Family Friendly Holiday Cottages Available for Christmas & New Year

Is there a more exciting time for children than the two week Christmas and New Year’s break? We think not, but it can be made even more exciting by taking them on a Cottage Holiday!

You can stay in some of the most fantastic places in the UK, wear the kids out on Christmas Eve by exploring the local area, and when the inevitable 5.00am wake up comes, being in a beautiful cottage will make it almost bearable. (Oh, and in case you were wondering, there’s no need to worry – when you book a Christmas break with us we forward your change of address to Santa, free of charge!)

And if you can’t bear the thought of being away over Christmas then why not go away for New Year and enjoy the start of 2016 in style? It's a great way to round off the festive period and you can stay for as little as 2 nights, a week or even longer!

Enthralling Festive Experiences
If you haven't quite decided where to go then can we persuade you to Norfolk which is home to the small village of Thursford which is the setting for the largest Christmas show in the country! Set amongst the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels the Christmas Spectacular is a fast-moving celebration of the festive season with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians. The three hour performance delivers an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety and is fun for all the family.

Alternatively, head to East Sussex step back in time and experience wassailing at Bodiam Castle. Children can take a trip to see Father Christmas in his castle grotto or join in with some craft activities, whilst the grown-ups enjoy a mince pie and glass of hot wassail (hot mulled cider). On a stroll around the grounds, see the castle decorated with festive medieval greenery.

There's hundreds more great reasons for a festive getaway so please call us now, let us know what you like and we'll take care of the rest!
