The festive season can be a truly magical time of year to get away from it all and if you need help finding the best place to stay for you, Country Cottages Online aims to help inspire you on available options for Christmas or New Year.
For those who want a festive break with the minimum of hassle, ask before booking whether the holiday property of interest to you will be all decorated for Xmas. Many holiday homes owners nowadays ensure that cottages are decorated with a Xmas tree, tinsel and other Christmas decorations, but it is strongly recommended that you check this prior to booking to ensure that the holiday home will be all decked out ready for your arrival.
Holiday Properties for Christmas and New Year Getaways
Log Cabins – ideal for that holiday feeling, that smell of pine and for relaxed nights in. For plenty of atmosphere look out for cabins with wood-clad walls where you can really soak up the holiday feeling and lodges with a woodburner where you can relax by the fireside of an evening. For plenty of family fun on holiday, look out for cabins on complexes with leisure facilities such as a swimming pool, games room or gym (remember to check prior to booking to ensure that any leisure facilities will be open during the festive period).
Country Cottages for Festive Breaks
Perfect for hiding away in the countryside, rent a family-friendly country cottage and enjoy the rural life over Christmas. Secluded cottages where you can hideaway with friends or family are a popular option, as are properties with a warming woodburner or log fire. Booking a rural cottage with good walks nearby as well as a woodburner or open fire could be ideal choice for an atmospheric rural festive break. If you like a taste of town life too, remember to book a property with a town or village nearby so you can pop out for day trips over the festive period.
