Weekend breaks

A weekend break in a self-catering rental, for example, country cottages, holiday cottage, apartment, house or pine lodge, offers you the opportunity of taking a short holiday that is a "home from home". Short weekend cottage breaks are perfect for anyone with a young family that requires space for children to play and run around, which is not generally desirable in a hotel room.

Please click on any photographs shown to view details of weekend breaks. Short weekend and mid-week breaks are generally available in all our self-catering rentals during periods outwith school holidays and bank holidays depending on availability.
