Four adults only holidays in the UK

Let’s face it, sometimes you just need an adults only holiday in the UK. Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, a carer, grandparent or empty nester, you deserve a break. 

To help out our teacher friends who don’t have charges of their own our adults only holidays come in the form of one bedroom holiday cottages. These beauts also work for those seeking some lovely UK breaks where there won’t be a tantrumming toddler in sight.

4 perfect adults only holidays in the UK

Vineyard breaks

Pack the kids off to granny and a corkscrew in your overnight bag (not theirs!). Yes, most wine is screwtop these days but you don’t want to be caught short now, do you. Watch the gaggle of grown ups a little lost without small ones to keep an eye on, until the second glass of wine is poured and all is peaceful!

From Cornwall to Kent and up into central southern England, you’ll find English vineyards aplenty. What better kickstart to adults only holidays than the pop and fizz of an English sparkling wine?!

An eco lodge in the heart of a vineyard ensures you can do your bit for the planet as well as your own wellbeing at Trevibban Lodge in Cornwall.

Skip across the south coast to Sussex for something out of the ordinary amidst the vines and woodland of Oastbrook Vineyard. Tolkein fans will delight at Hobbit House and the hyperlocal tipple.


Waterfront escapes

Yes, kids love the water, but let’s take the stress out of waterfront escapes by just letting the adults go on these. Hear the lap of the water almost at your door. Listen out for the birdlife above. Soak up the rays as they reflect up at you from the water’s edge. No squeal of young children, no panic in your midst.

New for 2019 are these floatel cabins on the Milford Haven waterfront. Enjoy Pembrokeshire at its rawest from the ultimate comfort of your waterside base.

You won’t want to leave sunny Shaldon after a night or two in Beach Hut 2. Right on the beach, fish & chip suppers at your fingertips and a day’s sailing within sniffing distance. Ahoy there!


Grown up luxury

No sticky fingers allowed. Leave the baby wipes at home. Pack the best of everything you’ve got and… relax in luxury. Given you have the time to switch off and think only of yourselves, why not dip a toe into our luxury holiday cottages and enjoy absolutely every minute. 

Take an indulgent adults only holiday in the Cotswolds amidst the honey colour Cotswold stone. Country walks abound. Country pubs beckon. And you’ll soon be at home in the sumptuous interiors, and on the cute terrace of The Loft in Stow on the Wold. 

Adults only holidays in the UK don’t have to be a thing of fairytales, but you can have a Cinderella moment or two at The Tower in Abergavenny. Just look at that bed!


Off grid breaks for two

Escape to the country and the chance to holiday without Cbeebies, YouTube or Minecraft blaring in the background. Don’t worry, you won’t be completely cut off, should granny need to call, but you can switch off to your heart’s content. 

Utterly unique, Dragon’s Eye sets you beneath the dark skies and glistening stars inland from Cardigan Bay. Once you realise the bed swivels there’s little need to leave if you like the view.

Reflect on the industrious nature of rural life from the peaceful retreat of The Nutshell in the depths of the Kent countryside. Ghost hunters will be particularly taken with this option said to be in England’s most haunted village…
