Half Term Breaks in the UK

Half Term Breaks in the UK

Half-term cottages

Treat the family to a fun-filled break on their next half-term holiday. There’s no need to travel far - you’ll find great destinations right here in the UK. From action-packed holidays by the beach to quiet retreats in the countryside, there’s a location for everyone to fall in love with.

Our family-friendly cottages are well-equipped with all the necessities and added home comforts you need to enjoy your holiday. With great deals and special offers on thousands of holiday cottages across the UK, it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune to get out with the kids this half term.

Half-term cottages for memorable family breaks

Self-catering cottages are perfect for short breaks with the family. You’ll all have plenty of space to chill out and relax, in accommodation that feels just like a cosy home from home. You can even bring the whole family along with our dog-friendly cottages - your pup will love exploring his new surroundings just as much as you do!

Whether you’re looking for a luxury holiday home with bags of style or perhaps a traditional cottage in the countryside, we’ve got plenty for you to choose from. Just let our team know what you’ve got in mind and we’ll help you plan the perfect half-term break with the family. 

Choose from sandy beaches and rural countryside

It can be a challenge to choose a destination that the whole family will love. If you all love being by the seaside, then a holiday in Brighton or Barmouth will offer you plenty to do. Enjoy fish and chips on the seafront before heading to the beach for some rock pooling. If you’re looking for some of the best coastal views in the country, head down to Cornwall or Devon where golden beaches and aquamarine shores await.

For a walking holiday in some of the most scenic spots in Britain, head over to an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB). The Yorkshire Dales, Cotswolds and Shropshire are all home to beautiful AONBs, recognised for their breathtaking views. Whichever you choose, you’ll find great walking routes across rolling hills, wild heathland, or sleepy thatched villages.

In need of some inspiration?

It’s likely you’ll want to plan some days out before you arrive. If you’re stuck for ideas, then we’re here to help. Looking to get out and explore all the local natural attractions? You might find the ten best caves in the UK to visit and the nine best lakes in the UK guides to come in handy.

If you’ll be bringing your walking boots along, make sure to check out the 29 great winter walks in the UK and the best summer walks in the UK. For coastal walks that can be enjoyed at any time of the year, take a look at the best beaches in the UK.
