This really is the most wonderful time of the year. It seems like only last week that we were revelling in the joy of a long weekend (because it was), and now here we are on the cusp of another. 

If the bumper run of bank hols has taken you by surprise and you find yourself plan-less for the early May long weekend, do not panic. As luck (and an Airbnb deep dive) would have it, there are plenty of pretty ace places that still have availability for the upcoming weekend (April 29 to May 2). 

Like this vibey 1960s poolhouse in the Cotswolds.
