Will your travels keep you at home or take you away this year?
As lovely as our ‘homes’ are, we could all do with a break from the same walls, gardens and country walks. For those of us who love to travel, it’s been a frustrating time, and we are aching to get away to see something different. But we know that not everyone either wants or feels able to leave the country just yet. That’s why we’ve put together a few ideas, both home and away, that with get you planning your next trip.
So whether you dream of chilling in Portofino, surfing in Devon, sun-baking in Greece, walking in Wales, touring Croatia or golfing in Scotland, let us help you to get away for a wonderful, much-needed break (or two) this year.
We still offer our NO RISK travel terms on our UK and overseas holidays. Low refundable deposit and if we arrange your air travel to your destination, your booking will be ATOL bonded. Perhaps take a helicopter to Devon or fly in a private 4-seater plane to Scotland? Wherever you choose to travel, do it well.

Grove of Narberth, Pembrokeshire, Wales
Nestled in the heart of the rolling Pembrokeshire countryside with beautiful views of the Preseli Hills, The Grove of Narberth was named the Best Hotel in Wales in The Times and Sunday Times Best Places to Stay Awards 2020. And we can see why!

The Essential Croatia Tour
For eager travellers who like to be on the move and really get to know a country, Croatia is a great choice. Explore the stunning cities of Dubrovnik and Split, kayak around the beautiful island of Hvar and hike into the hinterland to visit the amazing seven waterfalls of the Kyka National Park.
Our Essential Croatia Tour is terrific for families and couples. It’s the perfect antidote to a year of being homebound – wonderful sun, sea and of course delicious food!
Links House at Royal Dornoch, Scotland
Of course, this is a golfers dream, but Links House offers so much more. The hotel is situated on the Moray coast which benefits from its own unique microclimate. Despite its northerly position, it has a temperate climate, plenty of sunshine and much less rainfall than the west coast of Scotland, meaning that you can stay out for longer and drier on the course, stalking or castle-exploring.
As you’d expect, guests stay in beautifully furnished rooms, can indulge in the blissful spa and then choose a favourite tipple in The Carnegie Whisky Cellars.
