Last-minute luxury breaks in the UK

Stuff a suitcase with knitwear and nibbles: now is the time for throwing caution to the wind. Why have a humdrum weekend at home when there's last-minute luxury breaks in the UK up for grabs?

There's nothing quite like slinging some bits in a weekend bag, dashing to the train, and making yourself at home in a one-of-a-kind retreat to add a little impulse into life. We all need to escape the rat race from time to time, and our last-minute luxury breaks in the UK are just the ticket for seekers of spur-of-the-moment escapes. If spontaneity's missing from your schedule, these blink-and-you-miss-it medley of homes with eleventh hour availability are just what the wayfarer ordered. We're sure the dog-friendly spots will send tails wagging, too!

These luxurious homes in the bustling villages and rural wilds of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland will have you striding out on long walks, tucking into fireside suppers, and plunging into hot tubs in no time. All available for at least three nights within the next fortnight, we encourage you to take advantage of a rare free weekend, throw caution to the wind, and book a last-minute luxury break; whether you choose a coastal retreat or wilderness escape, where you choose to indulge in some serious down time is up to you.
