Now we’re not looking to scare you but today marks just one month until Christmas Day. It’s ok if you haven’t bought all your Christmas presents yet and it’s definitely ok if you’ve not yet written your Christmas cards, but if you’re hoping to go away in a cottage over Christmas then you need to act fast! Our holiday cottages do book up in advance for the Christmas period so if you’re considering a Christmas getaway or if you need accommodation while you visit family, then now is the time to get planning. For a bit of inspiration, here are five wonderful family-friendly cottages that are still available.
White Moss, Wood Close, Lake District
White Moss, Wood Close is a delightful ground floor apartment on the outskirts of Grasmere- one of the jewels of the Lakes and the former home of William Wordsworth. The property overlooks Grasmere Lake with wonderful views from the living room window, making it a magical setting in which to spend Christmas; see if you can spot the resident red squirrels, badgers and deer! White Moss is pet friendly too, so you won’t have to leave any furry members of the family at home.
Woodstone Barn, Devon
This cosy barn conversion on a Devon farm is the perfect place for a family Christmas in the countryside. Sleeping up to 8 guests, Woodstone Barn is large enough to bring the grandparents too and if you need even more space for aunts, uncles and cousins, there’s an additional cottage sleeping 4 next door (Owl Barn) which is also still available for Christmas week. Take in the spectacular views across Dartmoor National Park, cosy up in front of the woodburner and spend your Christmas holiday enjoying the company of your family amongst beautiful surroundings.
The Mount, North Yorkshire
The Mount is a charming terraced cottage tucked away in the small Yorkshire village of Swinton. If your idea of the perfect Christmas is a characterful bolthole away from the crowds then The Mount is for you. There’s a roaring fire in a cast-iron Victorian fireplace to curl up in front of, a Rayburn nestled in a brick alcove to cook Christmas dinner on, and a children’s playground to the rear of the property to keep the kids entertained. Swinton’s lovely local shops and pubs are also within 5 minutes’ walk.
Westgate Retreat, Norfolk
Westgate Retreat is a bright first floor apartment in the coastal town of Hunstanton, just a few minutes’ walk from the beach- the perfect place to wrap up warm and walk off all those mince pies on Boxing Day! This lovely holiday rental would make the ideal home-from-home in which to spend Christmas if you’re visiting family in Norfolk and there’s plenty of room for everyone to congregate in the spacious living area to open presents.
Eglwys St Cynfil, Llyn Peninsula
If you’re looking for somewhere a bit quirky, how about this beautiful converted church in Penrhos? With a double height beamed ceiling, mullioned church windows and original features including a pulpit, Eglwys St Cynfil would make for a characterful Christmas getaway. The cottage sleeps 6 and is ideally situated in a tranquil location, yet within easy reach of the Llyn Peninsula’s stunning beaches and coastline.
