Family Friendly Holidays with Sykes Cottages (PLUS Your Chance to Win)

Sykes Cottages are the UK’s leading provider of self-catering holiday homes with over 5,000 handpicked cottages to choose from. With a range of cottages stretching from the glittering Cornish coast to the magnificent Scottish Highlands, their selection provides something for everyone.




If you come from an active family then why not visit one of their isolated cottages which are ideal for walking? With many of these cottages set in the heat of a National Park, you can spend a day trekking the hills before returning to rest your tired feet by the open fire. Or if you’d rather spend an afternoon playing amongst the surf, then don’t worry as they cater for this too with hundreds of sea-front cottages- perfect for that all important summer BBQ!




One of the many benefits of renting a self-catering cottage with Sykes is that you don’t have to upset your child’s routine. With fully-equipped kitchens, you can make all the kids’ favourite dishes before playing a board game in the comfortable sitting area, then sending them off to bed with a smile on their faces whilst you relax in the garden with a glass of wine (or two). 





For your chance to win £200 worth of Sykes Cottages vouchers (enough to pay for selected weekend and 7 day getaways, or to put towards a more luxurious break) you can enter via the Gleam entry form below.
The giveaway ends at 11.59pm GMT on 28th May 2015.
Leaving a comment is mandatory but there are additional entry methods available also.

Good luck!
