If the hassle and stress of organising a holiday abroad just doesn't seem appealing then Cottages & Castles, Scotland's pre-eminent holiday lettings company, has a number of great options to help you make the most of your time off and explore a new location ahead of the busy summer period.
Sue Bourne, Manager of Cottages & Castles is preparing for the busy spring months and recommends booking early with the chance of a spring discount on certain properties with some houses offering up to 25% discount on last minute bookings.
Sue said: "We are experiencing high demand for luxury accommodation over the Easter period, mostly from families who are looking to spend quality time together but don't want to run out of things to keep them entertained, and there is no chance of that in the central belt, even on a rainy day."
Central Scotland is an easily-accessible region and is bursting with iconic landmarks, thriving cities and delightful landscapes. Often cited as the region which combines the best of Scotland with Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth all within an easily travelled distance of one another, and with the mountains and lochs of the Trossachs National Park equally as close by the central belt is worth putting all your eggs in one basket for this Easter break!
Cottages & Castles have a number of family friendly properties for the perfect Easter getaway including:
Cromland Cottage West is nestled away in one of the prettiest glens in Perthshire and presents a wonderful family retreat ideally located to enjoy the Scottish countryside. The cottage is beautifully furnished throughout, and has views over the Strathardle Valley. There is plenty to tire the kids out in the area with white water rafting, canoeing and kayaking all available, whilst a 15 mile drive takes you to Glenshee ski centre, Scotland's largest ski area which has enjoyed record levels of snow making Easter skiing highly probable this year.
