Cottages for a short break

If you’re looking for a mid-week break or long weekend getaway, we have plenty of gorgeous self-catering cottages that will satisfy your every need. From beautiful coastal cottages to luxury country retreats, that well-deserved short break will finally be yours.

A short break can be all you need to refresh your soul and blow away a few cobwebs. For a few days away on a special occasion, or a last minute 'need to get out of here' getaway mid-week, we've many a soul-reviving retreat for you to enjoy at reduced rates. In a climate where spring and autumn can feel like summer in disguise, a weekend break can be sooner than you think.

 

Spring and Autumn Breaks

Enjoy a peaceful pace as summer crowds fade away, while soaking up the milder climate the South West offers. Get away from it all and spend three or four days surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty and enjoy your well-deserved time off.

 

Summer Holidays

Offering sunny skies, a warm sun, the gentle sea breeze on the coast and open expanses of moorland to explore, summer in the South West is the stuff that dreams are made of.

 

Christmas Escapes

For fun with all the family or just two of you, why not break up the madness of Christmas and take some time out with a short break in the South west. We have a number of beautiful holiday homes that will leave you totally enchanted at this festive time of year.

 

New Year Breaks

Make this New Year one to remember; escape from it all to a rural hideaway or find a cottage in the heart of a community, and enjoy with friends and family. See in the New Year your way.

 

Winter Holidays

With the warm oceanic climate keeping the South West warmer than the rest of the country, a winter escape is always an option. Wrap up warm and wander across empty beaches and the countryside. Watch a storm passing by while sitting in front of a roaring fire. This time of year can offer something for everyone. Dog restrictions have also been lifted off many beaches, so you can bring your four-legged friend along too.

 

We have self-catering accommodation only a short drive away, for that much needed time off.
