Everyone deserves a break from time to time, whether it’s a family holiday away or a relaxing weekend with your partner. Here are a few ideas for UK mini breaks.
Center Parcs are perfect for both family holidays and a relaxing break away with your partner or friend. There are four Center Parcs in the UK: one in Cumbria, one in Nottinghamshire, one in Wiltshire and one in Suffolk.
Center Parcs have a huge range of activities to suit all tastes, and they are located in beautiful spots where you will have your own cabin in the forest. Start your day with a swim, go for a walk around and see some wildlife... you are spoilt for choice. If you want to relax, head to the spa (Aqua Sana) and experience some serious pampering and relaxation.
If you want to do something more active, you'll find hundreds of activities for adults and children alike, including quad biking, paintballing, rally driving, clay pigeon shooting, windsurfing, kayaking and more. Have a look at centerparcs.co.uk for more information.
Another good idea for UK mini breaks is renting a cottage in the secluded countryside. These are also good options whether you are going for a quiet break with your partner or a family break.
There are thousands of rentable cottages around the UK and many of them are stunningly located. It's great to get away from the city and just enjoy each other's company and take in the scenery of the countryside.
Many cottages come well equipped with pool tables, televisions, and - if they are by a lake or river - some even come with the use of a boat. This is the perfect opportunity for leaving the laptop and mobile phone at home and getting away from it all. premiercottages.co.uk and cottageguide.co.uk are two great sites for finding a cottage across the UK.
