Love a Last Minute Summer Getaway?

Whether you’re a planner or a spontaneous type of holiday-goer, it’s always nice to squeeze in an impromptu mini break! Perhaps you need to jet out of the UK in order to properly switch off or maybe you’re happy to explore the wonders of your home country. Whatever you choose, there’s no doubt that it’s the best way to refresh and relax ahead of winter!

To save you some time we have highlighted our favourite mini breaks; and what’s more, they can all be purchased with a One4all Gift Card!

Keep it local

One thing the UK is famous for is its great selection of seaside holidays. To help you unwind, why not visit the spectacular coastlines of Cornwall, taste the terrific local cuisine and enjoy the amazing surf?

From just £59 pp, you can stay at the 4* Falmouth Beach Hotel where you’ll be just a stone’s throw from the stunning blue flag Gyllungvase beach (try saying that three times in a row!) You’ll also be close by to the South West Close Path and the heart of Falmouth’s vibrant town centre, so there will plenty to keep you occupied.

The bedrooms are en-suite, breakfast is included and all guests can use the spa and leisure facilities at the nearby St Michaels Hotel & Spa. A good foot massage will be just what you need at the end of the day!

For a holiday that is guaranteed to be jam packed and as enjoyable for the kids as it is for the adults, why not head to Thorpe Park in Lincolnshire? It’s directly next to the Pleasure Island Family Theme Park which will bring you hours of fun! What’s more, there’s a pool, sporting activities galore and even a bar and restaurant on site.

You’ll feel quite at home in one of the lovely three bedroom caravans. They sleep up to 8 people, so even granny and grandpa can come along too!
