Weekend Breaks in the UK

There comes a point in the year when we could all do with some time off, but due to the demands of modern life we are now more inclined to seek a weekend away to recharge the batteries, allowing us to be ready for action again on Monday!

We know just how important it is to be able to take a well deserved mini break that fits in around our weekday commitments - and what about those ‘spur of the moment’ urges to abandon normality for an exciting short break! With that in mind, we have put together a list of cottages that are available for 2, 3 or 4 nights, great for those quick weekend getaways.

When the stress starts to build, or the monotonous drone of work creeps in, Original Cottages are here to help you relax and soak up the scenery whether you should choose Norfolk, Yorkshire or Wales, to mention a few, as your weekend destination! So break away from everyday life and book your hassle-free weekend in some of the most peaceful and inspiring UK locations, and stay in one of our Luxury cottages that we know will cater for more than just your essential needs.

For those chained to a desk all week, we have the perfect remedy lined up to help you shake off that ‘sitting’ feeling; a weekend away in one of our many Active hot spots! If you’re known back home for your love of water sports you should try your hand at riding the North Devonshire surf and all the thrills that come with it! If mountaineering is more your style, challenge yourself to scale the peaks in the Lake District National Park and take a ‘wild swim’ on your may to the summit!

If you feel like spoiling your partner, why not take advantage of our Romantic hideaways ideal for that exceptional weekend break? Come and stroll hand in hand along the south Cornish coast with your dog, or share in the uninterrupted views of the Kent and Sussex countryside. For a little razzmatazz get yourself booked into a slick city apartment and enjoy the bright lights of Brighton or shopping in Norwich.

Spending time with the whole family can often be tricky to organise, especially if your home isn’t quite big enough to fit everyone in. Using Original Cottages’ unique travel search allows you to find the most suitable meeting spot for a weekend family gathering - from large rural farmhouses to smart terraced townhouses, come and take your pick!
