Summer Breaks

Summer Breaks UK

Nothing quite compares to the feeling of kicking off the flip-flops and digging your toes in the powder-soft sand for the first time on your summer break in the UK. Or the warmth of sunshine on your face; the smell of salt and vinegar on freshly fried fish & chips or the taste of indulgent ice cream after a swim in the shimmering sea.

UK summer holidays in Great Britain are full of incredible experiences that evoke the senses, and there’s nowhere else we’d rather staycation! Ditch the airport queues and pack up the car with as much as you can carry - bikes, BBQ’s, picnic baskets and even the family pet as you head off on a new (and easily accessible) adventure. Summer holidays in the UK tend to start mid-July and continue through to early-September, so it’s worth booking your summer break as early as possible at the beginning of the year!

Not only do we provide incredible holiday homes that are unique, contemporary and ideal for families, our teams are firmly in the heart of the local communities and are the first to know about the best rural events, activities and eateries for you to enjoy. From the best selfie-spots amongst spectacular landscapes to our favourite hidden places to bask in the sunshine with a well-stuffed hamper, we know what really makes a summer break in the UK.
