Easter is a time for renewal. New blooms, new lambs, new life, new hope. It’s also a time for going on holiday. While Easter is a special time for a multitude of reasons, let’s not forget about the biggest perk of the season: a week or more in which to take a break before emerging rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again. This Easter, recharge your batteries and renew your lust for life by holidaying in a quaint British cottage.
HomeAway.co.uk have holiday cottages the length and breadth of the British Isles - stone ones, thatched ones, log-fired ones and remote ones. Pick a part of the country you’ve never been to - or alternatively, choose a region you know and love. Then book yourself an Easter holiday cottage that ticks all the right boxes.

Scotland is a great place for an Easter break. It'll still be chilly, but pack some extra layers and you’ll scarcely notice the cold.
