Spring Breaks with Bounce! Waterside Cottages with Activities ‘on tap’.

After this long cold winter, the Spring equinox (tomorrow, 20 March) is more welcome than usual, and Waterside Breaks is highlighting holiday homes with easy access to outdoor activities from water-sports to axe-throwing!

Waterside Breaks is THE one-stop-shop for finding gorgeous cottages, lodges and glamping pods set beside Britain’s most beautiful lakes, lochs and rivers.

“Many of our holiday homes are ideal for active breaks,” says managing director Tim Wells. “Fishing of course; canoeing and other water-sports, hiking, cycling – on and off-road – and even axe-throwing at one location!”

In Perthshire, on the Loch Tay estate guests can not only choose from half a dozen different styles of accommodation, but from a superb range of outdoor activities in a breathtaking Highland setting. The freshwater loch offers fly and coarse fishing plus several options for canoe and boat hire. On land, there’s archery, mountain bikes and quads to rent, and guests can try their hand at canyoning, rafting, hiking, climbing and even deer-stalking in the locality. All activities are at extra charge, for example from £60 for a half-day’s boat hire.

Accommodation ranges from octagonal woodland cabins and ark-like glamping pods, through different sizes of Scandinavian lodge to space-age geodomes.  Many properties boast a private hot tub. The estate’s Boathouse bar and restaurant offers a break from self-catering and all this is magnificently set in 140 private acres rising from the shore of the loch towards the Ben Lawers mountain range, and is less than two hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

PRICES: a three-night weekend this Spring costs from £225 for a simple but stylish two-person geodome. A weekend in a ‘wigwam’ pod with its own shower/wc, kitchen corner, wood-fired hot tub and fire pit starts at £320. A typical three-bedroom lodge sleeping six with south-facing deck for amazing views over the loch costs from £485 for three nights.

Other options include:

Wall Eden Farm in Somerset offers eight lodges on the banks of the River Brue. Activities on-site include axe-throwing (three types of axe can be used under supervision!), rifle or air pistol shooting and archery. There’s cycle and canoe hire, plus fishing in pond or river. Prices for a three-night weekend in a lodge sleeping up to six start at just £349. Activities are extra, for example from £15 per person for axe-throwing.

The forty square miles of the Cotswold Water Park region offer a host of activities, from water-sports on some of the 150 lakes to cycling and hiking. From Easter, an inflatable assault course off-shore from the man-made beach is in operation! The Cotswold Water Park region offers the widest choice of holiday homes, ranging from fisherman’s log cabins to high-end contemporary lodges.
