Short Breaks for relaxation

Luxury Cottages for Short Breaks

We have a wide selection of luxury cottages and lodges that offer short breaks and many that specialise in weekend breaks all year round. Perhaps  you can't take the whole week off but could just do with a short mid-week or weekend break then these are the cottages for you. Most of our self catering cottages will want a minimum three night booking but some will accept just two nights depending on the time of year. Book your next luxury short break cottage here at Handpicked Cottages and take some time out and recharge the batteries.
