Easter breaks and holiday cottages go hand-in-hand. There is no better way to enjoy the fine spring weather than escaping to somewhere new or to one of your favourite English spots.

The Easter Holidays are perfect for getting away with the family during the school break or over the Easter Weekend. We have a charming collection of holiday cottages dotted all over the UK, in lovely locations such as Cornwall, Norfolk, Yorkshire, the Cotswolds, Devon and more.

Whatever your plans are there's still time to find the perfect Easter break away where you're sure to have an excellent time. It’s not too late to book an Easter bank holiday weekend away and the Trust’s holiday cottages are the epitome of a short UK break. Our special offers could be of great use when booking that special holiday cottage this Easter.

If you are seeking some holiday inspiration, visit our Days Out section to see all the wonderful places and activities the National Trust host. There will be events taking place at National Trust properties throughout the Easter holidays for all ages, with plenty to do for couples, families, friends and children alike. You can find out more about our events here.

If you need a last minute Easter treat, we have holiday cottages for all, including spacious cottages for family get-togethers, romantic cottages for two, along with coastal cottages and properties in some of the UK’s most adored holiday destinations.

You could spend the Easter bank holiday weekend in a holiday cottage on the beautiful coast around Cornwall or Pembrokeshire, amongst stunning scenery in the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District or explore the pretty towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

Cotswolds holiday cottages let you enjoy the freedom of the English countryside as the Cotswolds is home to a spectacular rural setting, vast hillside stretches and an abundance of twisting walking trails.

Enjoy cosy, comfortable Cotswold living with Spring Cottage. Small but beautiful with bags of character and period features make this quintessentially Cotswolds and perfect for couples. If you can drag yourself away from the cottage there is lots of pretty market towns and villages to explore, great restaurants for lunch, then you can round the day off in the popular local, the Snowshill Arms.

Our holiday cottages in Suffolk are dotted across the east coast and a stay in a Trust cottage will allow you to experience the glory of Suffolk.

The attractive, Bridge Farm Cottage sits beside a quiet country lane with gently sloping views down across grass meadows towards Dunwich village and the sea. A walkers paradise, coastal location and enclosed garden make this an ideal choice for families to enjoy East Anglia.

Like the look of Suffolk? Check out our Norfolk holiday cottages if you’re seeking a stay on the East Coast.  

Great Britain’s coast is full of fine beaches and pretty seaside towns. Trips to the seaside are often a holiday highlight, and as the spring weather sets in this Easter, heading to the beach will be top of the to-do list.

We have a special selection of coastal holiday cottages all over the UK, including Cornwall, Devon and Wales.

We have over 100-holiday cottages in Cornwall, with many located close to the shore of the west coast.

The two-century-old Birdcage rises up out of the higgledy-piggledy buildings of Port Isaac, now famous for the Doc Martin series. The pentagonal, three-stored Cornish holiday cottage injects a sense of quirky living and boasts picturesque views of the harbour. Sleeping two, the Birdcage is perfect for a romantic break and peace-seekers. In the perfect 'get-away-from-it-all location', Powders is nestled amongst the pine trees. It would be difficult to find a house with a more spectacular river view: a haven for birdwatchers, walkers or just those who want to sit and gaze at the water. Close to Truro and Falmouth, Helford is a great base for exploring Cornwall.

Famous for its bellowing cliffs and sandy shores, our holiday cottages in Devon are located in idyllic spots for a coastal holiday.

This marvellous High Brownstone Farm is an ideal cottage for a large family or group of friends to spend an unforgettable Easter holiday. Higher Brownstone also boasts a billiard room with a full-sized billiard table! For those who can tear themselves away from the sheer pleasure of staying somewhere as special as this, there is plenty to do in South Devon.

The Trust have more than 55 Welsh holiday cottages, ranging from stunning seaside properties to countryside abodes in the heart of Snowdonia.

The delightful, remote holiday cottage, The Cwms is reached by a little bridge over a stream and set in a wooded valley. Located close to the Pembrokeshire coast, this special holiday cottage will allow you to enjoy the best of the Welsh coast.
