Some people opt to take more shorter breaks or midweek breaks throughout the year instead of a solid two or three week summer holiday.  Long weekends or short breaks are generally taken over two, three or four nights.  The UK has a plethora of options from seaside fishermen’s cottages to mountain top cabins or city apartments and huge castles.

If you enjoy exploring the many corners of the UK you will enjoy browsing our quirky, quaint and quite simply beautiful holiday homes.
