Offering the opportunity for you to get away to some of the nicest settings in Britain complete with homely interiors and plenty of space, short breaks don't get any better than cottage breaks.

All of the above holiday cottages accept short breaks, starting at a two nights stay. So, whatever you're after -from a luxury stay on the south coast to a rural retreat in the Scottish Highlands-your mini break in the UK doesn't have to be spent in a gloomy budget hotel. Make it the trip of your dreams with a Sykes holiday cottage.

A short break you'll remember for a lifetime

A cottage is the perfect setting for any short trip. It could be a weekend away with your family, a 3-night holiday with your partner, or a 4-night break with your best friends-it doesn't matter. Whether you want to make the most of the British summer or spend it in sunnier climes, our cottage breaks and lodges are excellent places to stay all year round.

If you're looking for something later on in the year, we have choice cottages that are perfect for a mini break in autumn or a winter short break. They combine cosy interiors with gorgeous surroundings that are ideal for wandering, whether the ground is decorated with leaves, morning sun, or snow. Booking a cottage with a hot tub or a roaring fireplace is optional, but we highly recommended it.

Whenever you time it-from long weekends away to a mid-week retreat-and wherever you want to go-be it Wales, Scotland, England or Ireland - we have the short break that's right for you. If you want something different to the usual city break hotel, why not stay in a nearby cottage that's tucked away from the bustle and bright lights? Or, for something a little more relaxed, perhaps a weekend break in the Lake District?

Short on time, but not on quality

Our handpicked short stay cottages are chosen to help you get away from it all, even if it's only for a little while. Want to talk something through before booking? We're always happy to help; just call one of our advisors on 01244356666 or let us phone you.

If you are looking to book your short break within the next 7 days, take a look at our last minute deals and save up to 35% on the regular price.
