Summer Holiday Breaks

The school summer holidays are just around the corner and with the promise of some nice weather to come let’s start thinking ‘Summer Holiday’! We have self catering wrapped up at Group Stays so why not have a little look at these gorgeous holiday houses and see if you can get a last minute Summer Holiday in July, August or September.

With properties sleeping 2 to 50 our Group Stays portfolio has something for everyone. So sit back and have a little look at some of our family friendly properties that would be perfect for a proper Summer Holiday.

Kippy’s Cottage – Devon

Take your bucket and spade and a crabbing line (if you don’t have one don’t panic as the lovely little shops in town will have lots) and make the most of being a few minutes away from the gorgeous Breakwater Beach. Build a sandcastle, take a dip in the sea and a stroll along the busy harbour or simply sit in your own terraced garden and people watch. The choice is yours. Sleeping 7 people Kippys Cottage even has it’s own parking space which is amazing for a harbour side property.

Broomhill Manor - Cornwall

Pretty Cottages, delightful grounds and the most hospitable owners Broomhill Manor caters perfectly for families. The outdoor pool is a suntrap and the kids will love the safe grounds in which to run and roar. Situated in Bude you are perfectly located for days by the sea. Why not join a surf school for a morning and learn a new skill? Mums and dads can then come back to a luxurious property some of which have large hot tubs. BBQ’s come as standard, fun comes as standard the only thing we can’t guarantee is it being boiling hot the whole time. We can keep our fingers crossed though!

Pebblebed House – Topsham

Trendy Topsham with it’s range of resturants and shops appeals to a wide range of families. If you are into boating or sailing then you could wish for nothing more than a view of the Exe Estuary at it’s very best. This stylish property sleeps up to 9 people. The City of Exeter is a short train or bus ride away and the lovely beach of Exmouth can be reached via train from Topsham Station too. Take the bikes and you will find great cycle routes taking you along the river Exe so why not stop at a few waterside pubs for a drink and something to eat whilst you are out exploring?

Picture perfect Sycamore Cottage is situated in a complex that really doesn’t feel like one. Forget cramped chalets and shower blocks thing open spaces, unique cottages with space between them and luxurious indoor pools, play areas and onsite spa treatments!
