August Bank Holiday Cottages

Escape to the South and West this August bank holiday, with one of our 82 holiday cottages available from the Isle of Wight to far west Cornwall. Grab a break before the schools go back and sink your toes into some sand one more time, or get out of the summer heat with a shady woodland hideaway. Read more

Whether you're looking for a romantic bank holiday break for two, or to get the family together before the school uniform rush, our selection of handpicked and inspected cottages for the August bank holiday are ideal. Get away to enjoy the August weather with no worries, with our friendly team on hand to ensure you have a stress-free break.

Not sure where to go this August? With cottages across the South and West, we're sure we've got something that will tick your boxes. The Isle of Wight is easy to reach yet feels like another world, with the gentle pace of island life lulling you into a relaxing holiday. Hampshire and the New Forest give you the magic of both coast and forest, and between the two you'll never be stuck for things to do.

Start heading west into Dorset and Somerset, and go fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast or simply settle in and admire the lush green landscape. By the time you reach Devon and Cornwall, a sea view is never far away and coves and beaches are just waiting to be explored, but the likes of Dartmoor provide a wildness hard to find in the UK.

Wherever you choose to spend your August bank holiday, we've got exceptional holiday homes that will make sure you have a good holiday.
