Celebrate the Festive Season on a Cottage Break with Family or Friends

2020 has been a strange year when making plans has been difficult.  Where possible though, booking early is recommended as festive cottage holidays are always popular for celebrations and family gatherings.  The options above can help you to find the best available self-catering cottage for a festive break where you can celebrate this special time of year with family or friends.

Christmas tree in holiday houseLarge houses in particular tend to get booked up quickly usually as these properties are popular with groups of friends and family looking to celebrate altogether, so it's best to book as soon as possible if you want to enjoy a getaway at the end of December or at the start of the year. 

It is especially important to book ahead for Christmas or New Year cottages if you're looking for a large cottage or a country house.   The smaller cottages for 2-6 people are still readily available.  Larger groups might be interested in opting for adjoining cottages in a cottage complex.  Popular choices include cottages with an open fire or wood stove, spacious or large country houses.  This year it's important to be aware of and follow social distancing guidelines too.

 

 

Ideas for Xmas Holidays and Breaks Over New Year

Festive celebration with friends and familyHaving difficulty in deciding where to go then perhaps you should take a look at the various events at Christmas and New Year to help you make your mind up.

If it's a few weeks before Christmas or New Year, then you might also wish to check Late Availability.  At popular times of year like the end of December and start of January there are lots of people searching for New Year properties or Christmas holiday homes so it's best to call cottage owners direct to book that cottage or log cabin as soon as possible.  Scotland tends to be a popular destination for New Year cottage breaks - the Scots are famous for their celebration of Hogmanay.

Wherever you decide to go this festive season you will usually find plenty to do within the UK and Ireland.  Christmas markets are now popular in many towns and cities and are wonderful for buying Christmas gifts, Christmas decorations and many sell mulled wine - what more could you ask for over the festive period.

A holiday let that is decorated for Christmas

Holiday lets tend to be have independent owners unless they are part of a cottage complex, so that the only way to determine what decorations will be put up for Christmas is to ask. Some holiday home owners will go to extremes to decorate a holiday home, others may not bother at all. It is difficult to please all tastes, it has to be a real fir tree for some, others might not object to a an artificial Christmas tree. The same applies to garlands, natural greenery or fake?
 
The only sure way of decorating your holiday home to your satisfaction is to take your own Christmas decorations with you.

Wherever you opt to holiday, we hope you find the best Christmas cottage or holiday home for New Year on Country Cottages Online.
