Make school holidays extra special and treat the whole family to a half-term getaway. Shake off the winter blues in February, soak up the spring sunshine in May or book a late break in October.

With hundreds of holiday cottages, campsites, bothies and bunkhouses across England, Northern Ireland and Wales, we’re sure to have the perfect place for your half-term holiday.

What makes our holidays so special?

Every one of our self-catering holiday cottages, campsites and bunkhouses has been handpicked for their stunning locations, fascinating history and unique features. From former fishermen's cottages just off the beach, detached farmhouses with space for all the family (and the dog), to woodland cabins and lakeside campsites, we have something for everyone.

Plus, every time you stay with us, you help us to look after the place you’re staying in and contribute to the restoration of other special places too.
