Spring & Easter Breaks in the UK
The Elm Tree,Spilsby, Lincolnshire
Head to lovely Lincolnshire and stay with Jonathan and Chris (who you can read more about on our blog here) at their lovingly restored B&B. The rooms are light and modern and the breakfasts fantastic. They also have a reputation for a fabulous cream tea – best sampled after a long walk nearby.
Great day out: Horncastle is nearby and perfect for a day’s mooching around antique shops.
The Old Rectory Hotel, Exmoor, Devon
This award-winning, beautiful Georgian rectory is surrounded by the most dramatic of landscapes. Combined with fine dining and the pleasure of luxurious boutique hotel living, this is the perfect destination to escape to, with or without your walking boots.
Great day out: Head across to Ilfracombe for a stroll around the harbour, or take a cruise to magical Lundy Island.
St Valery, Alnmouth, Northumberland
Stay with Harvey at his delightfully stylish B&B in the artsy and beautiful town of Alnmouth. The beach here is just two minutes walk away and is truly wonderful; wild and windswept it’s just lovely. Head back to town for great pubs and places to eat.
Great day out: Cycling the Coast and castles route is a wonderful way to explore this area.
Old Pear Tree Barn, Cornwall (sleeps 4)
Handy for arriving by train if you don’t fancy taking the car, with Newquay and Torquay both close by, Old Pear Tree Barn has some fantastic walks straight from the front door. There’s also a lovely thatched pub just down the road meaning when you can’t face cooking (in the fabulous kitchen) you can easily pop out for supper. April dates carrying a discount.
Great day out: A short distance away is the breathtaking St Agnes Heritage Coastline for stunning scenery and great walks.
Brynarth Country Guest House, Aberystwyth, Wales
Brynarth, a combination of cottages and dairy barn, has been beautifully restored with spacious rooms and luxurious bathrooms. Breakfasts are locally sourced, there’s a log fire to curl up next to and this little piece of heaven is surrounded by eight acres of countryside and peaceful woodland. Bliss.
Great day out: Ancient university town, Aberystwyth is only 20 minutes away.
Sea Sunset Cottage, Whitstable, Kent (sleeps 6)
Literally on the beach at Whitstable, this modern house is designed to make the most of its views and particularly the AMAZING sunsets. With short breaks available (other than July and August) it’s a great weekend escape or head during the week when the town is quieter. A train ride from London, but you’ve also a designated parking space – very handy in this super popular Kent town.
Great day out: Honestly, Whitstable has so much to explore and the balcony here so enticing that you might not fancy going far.
Rocking Stone Cottage, Derbyshire (sleeps 4)
This beautifully converted 18th-century barn is the perfect bolthole for two, but it sleeps up to four. Its stone walls, gorgeous decor and amazing location might mean you don’t stray far, but if you do then the area has some great day trips.
Great day out: A visit to amazing Chatsworth House.
The Old Rectory, Hastings, East Sussex

Great day out: For this one we’re suggesting you stay in and make use of the treatment rooms on site.

In a stunning setting with views across the Wye Valley, these five private B&B units offer contemporary style within a short drive of the quirky town of Hay-On-Wye.

The Loft, Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire (sleeps 2)
In the heart of the Cotswolds, this is a true escape for two. Tucked away in the eaves right in the centre of lovely Stow, you feel totally cocooned, but there’s loads on your doorstep. The town has great shops and restaurants and when you’re ready head further the area is full of man made and natural beauties.
