Stress-free self catering breaks for half term
12 September 2009
Whatever the weather at Half Term, the Lake District is a great family getaway with a host of outdoor activities for fine weather and top-notch indoor attractions for rainy days.
Four-star Broom Cottage is ideally located half way between popular Lake Windermere and the market town of Kendal, with the World of Beatrix Potter and the Museum of Lakeland Life just two under-cover options near at hand.
It is one of a small cluster of former agricultural buildings set in peaceful farmland. The beamed ceilings and wooden floors add character while the leather sofas and other modern furnishings are practical as well as stylish. The cottage sleeps four and a week’s rental starting 24 October is £570 – or £585 if you bring the family dog.
This is just one of over 900 hand-picked cottages from specialist Cumbrian Cottages, cumbrian-cottages.co.uk
Alternatively, head for Wales, where walks along the dramatic coastline of Pembrokeshire’s Strumble Head peninsula can be enjoyed on a break at Treseisslyt Hafod, a superb barn conversion (sleeping eight), just half-a-mile along a track from Aberbach bay and the Coastal Path.
And for October half-term week, starting 24 October, there’s a special offer on the property with a new price of £564 (saving £62).
Also among the properties available for this popular holiday week from Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire is 1 Brynawel (sleeps four), a Victorian house in the village of Dinas Cross and also within walking distance of Aberbach Bay. A week’s rental is now £348, a saving of £38. coastalcottages.co.uk
