UK Family Holidays

Self catering cottages are perfect for family holidays

Whether you are planning a short getaway with the children or a celebratory weekend with your extended family, a holiday cottage can offer the perfect escape for every generation.

From cosy nights in with the kids by the fire in the colder months, to barbecues enjoyed in your own private garden during the summer, a break in one of our beautiful properties offers something for everyone. What could be better than escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life to enjoy the company of loved ones and enjoy your time off at an altogether slower pace?

With holidays in the UK becoming increasingly popular amongst us Brits, there are more cottages than ever before for you to choose from – you're bound to find something to make everyone happy. Self-catering holidays are also a great idea for families visiting from overseas. Whether it's your first time in the UK, or you're a returning visitor, a cottage break can allow you the freedom to get out of the cities and explore the beautiful countryside that we are so lucky to have. With rolling hills and stunning coastal paths, there is so much to see and do and it's made even more special when you can return to your private cottage with some of your home comforts.

The idea of a staycation in the UK has so many benefits for families – you can cut out the stresses of airport security and long transfers and replace them with the convenience of driving right up to the door of a proper home from home for you and the kids to enjoy. Added to that there is the obvious value for money element, with costs of an average holiday cottage being far lower than a hotel or B&B on a price per head basis.

So many of the cottages and houses we have to offer are close to great family attractions including museums and wildlife parks as well as having great walking and bike riding routes nearby.
