Group Accommodation Features & Holiday Ideas
    Short Breaks in Large Holiday Houses
A Selection of Our Short Breaks in Big Holiday Houses
Whether you're planning a family celebration or a long party weekend, our short stay accommodation options are ideal for a fun break.

Busy lifestyles and work schedules mean we don't always have the luxury of a full week or a fortnight's holiday when we want it.

With short breaks available in the UK, and mini-breaks abroad, you can still enjoy a relaxing getaway to recharge your batteries. Two or three night away and a change of scene can often do the trick!
  Group Accommodation Short Breaks in Large Holiday Houses
  Whether you fancy a long, lazy weekend at the beach, or an action-packed mini-break, you'll find some great holiday properties available for short stays, from just a couple of nights to a few days or more.

Group Accommodation's list of properties available for short breaks in the UK and Europe is updated regularly, so each time you visit you will see new property rentals featured, often including last minute offers and bargain short breaks.
Choose from a long weekend away in a holiday farmhouse or a short break in a large self-catering cottage in the UK. Alternatively, consider a mini-break in France, Spain, Portugal or the rest of Europe for a group trip abroad

We offer both self-catering and catered short breaks across the UK.

Enjoy a few days in the Cotswolds exploring the area's rolling hills and beautiful villages, or take a short city break in London for some sightseeing. Head north and enjoy a mini-break in the Lake District for some hill walking or watersports, or spend time on the beach and explore fishing villages on a short break in North Yorkshire.

In Wales, you could enjoy a long weekend in Snowdonia in a country house or farm cottage with some friends, or stay at a bunk house in the Brecon Beacons for a group outdoor adventure break. For a group surf holiday head to Pembrokeshire in West Wales for a short break near Newgale, Whitesands or Freshwater West.

Our short break accommodation in France includes gîtes in Normandy and Brittany, both of which are quick and easy to get to from the UK.

In Spain you could rent a short break holiday home near Malaga or enjoy a long weekend in Alicante on the beach, as both destinations are very well-connected to the UK. Alternatively, take a city mini break in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or Seville.

As regional UK airports offer more and more city destinations across Europe, you can also enjoy city mini breaks in Paris, Rome, Marrakech, Vienna and other top European cities, choosing from a selection of large city centre apartments or condos.

And if it's a short break in the sun you're after, why not rent a large villa for a short break in the Algarve in Portugal, or a hire a holiday home in sunny southern Italy for a few days.
