Short Breaks

There are many ways to celebrate those special occasions in life, whether it’s a big birthday, an engagement, a graduation, or an anniversary, but it’s hard to beat a few days away with a bunch of your favourite people at a spacious and luxurious holiday home; you’ll have the freedom to do what you want, and the opportunity to truly unwind and celebrate together.

A short break is also ideal for those team building days away from the work environment, offering a fresh change from the usual hotel-based scenario, and for when you want to impress your key clients with a spot of relaxed corporate hospitality. You’ll find lots to see and do in the local area and there’s huge scope for ice-breaking team building activities.

Sometimes, a short break is a good alternative to a week long holiday, particularly when organising a group of 12 or more people is quite a task – work and other commitments often get in the way, so it can be much easier to arrange a shorter break when everyone is free.

And of course, sometimes you don’t need an excuse; it’s just good to get away for a few days, and even if it’s rather short notice, it’s well worth keeping an eye on our offers and last minute availability; the chances are you’ll find an absolute gem.

Our large group self-catering properties in Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire have well equipped kitchens and the bonus of swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, and cosy BBQ lodges. You can book a 2 or 3 night weekend or a 4 night midweek break, and don’t forget – if there’s anything you need to know, just give us a call on 01823 665500 and we’ll help all we can.
