We all have a limited number of days off for holidays and by making the most of long weekend breaks and just taking a day off either side of a Saturday and Sunday, we can make our holidays stretch further. Self-catering cottages, apartments and lodges can be booked for short breaks of three days upwards (larger properties may be able to be rented for one or two nights only). These are scattered about England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Unless you don't mind flying, most people book short breaks and weekend breaks within a four hour drive of their home town otherwise the journey detracts from the holiday.
