Hayloft Cottage, Cumbria
This peaceful cottage is located on a family-run farm in the Cumbrian countryside. Hayloft Cottage has been carefully created from an old farm building, retaining its character; the upside down style of the accommodation takes full advantage of the lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The property enjoys shared use of all the lawned and terraced areas on the farm which includes a fantastic children’s play area. The real pull for families is that the owners offer guided tours around the farm and are full of fascinating stories about what it’s like to be a farmer in the countryside.
The Dovecote, North Wales
The Dovecote is a pretty first floor apartment in the charming harbour village of Abersoch. Set in a Grade II listed house surrounded by -tropical Italianate gardens, this spacious holiday home also offers panoramic sea views. Abersoch’s harbour, shops and restaurants are just a short stroll away and the property benefits from private access to the beach- it may not be sunbathing weather but beaches in autumn are beautiful places to walk and play family games of football. Other brilliant half term activities nearby include the The Children’s Farm Park, Criccieth Castle and Llanfair Slate Caverns.
44 Lower Lake, Sussex
For a historical half term holiday, why not pay a visit to 44 Lower Lake. This traditional, Grade II listed 17 century cottage is located in the medieval town of Battle, where the Battle of Hastings took place.
