Treat yourself to a last minute break

One of the benefits of booking a holiday cottage independently is that you get to deal directly with the cottage owner. The person who knows the property better than anyone else, who is in a position to offer the very best price available. Many offer a great level of flexibility all year round, including short breaks from as little as one night with some great discounts for last minute bookings.

The popularity of 'staycations' in the UK is ever increasing and without flights to arrange, the UK offers a 'hassle free' holiday destination that lends itself well to taking a weekend away at short notice. Whether you are looking for pet friendly accommodation for a walking weekend with your dog; seeking a luxury 'bolt-hole' for two for a surprise romantic break; or require a big property for a get together with friends or family, we have a great selection of last minute offers to cater for every occasion.

During the busy summer months, the selection of offers may not be as extensive as the low season, so if you can be flexible and avoid peak times, you will have a far greater choice both in terms of facilities and discounts available. You also get to enjoy the 'magic' of a cosy cottage if it has a roaring fire, and tourist hot spots with fewer crowds during the quieter months.

Two of our most popular areas are Cornwall and Cotswolds last minute cottages, but we have offers all over the UK. Whatever the time of year, there's sure to be a late availability offer just waiting to be booked.

Tips: Find out exactly what is included in the price to ensure the last minute deal is as good as you think it is. If you can be flexible, you may get a better deal on a mid-week break. Popular pubs and restaurants often get booked up over the weekend, so do a little research (or ask the owner for recommendations) and pre-book in advance. Keep packing to a minimum (particularly if you are arriving on public transport!) so find out what facilities are provided in the cottage to save extra baggage (for example hairdryers, cot/high chair, bed linen and towels). It is also worth checking if any extra welcome goodies are provided such as a tea tray or bottle of wine to enjoy when you arrive. If not, take your own with you or find out where the nearest shop is (and check opening times). To get the most enjoyment out of your stay, do some research in advance and put together your 'bucket list' of everything you want
