Looking to get away from it all with your family this Christmas or New Year? The festive period is a popular time of year to take a break away from it all so be aware that holiday houses book up quickly and that early booking is recommended. The type of holiday rental that you’re searching for, for your December break, will depend on the age of your children and whether you’re holidaying with a babe in arms, tots, younger children or teenagers.
Whatever the age of your kids, Country Cottages Online has put together some helpful hints and ideas to help you find the perfect family-friendly rental for your festive getaway.
Holiday Rentals with Leisure Facilities for Relaxing Festive Holidays
Whether you have young kids or teenagers, one of the most popular choices for Xmas or New Year getaways is renting a holiday rental with leisure facilities available. Properties with indoor facilities are preferable for December or January breaks.
At most holiday properties swimming pools will be open over the festive period but it’s always recommended that you check before booking as at some holiday complexes for example it may be that facilities close over this time of year. Also be aware that some holiday homes have private facilities whereas at others they will be shared. Also, be sure to ensure that the holiday home you book for a festive break has access to an indoor pool as some holiday homes have outdoor pools which are closed over the winter months.
Games Rooms for Entertainment on a Festive Break
Whatever the age of your family members, when holidaying over winter when the weather can get a bit chilly, renting a holiday home with facilities to keep you entertained can make perfect sense. Some holiday houses feature full on games rooms with a combination of facilities like a pool table, table tennis and even table football, whereas others may just have a snooker table for example.
Be aware when searching for a child-friendly holiday rental with a games room, that some houses have facilities outdoors. When it comes to booking a festive break when the weather is likely to be cold, it’s strongly recommended that you book a property with indoor games facilities.
Cottages with a Movie Room for Film Fanatics
When it comes to holidays over Christmas or New Year, sometimes there’s nothing more comforting than just relaxing and watching a film. If you’re family loves to watch films over the festive period, renting a holiday home with a cinema room could be a great hit. At some of these rentals there will be facilities to watch the likes of Netflix or Sky too!
