Holiday Let and Deposit Protection Scheme

If there is a fixed-term summer letting to end by a fixed date in September, does a deposit have to be protected by the DPS?

Maybe there are rules for the duration of a letting, but I guess in holiday areas, e.g. a cottage on the coast, plenty of people want to rent such a place for the whole summer season.

I appreciate any help you can provide.
