Now the nights are drawing in and Christmas cards are ten-a-penny in all the shops, thoughts turn to where to spend the festive season. Although Christmas is now less than seven weeks away, the good news is that there’s still time to book a cosy cottage for a short break with your nearest and dearest. A Christmas holiday cottage offers you the ultimate in relaxation; most cottages will be tastefully decorated on arrival so all you have to do is enjoy! There’ll be no arguments about whose turn it is to untangle the fairy lights this year! For even less stress why not arrange for your groceries to be delivered a few hours after you arrive to save you hunting for the local shop? Once you’ve settled in, all you have to do is listen out for the sleigh bells and wait for a visit from Father Christmas himself. Don’t forget to leave him a mince pie and a carrot for Rudolph before you go up to bed. Cook up a turkey with all the trimmings in the well-appointed kitchen for a traditional British celebration. After your festive feast, there’ll be more than enough people to volunteer for the dishes so all you have to do is pick which chair is best for an afternoon snooze in front of the fire!
