If you've got children, May half-term provides an excellent opportunity to gather together the family and escape for a while on a dream holiday. Book yourself a luxury self-catering cottage and catch up properly - it's much easier without the distractions of everyday life. However many are in your gang, we'll help you find the perfect cottage. Many of our properties have a games room too, so the kids can keep themselves entertained. Or if your little ones are something of a water baby, why not book a holiday cottage with a swimming pool? We have shared and private pools to offer, so take your pick.

May isn't just about half term though. We also have two bank holidays to look forward to, as well as plenty of chances for spontaneous short breaks and much anticipated weeks away ahead of the summer. From idyllic one-bed retreats up to huge 8-bedroom properties big enough for all your nearest and dearest, you can tailor your dream holiday. It's good news for Fido too, as lots of our cottages are dog-friendly.
