Come winter time, who doesn’t like to snuggle up on holiday, and enjoy quality time with friends and family in a lovely cosy atmosphere? Christmas and New Year are great times of year to enjoy a cosy festive break away in Britain.
If you are searching for a festive holiday cottage you will want to find a holiday home befitting the occasion. For many people, the best kind of cottage for a festive break is a cosy welcoming holiday home.
Certain holiday homes lend themselves to cosy festive holidays. Here are some of our best picks.
Cottages with Warming Woodburners or Open Fires for Festive Breaks
One of the top choices when it comes to festive breaks has got to be holiday homes with warming woodburners or open fires. Both people and animals love to snuggle up by the warmth of an open fire and watch the logs crackle and burn, or sit by the warming glow of a warming woodburner. It’s a simple pleasure but an important one in winter time that can make you feel all snuggly and warm inside.
Log Cabins with Warming Woodburners for that Special Holiday Feel
There’s something romantic about staying in a log cabin in winter time. Maybe it’s because so many Christmassy films feature snow clad wooden lodges, but there’s something special about winter log cabin breaks that give them extra festive appeal and can give you that special holiday feeling.
Many lodges are nestled next to forests or lakes which can look particularly beautiful in winter time, particularly when trees have been giving a dusting of snow or lakes have frozen over.

Charming Cottages with Exposed Wooden Beams for Festive Charm
Holiday homes with wooden beams exude charm and warmth. Whether barn conversions or character cottages, there’s something so welcoming and homely about houses with exposed wooden beams. Some of us just love them. Particularly in winter time, these types of holiday homes can be particularly welcoming, particularly when teamed with an open fire or warming woodburner.

Cottages with Country Views for Festive Holidays
Whatever the time of year, renting a holiday home with a countryside view is an appealing notion. Holiday homes with countryside views can be popular year-round as each season leads to different kinds of vistas. In winter time you might be able to gaze out to snow covered hills and fields or see the frost glistening over the surrounding landscape in the morning light. Holiday homes with country views can really help to uplift you and help you tofully appreciate the beauty of wintertime as you relax and unwind with friends or family on holiday.
Pretty, Quaint and Olde-Worlde Country Cottages for Christmassy Appeal
Maybe it’s because of the picture-perfect holiday cottage featured in the winter blockbuster ‘The Holiday’ that makes the notion of taking a break in a quaint and olde-worlde cottage at Christmas or New Year so very appealing. Usually, the prettier the cottage the better, and ideally your chosen holiday home would be kitted out with sparkly Christmas decorations and feature a door with a festive wreath to really give you that fabulous festive holiday feel.
