Weekend cottage breaks

Short weekend breaks in cottages

Bourton on the Water, an excellent place for a weekend cottage holidayWeekend and indeed midweek short breaks are generally available during the low season although there are cottages that offer weekend breaks all year round and have a flexible attitude. Short breaks are very popular with many people in this time starved age, and indeed pensioners often prefer a short break, weekend or mid-week for good value.  Because all of our cottages are of a good quality and many accept credit card bookings, you can book a cottage for that special weekend break with confidence. The minimum number of nights will vary from cottage to cottage, but a 3 night weekend break and 4 night mid-week break are fairly usual. Large cottages may be booked for just 1 or 2 night short breaks.
