Walking Short Breaks

Cottages in Snowdonia in Wales and England’s Lake District are widely popular, while Scotland’s glens, lochs and mountains are known for their majestic beauty. With fresh air, big skies, open space and wildlife, nothing beats the freedom of wandering across a natural landscape. Whether alone or with friends and family, Walking Short Break accommodation remains a clear winner. Be it farmland, coastline, mountains or woodland, search our Walking Short Breaks self-catering lets and find the ideal holiday location for you.

A converted chapel in Cumbria, a traditional stone cottage in Conwy, North Wales and a large family house in the Cairngorms, Scotland are among our Walking Short Breaks favourites.
