the money out of 8 flats has taken ages but it's now paid for an due to start).
I have asked the maintenance company to increase the strength of the spring on the front door. It should close automatically. This will be fixed this week.
