With Spring and Easter just around the corner it finally feels like the time to book our first UK holiday of the year, but what should be do?
As we want to save a lot of holiday fund for the summer, we are planning to head away in a holiday lodge or log cabin. Perfect for families of all ages and sizes, a lodge offers comfortable accommodation with the countryside right outside your window/door.
What’s more our dog loves it too, being able to wander in and out as they want, a joy after the winter months of being locked down to keep the cold out!
While we quite like getting away from it all in a lodge deep in countryside, we also quite like heading to established holiday parks with lodges as many of them run kids activities throughout the Easter holidays whatever the weather…. perfect!
The good news is that there are some great deals around for this Easter and we have found a whole selection with prices starting from less than £200. Search for Easter lodges »

The first term of school is really flying by and half term is almost here, so have you got something planned to keep the family entertained during the week off?
The Autumn half term is always a difficult one to predict the weather, changeable is most likely this late in October, so planning your half-term break with indoor and outdoor activities is a must.
We like to stay in family holiday lodges over the Autumn half term because it provides so many great solutions:
- Whether situated on the coast or the countryside, a lodge is perfect for getting out and about quickly when the weather is clear and dry. So you can quickly get out and about exploring and burning off some of that excess energy.
- Of course, coming back to a lodge caked in mud or wet-through is always a bit easier…. mop-able floors and not your carpet!
- Many lodges are on holiday parks which tend to run activities during the half term break – so you can get some time without the kids asking what’s next.
- Of course lodges have some great facilities such as swimming pools and adventure playgrounds, so whatever the weather you can keep them entertained.
We think a holiday lodge is hard to beat for a half term holiday break and don’t worry, it’s not too late to book one for October/November. There is still last-minute availability at some great prices. Take a look at some half term holiday lodges. For checking out last-minute availability you can also call 0844 847 1143.
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!).
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
