Easter Special Offers on West Country Holiday Cottages

The sense of spontaneity in booking a last minute Easter break in the West Country can make it all the more enjoyable…especially when you sign up for our special offers.

It is less than three weeks until chocolate, Easter egg hunts and traditional family time take over the UK. Take a look at this selection of holiday homes in the West Country that have special offers over Easter and the school holidays.

Take your brood to The Studio, Upottery in East Devon and they can burn off some energy – and some of their haul of chocolate eggs – in the garden. The family can polish their history, too, as this cottage is on the site of the former coach house owned by of 19th century Prime Minister Lord Sidmouth. The cottage sleeps six and you can save 20% over Easter week.

If you fancy an indoor pool, 18th century Lower Cowley Farmhouse (pictured) near the tiny Exmoor village of Parracombe also has a special offer over Easter. Set in 10 acres of grounds and comfortably accommodating 16, there’s plenty of room for family and friends to get together but still find an oasis of peace and calm. An open fire, terrace with moorland views and a grand piano as part of the furniture, this cottage is the perfect setting for an overdue catch up.

For an even bigger collection of family and friends, there is the option of Alston Hall in Battisborough Cross, a three-storey detached country residence in South Hams, which sleeps 38. There is currently an offer of 35% off a five-night stay over Easter. Alston Hall was built as a rectory and was later a country house hotel, and so includes an indoor heated swimming pool (the outdoor pool is open 24 May- 12 September). The house is a mile from the hamlet of Battisborough Cross and the sandy beach at Mothecombe. Professional catering, butler or maid service and clay pigeon shooting are available by arrangement for an extra charge.

Rawridge – another small West Country hamlet – is home to recently renovated Rose Cottage, perfect for a more intimate Easter escape. Attached to the owners’ home and B&B, the holiday home sleeps 2 but has plenty of space to include a small paved outdoor seating area and a shared garden with views across the valley. Save 20% over Easter.
