Character Cottages

Short Breaks

Choose your own start and end date

At Character Cottages, many of our holiday cottages operate a short or flexible break policy, meaning that you are in complete control of when your holiday starts and ends. This means that your group can book a cottage to fit perfectly around your other plans and timetables, allowing you to make the most of your time.

Unlike other companies who prefer to keep to the traditional Saturday – Saturday breaks, we are able to accommodate various scenarios, all thanks to the owners and housekeepers who we work alongside, who are flexible to meet guests needs.

A great example of where this really works is with bank holidays. With our standard weekend breaks ending on a Monday, you wouldn't automatically be able to spend the bank holiday itself in the holiday cottage. However, as we are able to adapt our booking slots to meet your needs, we can add an additional night for a percentage of the weekly rate, creating a Tuesday departure date and enabling you to make the most of the long weekend in the cottage.

Short breaks can include weekends, mid-weeks, or other combinations of days and the prices you will be quoted will normally be calculated by reference to the underlying booking "slots" across which your dates cross. For more information, simply contact us.
