Holiday Cottages for Christmas

If you’re looking to make this Christmas extra special, then why not take the family away to a historic cottage in the country? Imagine waking up on the 25th to snow covered hills, a cosy log fire and presents under the tree… many of the properties are also large enough to accommodate extended family.

The other great benefit of having a self catering cottage over Christmas is that you can choose to cook Christmas dinner in the property, or alternatively head out to a local pub to have dinner cooked for you; if it’s the latter, be sure to check out our selection of cottages near pubs!

Perhaps you’re looking to take your whole family away this New Year instead? If so, be sure to check out our selection of large cottages.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or if want us to do the searching for you, simply fill in the form below with your Christmas cottage requirements.
