With summer in full swing, the August bank holiday weekend is perfect for families and friends looking to escape together for a last-minute holiday.

These properties are available over the upcoming bank holiday weekends, from 3rd–5th August in Scotland and 24th–26th August in the rest of the UK. Some of our holiday homes are available for full weeks whilst others can be booked for short breaks.
