Closer weekend getaways

Weekends away don't have to be sun-drenched or spent in exotic European cities to be fun. As the cold nights draw in, here's a selection of the cosiest, quirkiest, minibreaks in the UK.

Whether you're soaking in the bathtub in a shepherd's hut or stargazing in your secluded wagon, these will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged, and - even better – are all easy on your purse too!

Lilla Stugan, Worcestershire

Lilla Stugan, Worcestshire, from £80 per night, sleeps 2

Lilla Stugan, or 'little cottage', was inspired by the owner's long summers spent in Swedish summer houses. And what's not to love about a country where everyone reportedly eats an impressive 316 cinnamon buns each year?

To top off these sweet credentials, this quirky hut lives at the bottom of its very own apple orchard.

The Saltbox, Kent

The Saltbox, Kent, from £115 per night, sleeps 2

Elmley is the only National Nature Reserve in England where you can spend the night, so why not spend it tucked away in the marshland at The Saltbox on Kent's Isle of Sheppey. The cabin is stacked with vintage trinkets and stacks of cosy wool throws to wrap up in, and an entire glass wall means you can lounge in bed enjoying the views.

From £115 per night (sleeps 2) / 0117 204 7830

Pilot Panther, Perthshire

Pilot Panther, Perthshire, from £125 per night, sleeps 4

Just sit back, and relax.

From £100 per night (sleeps 2) / 0117 204 7830

Little Barn, Pembrokeshire

Closer weekend getaways
Little Barn, Pembrokeshire, from £90 per night, sleeps 2

if you're after total relaxation, the homely hand-built Little Barn is a place where you're more likely to come face to face with Welsh mountain ponies than another human. Packed with vintage goodies, you'll be living in the mezzanine level of the barn, and can breakfast outside overlooking your doorstep pond.

From £90 per night (sleeps 2) / 0117 204 7830
