2024 School summer holiday cottages for £500 or less
Planning ahead for the school summer holidays can be a real challenge!
Whilst the kids look forward to 6 weeks off from school, relaxing in what is hopefully the best weather of the year, parents are often left having to juggle work commitments with childcare.
And then there’s the thought of finding some where to go away on holiday.
Jetting off overseas isn’t for everyone: it can be costly and of course, you lose a day each end of your holiday in the airport just travelling.
So, with more and more people holidaying in the UK, we have made it easier for you by gathering together all our holiday cottages that are available for 7 nights during the school summer holidays, for £500 or less.
How to find a cheap holiday rental for the 2024 school holidays for less than £500
The good news is that Holiday Cottage Compare has made it super easy to refine your search by budget. We’ve collected all our cottages available during the summer holidays for £500 or less here.
But if you want to amend this, it is very straightforward. Simply increase or decrease the amount you would like to spend and the search will auto update your results.
You can of course also choose to switch off the budget restrictions and look at everything that fits the bill.
Cheap holidays in the UK for the summer vacation
The beauty of holidaying in the UK is the huge variety of landscapes on offer.
From the perennially popular coastlines of Devon and Cornwall, up through the valleys of Wales, across the hills of the Lake District and into the remote reaches of Scotland, there’s something for everyone.
Whether you love the bustling seaside towns, full of entertainment and long stretches of beaches perfect for families to build sandcastles. Or you prefer to escape from people and technology and head for the hills, holiday makers in the UK are spoilt for choice when it comes to planning the perfect holiday.
Not only does Holiday Cottage Compare have literally thousands of cottages throughout the UK, we have also made it simple for you to search and filter what’s important to you.
So if you would like to look for properties that are ‘secluded’ and ‘rural’, then simply add those filters.
And if a ‘sea view’ or ‘coast nearby’ is more your thing, then add that instead.
Refine your search by drive time, distance or your own quirky drawing!
If it’s more important to travel say, no more than 2 hours from your house, then you can set that as a limitation. Or 200 miles.
Or if you don’t know an area particularly well but know roughly where you want to go, we’ve got a handy feature that allows you to draw your own area on our map and search for all the relevant properties within. Make it as quirky a shape as you like!
Wherever you are looking to stay, we have got the perfect cottage for you.
Add in the child friendly features that matter to you
Holidaying with school children is all about forward planning. Planning for wet weather. For boredom. For proximity to the beach. To the shops. And restaurants.
There’s a lot to consider. And reassuringly, they are all feature tags you can apply to your search.
So if it might rain or someone is going to complain of boredom, then you might want to consider adding in a games room. Or a home cinema.
A holiday cottage with a swimming pool or hot tub is never going to disappoint. And if you’re children are younger, they might love to know you can specify cottages with a trampoline, swing or slide on our site!
On a more serious note, if you have particular access issues, you will be pleased to know that you can add these requirements to your search. Things like a stairgate, downstairs bedroom and bathroom or wheelchair access.
