Family Mid-Week Holidays

Some families prefer to enjoy a 3 or 4 night break rather than a week long holiday nowadays, particularly when it comes to exploring the UK and Ireland.  Reasons for taking a mid-week getaway include leisure and pleasure as well as sometimes work-related reasons or to visit family or friends.

Romantic Mid-Week Breaks

Usually romantic couples have more flexibility than families and may find it easier to take a short 3 night or 4 night mid-week break.  Whether for a country holiday or a city break, taking a short break during the week can be ideal for relaxation and recuperating.


Group Holidays

Whether you are planning a reunion with friends or family, looking to celebrate a special occasion or just planning a get together, groups can often save money by holidaying mid-week rather than over weekends when cottage stays tend to be more expensive.  Popular options for groups include large country house rentals, see Largecountryhouses.com for a great selection across the UK and Ireland.


Pet-Friendly Holidays

A popular option when it comes to mid-week breaks is to rent a pet-friendly holiday let.  For most people, their pet dog is a true part of the family and holidaying without them just would not be the same.  Plus not only do you get to bring your pooch along but you also don't have to shell out on kennel fees so renting a pets welcome cottage where your dog can enjoy a holiday too really is a no-brainer.  Read why pets welcome holidays in the UK can be the best.
