Christmas Holiday Cottages in the UK

Posted by Luci Ackers on Oct 05, 2015

Why not do something different this year and spend Christmas with family and friends in a beautiful cottage, enjoying a festive break that is miles away from your usual surroundings?

Reignite the Christmas spirit in everyone by staying in a beautiful farmhouse, a seaview retreat, a country estate or a luxury lodge; we’ll provide the tree and decorations. Our holiday cottages are situated right across the UK and offer incredible scenery, which is perfect for that post-Christmas dinner walk.

Imagine snuggling up together on Christmas Eve in an atmospheric Grade I-listed manor or a renovated 18th Century weaver’s cottage. Believe us, it won’t only be the children who feel that holiday magic.


Christmas dinner

All of our cottages are self-catering, so don’t worry about not getting mum’s famous roast potatoes – unless you choose to eat Christmas dinner out, of course. Most are equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, complete with fridge, so bringing and preparing your favourite dishes won’t be a problem. The basics will be provided in your complimentary welcome hamper: tea, coffee, bread and milk, to name but a few essentials.


Location, location

With more than 300 cottages to choose from, your most difficult decision will be precisely where to spend the holidays. From the southern tip of County Kerry to the Scottish Highlands and with plenty in-between, there is something to suit everyone. Whether you want baby-proof, a romantic hideaway, spacious accommodation for a group or pet-friendly, we can help.

With some properties, it’s possible to arrange outdoor activities such as cycle tours, fishing and pony-trekking; so there won’t be endless hours to while away in front of the television.

Whether you want a cottage with a story to tell or one which is ultra-modern and luxurious; Cumbria, Cornwall or Carmarthenshire, we’ve got it covered (in Christmas wrapping).

And tell the children not to worry, Father Christmas will still find them!
