Take a break

We all have those times when we really need a holiday. Maybe work is getting too much, or maybe you just need a change of scenery – but you haven't got a week off for months. Well, don't despair! Take yourself away for a short break or weekend treat.

The joys of that weekend getaway

You don't have to go far

If you decide a short break is for you, you don't have to disappear to the otherside of the country. After all, you're only going away for a few days, and you don't want to spend your entire holiday in the car. Going to a nice little cottage just a few miles down the road could give you the break you need to recharge the old batteries.

There are many good reasons to choose a short break, rather than a longer holiday: short breaks are typically 3 or 4 nights. With 3 night breaks starting on a Friday, and 4 night breaks starting on a Monday, you can nip off on a weekend short break after work on a Friday, and be back again to start again on Monday morning.

Give the kids a treat too

If you've got children who'd appreciate a weekend treat, you could always book your short break at a family holiday park. There are hundreds of family parks all over the UK, so you're bound to find a holiday park you like, which is also close by.

Family holiday parks have everything the nippers need to keep them entertained throughout the holiday; and if the children are off having a good time, you'll have a good time too! A holiday park holiday makes a perfect short break get away. You can take the kids away for a few days, and they won't even have to miss any school.

Find something for you

Fancy a short break getaway? Have a look at the holiday cottages which are available around the UK for a peaceful break. Or give the kids a treat, and have a look around family holiday parks which you can find available in all corners of the country.
