May Half Term Holiday Cottages

With a cool breeze and warm sunshine, May marks the start of summer and many happy times to come. Kick start your summer properly and hop in the car; a holiday in a luxury self-catering cottage awaits. Browse through our list of 626 available cottages and find your favourite. All of our cottages are handpicked; personally inspected and fully equipped so your holiday is the best it can be.

Spend your days exploring deep, green countryside and skim stones across lazy streams. Follow the scent of salty air and head to the coast, spending long days on the beach flitting between soft sands and cool sea. Perch on a bench and watch as life goes by, before heading to a local restaurant to dine on fresh, local produce lovingly crafted and prepared by skilled hands. Then, when you've had your fill of exploring, turn your attention to relaxing. Throw yourself into the holiday spirit and land in your own private self-catering cottage, primed and ready for you. An early summer break in your own slice of paradise can give you the chance to unwind, catch up and settle into a slower, more considered rhythm.  

Spend your May-Half Term in a Luxury Retreat

Whether you are looking for a solo retreat or want to bring the whole family away for a much-needed break, May half term provides ample opportunity to escape to greener grass for a while. However you'd like to spend your time, our cottages offer wide variety and consistent quality. Many of our cottages are dog-friendly too, meaning everyone can join in this May half term.
