From action-packed weekends of adrenaline sports to lazing in the lap of luxury at country house hotels, from mucking in on working farms to exploring exciting cities, short breaks and weekends away are a great way of staying sane and entertaining the kids in between longer holidays and of taking a well-earned break from routine.
