If you are looking to enjoy all the beautiful beaches, scenic walking trails or fascinating activities and attractions of a family holiday without all the crowds and queues of the summer months, why not take the whole family on a May Half Term holiday?

Get away for a May Half Term break full of fun and adventure that both you and the kids will enjoy, creating valuable memories for the future.

Explore the wilds of Scotland, the magnificent mountain ranges in the Snowdonia National Park, climb the Brecon Beacons or hike through the dramatic Peak District. If water-sports are preferred, try your hand at sailing in the Lake District, learn to surf on the world-renowned beaches in Cornwall, or take a sea kayaking tour along the South Devon Coast.

For little ones, or those who prefer a slower pace when on holiday, there are numerous bustling fishing villages in Norfolk to wander around or there are plenty of beautiful blue flag beaches that are ideal for bathers and building sandcastles in locations like Pembrokeshire. If the weather turns there are plenty of farm parks and zoos scattered across the country, as well as theme parks like Alton Towers in the Peak District.

If a week feels too long, why not take a short break over May Half Term? We have plenty of hand-picked properties in historic and thriving cities like Edinburgh, York or Chester offering plenty of sightseeing opportunities.

Please find a selection of self-catering holiday cottages that are available to rent this May Half Term.
