Christmas tree in holiday houseCottages for Xmas and New Year tend to get booked up early, especially large houses which 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 - please contact owners directly for details. However, you may be lucky still if you are looking for a large cottage for Christmas.  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.



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.  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.
