Dream holiday cottages for Easter

Caroline Cassidy

After the long, cold winter months, spring brings with it an air of fresh new beginnings and the promise of warmer weather. By Easter (Sunday 24th April), many of us will have had our fill of work, winter and bad weather so why not think about a weekend break away.

The beautiful and varied British countryside means whatever you are looking for in a getaway, you'll find it within these very shores.

If peace and quiet is what you crave, why not take in the rolling green hills of Dorset - with an enviable coastline, thatched cottages round every corner and expansive local landscape, visitors will be enchanted by Thomas Hardy country. The ideal place to collect your thoughts and absorb the romance of it all.

For outstanding views, Scotland is hard to beat. Imagine a cottage, close enough to Edinburgh for a night at the theatre after a day of walking, fishing or mountain biking amidst the stunning surroundings of the Scottish Borders.

With a family to cater for, activities could be the key to an excellent Easter. A trip to the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales offers the chance to stroll peacefully along sandy shores, while the children can be occupied with go-karting, horse riding or even quad-biking. Throw in an Easter Egg Hunt and you've got a break for all the family.

And let's not forget that other very important member of the family - the dog. How about a cosy cottage in the glorious setting of the Darwin Forest Country Park? Stepping out into stunning woodland, it's the perfect place from which to explore the wonders of the Peak District... and Fido will be in his element!

If the weather isn't kind, however, you may prefer to savour the delights of the Emerald Isle - enjoy a pint of the black stuff or take in the breathtaking scenery surrounding the lakes of Killarney before snuggling up in front of a roaring open fire in your very own traditional cottage.

Go on, take a break... you deserve it.
