Luxury Holiday Cottages Available for Christmas & New Year
Christmas and New Year is the season where we can let ourselves relax a bit - the diet surrenders under the combined assault of numerous parties and mountains of delicious food, work can be put aside until January and we can reward ourselves for a year well spent. So when you book your December break, why not look up the scale a bit and treat yourself to one of our luxury cottages?
These four star gold and five star holiday homes are absolutely gorgeous, with plenty of high end features such as king-sized beds, cinema rooms, hot tubs, and even private swimming pools in case you want to make an early start on that New Year's Resolution...
Christmas and New Year is the perfect time to spoil yourself and indulge in all things festive, whether you treat yourself to a spa day, feast on decadent meals out in some of the UK's top restaurants, get lost in the twinkling Christmas lights while you browse the festive high streets, or experience the fun and excitement of a Christmas market. Whatever you choose to do, we've put together a little hit list to help you plan your Christmas and New Year holiday.
Shopping for gifts can be a stressful experience, but instead of adopting a Scrooge-like approach, throw yourself into the experience, enjoy the hustle and bustle of the high streets and embrace the fairy lights and sparkling displays with child-like enthusiasm! Smaller towns and villages really come into their own during the festive season, so why not travel a little further afield and try something different?
The premier Suffolk seaside resort of Southwold is a truly magical place at Christmas, with its quaint High Street and fine array of pubs and restaurants. Even the most reluctant of shopper could be tempted by the thought of a roaring log fire and a pint of famous Adnams ale!
The village of Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales travels back in time for the annual Dickensian Festival during the first three Saturdays in December. Visitors are treated to a glorious array of sights, tastes and smells from a bygone era. The village is adorned in Christmas lights, the square and streets come alive with a traditional market with shopkeepers and villagers dressed in Victorian costume.
For a shopping experience with a difference, wrap up warmly, sample local produce and find unique gifts at one of the many Christmas markets that will be held up and down the country. Visit Skipton’s Yuletide Market which is now in its 21st year and has stalls that run the length of the High Street and a real Christmassy atmosphere is provided by local brass bands and two of Santa’s REAL reindeer! At 4pm each evening there is a torchlight procession along the high street to the local church where a traditional carol service takes place.
Alternatively, avoid the city queues and celebrate all things festive at the Deepdale Christmas Market on the glorious North Norfolk coast. Held in early December there are a wonderful selection of stalls held in the local church and three large marquees, and new for this year, there will also be the Deepdale Street Food Festival. Sample the local produce, stock up on gifts and then enjoy a stroll along the coast during one of its most beautiful seasons.
So whether you're looking for a quick getaway before the festivities or a long a relaxing break over the Christmas and New Year period itself, we have plenty of luxury properties available for this special time of year.
