Dream Destination: Easter getaways

When I came back from holiday a week ago I descended into the worst post-holiday blues I have ever exerienced, for no particular reason. Thankfully the prospect of another holiday isn’t too far away and I’m keeping busy planning our trip to South Africa, but if we hadn’t been, I’d have been snatching the 4 day weekend over Easter and making a break for the seaside.

I thought it would be fun to round up some of the most amazing stays I’ve spotted around the UK that still have availability for Easter in case any of you were planning a break and looking for inspiration. All have been chosen for their spectacular settings and stylish interiors. If not… when it comes to bank holidays, there’s always May!

1. Merlin Farm Eco Cottages, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall – iescape.com
Sleeping 2-4, these cottages look stylish and are situated on my favourite beach in Cornwall, Mawgan Porth (where The Scarlet is.) I think this would be perfect for friends – at £200pn you could splash out on dinner in any of the nearby fabulous restaurants in Padstow or at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, just down the road.

2. Kaywana Hall B&B, nr Dartmouth, Devon – iescape.com
If you love modern architecture this B&B bucks the trend for chintzy B&B’s in Devon. Based on the original building by renowned 1960’s architect Mervyn Seal, it’s a blast of fresh design amongst estuary air and modern style, only a 10 minute walk into Dartmouth. (£150pn)

3. Coillaibus, Islay, Inner Hebrides, Scotland – iescape.com
These new build eco cottages in the wilds of Scotland look ridiculously inviting amongst some of the most inspiring coastal scenery in the UK. With stylish interiors of Ercol furniture and specially commissioned tweeds, you’ll almost be tempted not to try the hot tub. The isolation looks so inviting. £220pn, the cottages sleep 2-4 in 2 doubles or a double and a twin room.

4. Llety Bodfor Hotel, Cardigan Bay, Wales. MrandMrsSmith.co.uk
During trips to The Drawing Room, Pete and I have really fallen in love with Wales. Pembrokeshire is high up on my list of places to visit on our own fair shores, but Cardigan Bay is a little closer for us and still looks very beautiful with the village of Portmerion nearby and all the outdoor activities that Snowdonia has to offer is the Coast becomes a little too bracing and blustery. £375 for 3 nights 29th to 31st March.

Are you tempted readers? Are you going away this Easter break?

  1. My parents own a beautiful holiday home in Cornwall which we always head to a couple of times a year but this post has inspired me to visit Wales again.

    Several years ago we stayed in the stunning Plas Bodegroes Hotel on the Llyn Peninsula on the West Coast of Wales, not far from Abersoch. The food is amazing and is well worth visiting the restaurant alone, even if you don’t stay there. We stayed in the Wisteria room which has views looking out over the garden.


  2. Sadly not as Im working but we are off to Devon later in the summer and have a trip to cyprus planned – like you I need a holiday to look forward to- somehow last year we didnt have a single holiday due to work and a baby. Madness, this year we are making up for it with three

  3. Easter brings a trip to Paris for us (my first!). We’ve booked a low budget hotel so that we could go all out on the entertainment – The Moulin Rouge and Jessie Ware. I am VERY excited!

    My OH is from the Devon area so when we visit we stay with family, but these places look lovely. I would really love to explore the Welsh countryside (have my eye on The Drawing Room after your review) and Scotland is high up on my ‘to go’ wishlist too.

    Loving the inspiration as always Rebecca 🙂

  4. I’m seriously craving some sunshine right now. But unfortunately due to a multitude of things I don’t think we’ll get a holiday this year.
    We are going to Dublin for a couple of days next month though so I’m really looking forward to that! (If anybody has any suggestions of places to see/eat/drink please let me know!!)
    I found this earlier while perusing Secret Escapes. They have Easter availability too and were featured on FF not long back!

  5. Just stopped by to dribble over the architecture of numbers 2 and 3. Love a quirky building.

    Only plans for Easter here are sleeping – I have been banned from making any more social arrangements or planning long journeys and told to put my feet up!


  6. Wow! They all look fantastic. I love the idea of a trip to the Scottish islands so will be making a note of number 3.

  7. What a great post! I am definitely in need of a little sunshine and this looks like a perfect location to go!

    Bisous from Paris,
