Christmas holiday cottages

The best Christmas holiday cottages to rent over the Christmas period (23rd - 27th December 2024)

Why not plan ahead and take the stress out of the coming festive season by booking one of our large party houses?  Or perhaps a cosy romantic retreat for two, far away from it all, is more your thing?

Either way, we have a fantastic range of self-catering holiday cottages and apartments throughout the UK to make this Christmas that extra bit special for everyone.

Why book a holiday cottage for Christmas 2024?

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to get friends and family together, especially if you wouldn’t otherwise have enough space to accommodate everyone.

There’s something magical about staying in a huge stately home over the festive period – is there anyone who wouldn’t enjoy running down long corridors with the kids, looking for secret passages?!  Or cosying up in front of a huge log fire?

And booking a holiday cottage can really take the pressure off hosting. Not only can it allow you to book a much larger property, you might find that that everyone is keener to pitch in and help lay the fire, cook the turkey dinner or even wash up!

Things to do over Christmas

Whether you prefer the traditions of old, singing carols around the piano (we have a good number of holiday cottages with a piano!), roasting chestnuts on an open fire (yep, we have thousands of cottages with a log fire!) or relaxing in front of the television, we guarantee that we have something for everyone. Including cottages that come decorated, complete with a Christmas tree.

And when you have tired of all the feasting, why not stretch your legs and explore the surrounding area? Many of our cottages can be booked in or around areas of interest such as National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the UK’s coastline.

Nothing beats a bracing walk along the beach with the kids and the dogs on Boxing Day, to burn off those Christmas calories…
