With Easter and the rather unseasonal weather behind us now thoughts turn to the forthcoming Bank Holidays in May. If you are looking for last minute weekend cottages for the May Bank Holiday you will be pleased to know that many of the cottage agencies have plenty of availability, though there are few great deals out there to tempt bookers for the early May break.

Hoseasons have a small selection of cottages with 20% off, offering a saving of between £50 and £66 for a three night break from the 3rd May.

Misty Isles Cottage lies on the west coast of Scotland, about 16 miles south of Oban and boasts panoramic sea views as well as a private hot tub. This pet-friendly cottage for two has good feedback from previous visitors and has been reduced from £331 to £265 for three nights, a saving of £66.

Hoseasons’ other best offers are all in North Norfolk. Holly Berry (sleeps four), between Fakenham and the coast, has access to a shared tennis court as well an outdoor play area and is now £236 down from £295 for the 3 nights.

Manor Mews is an attractive cluster of cottages in one of North Norfolk’s prettiest villages just 12 miles from Wells Next The Sea.
