Enjoy a wonderful break or holiday in South Devon at this charming character cottage in Kingswear.
The delightful Milber Cottage is a 4* Gold rated cottage with 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6. It’s perfectly placed to reach the beaches and attractions of the English Riviera or you can simply stay in and enjoy the spectacular views over the river to Dartmouth from the tiered patio.
Dating back to the early 1700s, the cottage was formerly a rest house for weary travellers awaiting the ferry across to Dartmouth.
If you have not explored the South Devon areas before, the South West Coastal Path winds round the rugged coast from Torbay, down the steep streets of Kingswear, across the ferry and through the heart of Dartmouth into the picturesque countryside and impressive coastline of the South Hams.
These elegant yachting towns, situated on either side of the River Dart, provide the perfect base for exploring on land or on water, with the open sea a short sail up the estuary and the tranquil charms of the River Dart in the other direction.
The streets of Dartmouth are busy throughout the year with tourists and locals enjoying café society and excellent shopping. Quiet Kingswear provides the perfect base for those seeking peace and quiet with the convenience of Dartmouth only five minutes across the water.
School half term may just be over but it’s not long now until the Easter Break and so if you are planning a cottage get-away you need to finalise your booking now.
Easter falls early this year, at the end of March, and so it’s already barely a month away. And, with 2 Bank Holidays in England it’s a great time to take an extended break with the family – especially as the weather should be entering the warmer and brighter spring!
If you haven’t got anything planned for the Easter break, there is still time, but you need to get a move on to have the best choice. We have put together a selection of super family cottages and apartments for the Easter holidays. These include houses with gardens for the perfect Easter egg hunt to pet friendly self catering so that you don’t have to leave your dog behind.
You can also choose from great locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland including holiday favourites such as the Cotswolds, New Forest, Pembrokeshire, Norfolk Broads, West Country, Peak District, Northumberland Coast, Snowdonia and the Cairngorms… to name just a few!
As the weather at Easter is a little less predictable, holiday lodges, log cabins and mobile homes offer some good quality family accommodation often with plenty of entertainment on site (which is handy on those wet days!).
Priory House is the only way to spend your holiday in the South West with family and friends.
It’s impeccably furnished and decorated offering a superb luxury holiday in the South West. It’s also very well equipped even with plenty to keep you entertained such as table football, DVD player and Broadband for those nights you wish to stay in.
The property is set within 3.5 acres of unspoilt countryside giving its guests seclusion and privacy yet still only two miles from the market town of Barnstaple.

What to do with the kids during the winter half term can be a challenge. We all know the weather can be unpredictable, at best, so the February school half term at home can feel like a lot of time locked in at home with children with far too much unused energy… does that sound familiar?
If it does, then why not consider taking a short break in a holiday lodge this February half term? It really is a perfect family solution.
Activity Parks to Swimming Pools and Family Fun
Lots of lodges can be found on popular holiday parks across the UK. During the School half term many of these parks will run kids entertainment programmes for everything from exploring in the great outdoors to indoor art and creativity sessions. In fact there will be lots to keep children of all ages entertained so that Mum and Dad can enjoy the break to, whatever the weather.
Many of the holiday parks with lodges also have swimming pools, table tennis tables, amusements and other facilities such as indoor play areas. So there are lots of things to do to wear even the most active children out during a fun packed day.
Accommodation for Families and Pets
Lodge accommodation is perfect for families providing comfortable and affordable self catering. Cosy even in February, lodges are available for families of all sizes and that includes your pet dog too!
Great Prices, Superb Value
Holiday lodges are excellently priced family self catering all year round, but they offer even better value in the winter half term where prices are much lower than in the summer. In addition you can find some great deals and discounts on holiday lodges across the UK which can save you even more. Take a look at some February half term lodge deals
