Cottages for the Half Term Holidays

The half term holidays can often be a rather expensive time to take the family on holiday, especially with food and travel to take into consideration. Luckily, it doesn’t need to be that way, as a self catering holiday cottage can often work out to be cheaper than an equivalent hotel, especially for larger families.

If you want to head a bit further afield for your next break, we also list cottages in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy. You can either choose to fly or drive down… the choice is yours.

If you want to search by availability for the half term holidays, you can use our ‘availability search’ using the search form below. Just a few points to note:

  1. 2 night breaks must start on Fridays or Saturdays.
  2. 3 night breaks start on Fridays.
  3. 4 night breaks start on Mondays.
  4. 7 night breaks vary by start date, but are usually Friday or Saturdays.
