This reduction applies to week-long holidays from 26 May in the Malt House, one of 18 privately-owned properties at the Ivy Tower Village in St Florence where guests enjoy shared use of an indoor swimming pool, sauna, gym and a tennis court, along with a children’s play area.  The property, now priced at £692 for seven nights, sleeps four in two bedrooms and has a conservatory with stunning views across the Ritec Valley.  A short stroll leads to two of Pembrokeshire’s leading attractions – Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton Activity Theme Park – and a 10-minute drive leads to the seaside town of Tenby.

Primrose Cottage is a detached traditional stone property in the village of Pen y Cwm sleeping six in three bedrooms and now costing £873 for seven nights from 25 May, a reduction of £97.  The cottage, with beams and a large inglenook fireplace, enjoys excellent views of the coast and out to sea over St Brides Bay.  A garden gate has access directly onto a National Trust footpath leading to a secluded beach with sand and rock pools leading, at low tide, to Newgale beach popular with surfers.

Or, Llety is a carefully restored 19th century cottage situated in the coastal town of Newport with all its excellent facilities and a short walk from the beautiful Newport Sands beach.  The property sleeps four in two bedrooms and is full of character with exposed stone walls and beams.  It has a first floor sun room with sliding doors leading to a stone walled terrace and elevated garden.  A week from 26 May is now priced at £732, saving £126.

Canal Breaks discounted for May Bank Holiday Weekend

Waterways Holidays, the one-stop-online-shop for booking holidays on Britain’s inland waterways, is tempting couples and families with discounted breaks over the May Bank Holiday weekend with savings of up to £255 on normal hire rates.

“These Bank Holiday offers are brilliant, and a three-night break is a great way for first-timers to discover the beauty, tranquillity and history of the canals,” says managing director of Waterways Holidays, Nigel Richards.

For example, a Princess-class narrowboat based at Acton Bridge in Cheshire sleeps four to six people, and is now offered at £1020, saving £255, for a three-night weekend starting Saturday 5 May.  From its base on the Trent and Mersey Canal, an easy weekend break could include the lock-free Bridgewater Canal to the pretty market town of Lymm and leisurely meals at a canal-side pub in Sale Bridge.

At Ely on the River Ouse, a Duchess class boat sleeping up to four is £840, saving £209 on three nights’ hire starting Friday 4 May. Visit the magnificent cathedral before boarding Duchess and being introduced to the boat’s engine, steering and safety features. In a weekend, a quiet cruise to Cambridge is easy, passing through Wicken Fen en route. This wetland nature reserve has been managed by the National Trust since 1899.

And in Scotland, where boaters can see the awesome piece of canal engineering that is the Falkirk Wheel, a Lautrec Class boat sleeping four is offered at £900, saving £225. The Falkirk Wheel compensates for the differing heights of the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals , and raises and lowers boats between the two: an extraordinary experience at the start of a weekend’s cruise that can also take in ‘The Kelpies’ 30 metre high equine sculpture.

These boats all have central heating, well-equipped galley kitchens, dining/seating areas and modern shower rooms with flush wcs.  Everything need for self-catering is provided, including bed linen and towels.

All prices quoted include damage waiver charge, car parking while cruising, initial tuition at handover and loan of buoyancy aids. The only extra is fuel used during the weekend.

New for 2018: Idyllic Andalucía hideaway for couples from villa specialist Vintage

For couples seeking tranquillity, stunning views, a private swimming pool and no neighbours, villa specialist, Vintage Travel, reckons that Casa Rustica ticks all the boxes.

The property, new from the company in 2018, is an idyllic hideaway for two which enjoys panoramic views over olive trees to the inland lake of Embalse de Zahara backed by the Sierra de Grazalema Mountains.

Only at arriving at the cottage can the uniqueness of the setting be fully appreciated.  A series of country lanes lead from the typical Andalucía village of Algodonales from where a 1.5 km stretch of unmade road leads to the property’s entrance gates.

It is an ideal retreat in which to switch off, relax and soak up the views and this is echoed in the property itself with its rustic stone walls, a painted wood ceiling and terracotta flooring throughout.

In its extensive grounds of two and a half acres of olive trees, there is a private swimming pool with wooden decking and sun loungers, stone-clad open and covered terraces and a barbeque.

Places of interest to visit include historic Ronda (35 minutes by car), the lakeside castle-topped village of Zaharadela Sierra (seven kms) and picturesque Algodonales (two kms) with its local shops and restaurants.

A seven-night holiday leads in at £520, increasing to £1290 in peak season.  Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.
