Cheap Weekend Breaks in the UK


Sometimes, we all just need to get away. Unfortunately, there are two things determined to stand in the way of your next holiday: finding the time and finding the money. Luckily, here at Last Minute Cottages, we’re here to help. Just because a pricey, month-long excursion isn’t on the cards, doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to a slice of much-needed me-time.


We’re home to hundreds of top-quality, cheap weekend breaks, meaning you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life without worrying about the price tag, and still be back in time for work on Monday. And, as is always the case with our last-minute holiday homes, we’re here to help, however soon you want to leave.


We’ll know where to send you


The amount you’re spending on your next weekend break isn’t the only important thing. It’s also worth wondering where you’re going. At Last Minute Cottages, we have holiday homes across the UK, with somewhere to stay in every nook and cranny inside our shores.


Best of all, we know the UK like the back of our hand. So, whatever sort of setting you’re after, we’ll know where to send you. If you’re craving gorgeous views and award-winning beauty, not many can compare to the Lake District. If it’s sun, sea and sand you’re after, we suggest the UK’s tropical paradise, and the stunning shores of Cornwall. However wild your holiday dreams may be, let us know. After all, we’re here to help them happen.


Looking for something to do?


When going on a short break, you won’t want to waste a moment finding things to do. Luckily, we’re on hand with loads of tried and tested suggestions, to help turn your short break from fine to fantastic.


For starters, when the sun is shining, almost nothing beats stretching out on a golden shore. If coastline fun sounds like your sort of thing, check out our list of the best beaches in the UK. Or if it’s a little chilly out, head for one of the 20 best cosy pubs to find a quaint inn to have a drink in. 


If you fancy making unique memories, why not try something different, with the best kitesurfing spots in the UK? Or, for some slightly more laid back fun, check out the best summer walks in the UK for when it’s warm or try one of the best winter walks in the UK when the colder months roll around.
