Libraries are good for books on the editing, particularly recommend the Dummies or Idiots guides. No offense, thats what they are called. For the beginner they are excellent. See if the library can get you this click here or just pop in and see. Can't help with the holidays I think in the UK your best info would be the Tourist Board or their website.
I'm sorry I just reread this, you want a holiday where you can spend your time learning about video editing. Sorry I never read it properly, try your local colleges, they may do residential courses perhaps.
