Are there any under £100?

Some of the short weekends we’ve looked at today and others elsewhere can be found for around £100 but these are sometimes very hard to find. If you raise your budget just a little bit plenty more avenues are opened. And the facilities, amenities and locations will be that much better. In addition, some locations and retreats won’t have any lodges that come at that price range so you are also limiting the locations you can visit in the UK. We hope you have found some of these short break deals worthwhile and you find your dream weekend away in England.

We have gone through the effort of putting together for you a special offers page with the best weekend deals from Sykes, Hoseasons and Cottages.com so that you don’t have to look far to get a great deal..
