With so much variety you are sure to find the perfect last-minute summer holidays for your requirements with us. Choose from countryside retreats, beachside destinations, city-based cultural hot spots, and much more.

seaside destination

Roll back the years and enjoy a traditional British seaside holiday when you stay at our Talacre Beach Resort in North Wales. There is nothing traditional about the 5 star facilities and accommodation which is available on park, which includes a tropically heated indoor swimming pool, steam room and sauna.

The seaside theme runs through our resort, which even has its own fish and chip shop. Alternatively, there is an on-site restaurant available which offers both British and international classics if you want a bit more variety, and all the holiday lodges and static caravans which are available for hire at their resort are also equipped with their own self catering facilities.

Talacre Beach is very much a family-friendly resort, with this reflected in the activities and entertainment which is on offer throughout the summer. This includes a jam-packed evening entertainment schedule in our club house as well as children’s entertainment overseen by our mascot Charlie Bear. During the day, there is a wide-ranging Go Active programme available offering archery, fencing, body zorbing, sea scooters and much more.


activity breaks

Get outdoors and enjoy a wide range of activities at either Piran Meadows Resort & Spa in Cornwall or the renowned Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa in Somerset. Both destinations are 5 star and have a wide range of family friendly facilities available including in a bowling alley, pool tables, swimming pool and much more.

Both parks also offer the same Go Active programme as what is offered at Talacre Beach with fun activities available for all ages and interests. Be sure to keep an eye on the activity schedule when you arrive on park to see if there is something which interests you during your stay.

Cheddar Woods is located just down the road from Cheddar Gorge which is a must see sight during your stay. This is just one of the many eclectic range of visitor attractions on offer in this region which also includes the seaside destination of Weston Super Mare.

Piran Meadows meanwhile is situated in the middle of the stunning Cornwall countryside but offers easy access to a number of seaside destinations including glorious Newquay beach where you can built sandcastles or even try your hand at surfing.


romantic locations

If you want a seaside destination but would prefer something a little more romantic, then you may want to consider Beach Cove Coastal Retreat – a five star destination with quirky beach hut accommodation and luxurious holiday lodges which are available to rent.

It has quickly developed a reputation for being the romance capital of the UK having been the setting for various marriage proposals, honeymoons and mini-moons. This is reflected in the accommodation, all of which are beautifully decorated and equipped with all of the luxuries you will need on your break away from home. Many of our beach huts and apartments have their own hot tubs so you can sit back and admire the stunning coastal views.

countryside escapes

Escape to the Lake District this summer at Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat and gain access to our stunning new facilities which includes an impressive panoramic sauna so you can sit back and admire the countryside in this wonderful part of the UK. We also have a Jacuzzi pool available as well as the Ammara Spa where you can take advantage of a range of therapies designed to ease any aches and pains you may accumulate as you explore the surrounding area.

Also available in Cumbria is Thanet Well Lodge Retreat which is designed to be a tranquil escape where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The facilities and therefore purposefully limited here, with the resort designed to simply take full advantage of the surrounding views and countryside which have to be seen to be believed. Our lodges are positioned perfectly to take advantage of this and many of the premier lodges even feature their own private hot tub facilities so you can sit back and take all of this in.
