Impulse escapes

Car keys, travel bag, a quick booking and you're all set to head to golden sands or deep woodland: a last-minute cottage break is so much better than a weekend in the city, right?

There's nothing quite like slinging a few items in a weekend bag then running to the train station to adopt a new hometown. We all need to escape the rat race – especially for a last minute holiday. Impulse escapes are the very watchword in hedonism, leaving us free of all responsibilities; that dash of much-needed spontaneity is often all that's needed to recharge the batteries. Here at Unique Homestays, we've sourced luxury homes in the wilds of rural England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales to offer country cottages that will have you striding out on long walks in no time, tucking into a fireside pub supper at the end of the route, or plunging into a hot tub with a cool sea breeze washing over your cheeks. These one-of-a-kind homes are available for a 3-night stay within the next fortnight, so take advantage of a rare free weekend; throw caution to the wind and book one of our last minute luxury holiday cottages, lodges, or coastal castaways, where you can be free to indulge in some serious down time. Out of office, officially on.
