May Half Term Holiday Cottages in Northumberland and Cumbria

Relax and enjoy the warmer weather this half term with a break away in a self-catering Northumberland holiday cottage. Last minute bookings are available at many of our fantastic properties, with some offering last minute discounts off the total booking price. Whether there are just two of you, or you are looking for somewhere to hold a big group gathering of family or friends, we have something for everyone. The majority of our cottages are dog friendly, so none of the family needs to be left behind.

Heading into summer, the sunshine enhances the scenery and the landscape, and there is also plenty of family friendly activities taking place throughout the region. From the selection of castles open to visitors, halls and gardens, and interactive museums, to The Alnwick Garden with their Adventure Golf, Heatherslaw Light Rail with their steam train journeys, and Whitehouse Farm with their petting zoo.

Many of our properties are equipped with books and board games for those quieter days or evenings spent in the accommodation.
