With two long weekends coming up in May, there is no better excuse to book a weekend away! Bank Holidays are a fantastic time to take a break, without having to take too much time off work plus with summer weather on the way, taking a trip to a holiday cottage is a lovely way to spend the long weekend.
Choosing to holiday in the UK over the May Bank Holiday means that you can really make the most of the long weekend without having to waste your precious time off travelling to your destination or stuck in airports. When you book a holiday cottage in the UK you can be at your holiday home in no time, leaving more time for you to enjoy your May Bank Holiday weekend with your nearest and dearest.
Don’t spend your May Bank Holiday weekend painting, spring cleaning or slaving away doing DIY projects around the home; British Bank Holidays are there to be enjoyed! Traditionally, May Day is celebrated in towns and villages with fetes, fairs and festivals to mark the day all over the country, including events taking place in Padstow, Oxford and Hastings. In the capital city, many special events are taking place including a May Day procession from the London Docklands Museum on Monday 6th May.
Whether you want to take part in traditional May Day activities, like dancing round the Maypole and Morris dancing, or simply want to enjoy the extra time off work, with country walks, fresh air and the company of friends and family, renting a holiday cottage is a superb option. Plus with three night breaks over the Early May Bank Holiday weekend starting from £121, we are sure to have a holiday cottage to suit all tastes, budgets and holiday itineraries!
