Activity Holidays

An Activity Short Break will refresh you, thrill you and release you from routine. Why not try something new or share a passion with friends and family? Mountain biking in the wilds of Scotland, surfing on the Atlantic Coast or hiking across beautiful moors are among the wide range of options for a self-catering holiday break.

Many Shortbreaks properties feature swimming pools, tennis courts, horse riding or the use of a gym, so you can stay just as active without leaving your base. Accommodation in Devon is a frequent popular choice, offering water sports on the coast and hiking on nearby Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Begin the pleasure and excitement of an Activity Short Break here.
