School Summer Holiday Cottages

A whole six weeks of entertaining the children on top of everything else can be a struggle, so why not escape for a week or two by heading south and west.

The school holidays are finally here! Now, what to do with them? A whole six weeks of entertaining the children on top of everything else can be a struggle, so why not escape for a week or two by heading west. Leave the children with the grandparents for a romantic break away to recharge your batteries, or take advantage of some true family time and have a holiday to remember in a holiday cottage. 

Granny and Grandpa can come along and relax (and maybe keep an eye on the kids so you can have a quiet dinner out for once?). Or bring your friends and their family for one big fun experience in either a large manor house or two separate cottages side by side. Holiday near the sea for bucket and spade beach days, or stay further in land to enjoy panoramic hilltop views and dog walking havens – the moors are a great place to holiday if you want to bring your four-legged friend.

Whatever you are looking for in a summer break, choose the flexibility a holiday cottage in The West Country will give you. 

We have 615 self catering cottages for the summer holidays.
