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 taking time out to write a wonderful review of your longer than usual stay with us.
It is fantastic to learn that the house can deliver a comfortable, normal day to day living experience by 6 adults staying longer than the usual weekend or week long visit, and serves as an ideal base for those who wish to explore the delights that Lakeland and the local area has to offer.
We are glad that you would recommend us, it was indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the local community for your time with us (our local quizmaster for the Sunday night quiz enjoyed your regular attendance). We hope that you completed your projects in good time and wish you much success with them and your future studies.

Kindest regards to you all.
