Weekend Breaks

Leave your worries behind for a few days and head into the country...

What could be better than jumping in the car on Friday afternoon and escaping to a countryside retreat for a relaxing weekend with friends, family or a partner? Enjoy a lazy brunch around the dining table or out on the patio Saturday morning, followed by an invigorating country walk in the afternoon and stroll to the local pub for a delicious Sunday lunch.

Perfect for evenings in with friends

Our weekend breaks are great for families that want to take a short trip with the children, but don't want to wait until the school holidays and face paying the premium prices! As the weekend breaks run from the Friday afternoon, you don't have to take the children out of school, you can pick up them up and head straight to your holiday cottage to enjoy two action packed days. You wouldn't have to waste any of the holiday travelling on the Saturday, so you would get two full days to spend at your leisure.

Having a base which meets the whole groups' needs makes your weekend break convenient and hassle free. Well equipped kitchens for preparing home cooked meals, relaxing sitting rooms for escaping into a book or playing games with your fellow guests, and outside space to enjoy the fresh air, are all part of the package when you book a holiday cottage for your weekend break. As well as the facilities mentioned, many of our cottages have a wealth of great character and period features like original oak beams, flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces. Spending a couple of days in such quirky and pretty surroundings will certainly make your short stay extra special.
