May Day Holiday Cottages

Whatever the occasion we have an incredible Big Cottage for you

A luxury mini break in the middle of spring is the ultimate way to rejuvenate and relax in style. The May Day Bank Holiday is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Pack your bags, hop in the car and get away for a weekend break (or longer) with your loved ones.

Celebrate the bank holiday with your friends and enjoy a glass of bubbly or two in the hot tub, before heading out into the nearby city for a night on the town. Or whisk the kids away for an unforgettable mini break, complete with swimming pools, tennis courts and plenty of hidden spots in the garden to explore!
