Luxury Midweek Breaks in the Cotswolds

Take advantage of the quieter midweek slot and get great value for money

UK short breaks are very popular, with a Monday to Friday midweek break being a great option. There are many advantages to this midweek holiday slot, including missing the crowds at popular attractions and avoiding the terrible Friday night traffic, but for many the main benefit is value for money. A midweek break will often cost the same as or even less than a two night weekend break, yet you get a very relaxing four night country break.

Another reason that midweek breaks are a great option is that there is often a lot more availability and therefore greater choice. With over 100 family friendly holiday cottages, many of which are also pet friendly, we have a good chance of finding you the perfect place to spend time with your family and friends, even for last minute bookings.

Almost all of our cottages and houses offer a standard mid-week break, allowing you to arrive at your home from home on Monday afternoon and stay up to 4 nights. Of course, you still get all the other benefits of a holiday cottage including your own space to relax and unwind, as well as the convenience and flexibility that a self-catering holiday offers.
