Family-Friendly Spring Breaks

The daffodils are out, songbirds are singing, trees are budding...Spring is almost here!


Most people can’t wait for Spring to arrive, and backyard bird watchers seem especially eager for the earth, spinning on its invisible axis, to lean closer to the sun.

This subtle planetary shift creates warmer weather for those of us in the northern hemisphere and, best of all, an end to being cooped up inside the house during the bitter cold winter months. 


It's still not too late to book a springtime break this year at one of the fabulous castle properties within Celtic Castles' portfolio. Self-catering (vacation rental) breaks allow a much greater sense of freedom and so are particularly well-suited to family holidays.

One property offering such a break is Aikwood Tower. Located in the Scottish Borders, Aikwood Tower is a luxurious sixteenth-century renovated castle, sleeping up to ten overnight guests. 


The property is currently available, at discounted rates, for the following 2016 dates:

Monday 28 March 2016 - Monday 4 April 2016

Friday 8 April 2016 - Friday 22 April 2016

£2300 for 7 nights or £2100 for 3 nights.

All the above prices have been discounted by 15% for 3 night stays and 20% for 7 night stays (based on the tower's usual prices).


For details of other self-catering properties, suitable for families, with springtime availability, visiting our self-catering family friendly page.

Or, contact the Celtic Castles team, 7 days a week, for advice on the perfect place to take your family this springtime to encourage them to get out and about...be that walking, cycling, scavenger-hunting...or simply nature-watching.
