Family Holidays in the UK


The memories made on family holidays are the ones that last a lifetime. There’s something special about packing everyone into the back of a car and heading to your favourite part of the UK. 


Unfortunately, while we all enjoy the thought of whisking the clan away for a weekend of family fun, we don’t all have the time to plan it. That’s where we come in. Here at Last Minute Cottages, we’re on hand, year-round, just waiting to whisk you and your family away on the trip of a lifetime or a cheap weekend getaway, however soon you want to leave.





Great quality accommodation


Sometimes booking a break at the last-minute or finding somewhere big enough to take the whole family can mean compromising on quality. Well, with Last Minute Cottages, nothing could be further from the truth. We’re determined to make your UK holiday not just one you can enjoy but one you can treasure. 


This means making sure everything is as close to perfect as possible, and just because you haven’t had weeks to plan your weekend break, doesn’t mean we can’t make it happen. After all, we’re home to just about every kind of holiday cottage imaginable. So whatever holiday you’re dreaming up, we’re ready to help it come true.


We’ll know where to send you


Home to hundreds of diverse holiday spots, whatever type of holiday you’re after, you’ll find it hidden somewhere on the UK’s gorgeous shores.


If you’re after letting the little ones make sandcastles on a sun-soaked shore, make for the UK’s own tropical getaway, and the beautiful Cornish coast. For a wide range of award-winning restaurants, a city break in Cardiff. Or for fresh air, wonderful walking routes, and family-friendly fun at Beatrix Potter World, you can’t beat a bargain break in the Lake District. Whatever you’re looking for, Old Blighty can provide.
