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.

Thanks you very much for taking the time to write a review, and we very sorry you didn’t fully enjoy your stay.
To address your issues
We haven’t ever had a complaint about uncomfortable beds or pillows, we do always ask and it states in our welcome pack if you have any problems please let us know straight away to avoid these sort of problems, we could have bought you fresh pillows or mattress toppers had you let us know you were uncomfortable. The new owners are looking at upgrading the beds for 2017.
With regard to the shower cubicle, again had you contacted us we could and would have quite easily cleared that for you, it really is a shame you didn’t think to let us know.
You’re quite right there are no locks on the bathroom doors as a previous guest took the key, but we will of course now address this issue as soon as possible.
There are mirrors in every bedroom apart from the loft room and we have even left extension leads in cupboards etc so you can easily reach a mirror with your hair dryer, I’m not quite sure how you missed them.
We did get a text from you saying the TV didn’t work which unfortunately we didn’t get immediately but it was followed by another text 2 hours later saying it was working , my brother in law also came to check this, maybe just a case of user error. He also let you know we had 2 spare tv’s at the ready should you need them.
We lived in the loft room for 2 years and always found the tv positioning fine, very sorry you didn’t.
I must agree, with the Cornish sea air the BBQ is a bit rusty so we will replace that.
Unfortunately Cornwall Council, in their wisdom only collect recycling every two weeks, we do our best to help out with this and again had you let us know it was building up we would have come and cleared it for you.
We were not aware of any broken blinds but as previously stated you only had to let us know and we would have come to look at and fix them.
The cleaner did tell you where the extra bedding was and it was used, so you must have found it!
The sofa beds are singles which most people find more convenient sorry you didn't.

Dear Mrs R Jackson
We were very surprised to read on trip advisor of your experience at Sailaway as you said nothing of your complaint whilst staying at Sailaway or at your departure.
We have recently invested in a new top of the range hot tub which was installed along with new decking and lighting a couple of weeks prior to your stay. This model of hot tub is totally different to the previous one. On installation we were supplied and trained on the use, maintenance and health safety. This particular model is nothing like they were 15 years ago, the jets are much more powerful and give a massage as well as heating the water at a higher temperature.
We take great care to ensure our guests have a delightful, relaxing and safe stay with us, and , take pride in providing 99.9% of our guests with a memorable stay as you can see from our previous reviews.
As for the parking we have an allocated space for our guests in front of our office - at the front of the house.
