Avoid the stresses of overseas travel, and take advantage of what is closer to home by staying on home soil this spring. Enjoy gorgeous beaches, breathtaking mountain ranges, rolling countryside and alluring towns and cities right on your doorstep.
We're giving you 8 reasons why you should book a luxury cottage holiday this spring:
1. SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPES
Great Britain is a fantastic place for a luxury cottage holiday. From the never-ending vistas in the Lake District (which you can admire from one of our Lake District cottages) to the serene landscapes surrounding our Yorkshire luxury cottages, Cornwall’s rugged and charming coastline, the honey-stoned villages in the Cotswolds, and more, you have the perfect excuse to get out and explore!
Head to Cumbria this spring and explore the exquisite lakes and their surrounding peaks, valleys, villages and fells.
2. NO NEED FOR A PASSPORT
There’s only one week to go before you jet off abroad and you can’t find your passport, or worse, you find that it has expired… Booking a UK holiday home means you can avoid the hassle that comes with overseas travel and the added expense of purchasing an expensive new passport!!
3. DOG-FRIENDLY DESTINATIONS
Holidaying in the UK gives you the chance to take your four-legged friends away with you, and spring means most of the country’s glorious beaches are open to our dogs – lucky for them, their owners are also welcome at our luxury cottages! There are many excellent dog-friendly destinations in the UK, including dog-friendly beaches in Wales, wide-open spaces in Devon, secluded estuaries in Cornwall – the list goes on. Make the most of the season and book a dog-friendly cottage holiday they can be part of.

4. YOU CAN SAVE A LOT OF MONEY
Booking a UK cottage holiday instead of travelling abroad will save you a decent amount of money, as there’s no need to cough up for extra luggage, airport transfers, mobile roaming charges etc. Not having to get on a plane also makes it much easier to get to your destination. Hop in your car, on a train, bus or ferry and you could be on your holidays far quicker, and for half the cost of travelling abroad!

With the kids still in school and summer crowds yet to emerge, why not indulge in a breakfast of wall-to-wall sunshine and sweet silence this spring? Nothing beats some well-earned rest and a bit of peace! What’s more, booking a holiday cottage with a hot tub means you can sink into bubbling bliss in the evening to watch the sunset or gaze at the stars. How tempting does that sound?
