Last minute breaks across the United Kingdom


You don’t have to spend hours meticulously planning the perfect holiday to have a fantastic time. Forget detailed itineraries and longingly counting down the months until your next getaway. Book a last-minute break and you could be soaking up the sights of a new destination within the next few days.


By booking last-minute, you’ll also be able to grab a great deal on your holiday cottage. So, whether you’d prefer to travel to the coast for a sunny seaside escape or perhaps retreat to the countryside, what are you waiting for? We’re here to make your last-minute holiday ideas a reality.



Your cottage is just a few clicks away


Booking a last-minute holiday doesn’t mean you’ll be left with limited choices. With us, you can browse through thousands of last-minute cottages at prices that can’t be beaten. We understand the importance of finding the ideal home that not only looks great but also suits your lifestyle.


For a last-minute family getaway, a spacious home with an enclosed garden and cosy living space is ideal for both rest and play. Or, if it’s just the two of you, a snug cabin complete with a hot tub and toasty log burner is the perfect option for a romantic weekend away. Can’t bear to leave your beloved pooch behind? Let them join in the fun at one of our many dog-friendly cottages.

Discover the versatility of Britain


You also won’t be left with a small selection of locations. With thousands of cottages across the whole of the UK, the choice is all yours. With rolling hills, idyllic coasts, rugged mountains and bustling cities all on one island, we’re spoilt for choice here in Britain.

If you prefer the calming sights and sounds of rolling waves, a seaside break in St. Ives or Devon might just be what you need to find your inner zen. Missing the hustle and bustle of the city? London and Edinburgh are awaiting your arrival for a scenic city break. If you thrive off adventure, head over to the Isle of Skye or Snowdonia for an exploration of the UK’s wildest landscapes.


Keep yourself entertained while away


You might not have much time to plan what you’re going to do once you arrive at your holiday cottage. Fear not - we’re here to help you put together some last-minute plans to keep you entertained while you’re away.


If you’ll be staying along the coast, make sure to check out the best beaches in the UK - you’ll be strolling along sandy shores in no time at all! Adrenaline junkies might be interested in the best kitesurfing spots in the UK, while keen explorers may want to explore the ten best caves.


If you’re visiting in the summertime, why not see if any of the best summer festivals in the UK are nearby to your cottage? Or, if you’ll be enjoying a winter holiday, check out these great winter walks, before heading back to your warm, cosy cottage.
