Spring and Autumn Short Breaks in The West Country apply when the holiday starts within these dates:

3 September 2014 to 11 November 2014

25 March 2015 to 7 July 2015

2 September 2015 to 10 November 2015

This is a somewhat busier time and some property Owners prefer to get a booking for a full week, so they may not offer short breaks until a few weeks before the holiday.

Summer Short Breaks in The West Country apply when the holiday starts within these dates:

2 July 2014 to 9 September 2014

1 July 2015 to 8 September 2015

These can be booked within different lead times depending on the property.

Christmas Short Breaks in The West Country apply when the holiday spans Christmas Day. These can be booked after 1 November.

New Year Short Breaks in The West Country apply when the holiday spans New Year's Eve. They can be booked after 1 October subject to Owner approval, or more generally after 1 November.

5 November 2014 to 23 December 2014

7 January 2015 to 31 March 2015

4 November 2015 to 22 December 2015

In this quieter period short breaks can be booked at any time in advance of the holiday.

The prices for short breaks are worked out as follows:

2 nights - 60% of the weekly rent

3 nights - 70% of the weekly rent

4 nights - 75% of the weekly rent

5 nights - 80% of the weekly rent

6 nights - 90% of the weekly rent 

 

For short breaks beginning on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, the rent of the following Saturday applies. For those beginning on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, the rent for the previous Saturday applies.
