These Christmas-themed holiday cottages are warm and cosy; designed to impart some festive cheer onto couples, families and groups of friends who have decided to do something different in December.


Birdforth Hall Cottages, nr. Easingwold

If you’ve got a large family in tow, this eight-bedroomed property (sleeping up to 18) is ideal for a Christmas get-together.

With the city of York, the coast, dales and moors within easy reach, this detached home makes for the perfect base. The property comes complete with Aga, wood-burning stove and superb leisure facilities (including a heated indoor swimming pool).

Daleside – Primrose Cottage, nr. Keswick

Can you imagine waking up on Christmas morning to glorious views over the Skiddaw mountain range? The properties in this magnificent rural setting have been converted from a former byre and are situated in a floral courtyard.

Sleeping four, this is a perfect base for some crisp winter walks: the ultimate Christmas getaway.

Warmhill Farmhouse, Hennock

How about Christmas on a farm this year? This 100-acre working farm – mentioned in the Domesday Book – is an ideal base to explore everything the area has to offer; from Cantonteign Falls to Teignmouth’s sandy beach.

The charming thatched farmhouse sleeps up to 12 and, if you have little ones with you, they will love the galleried bedrooms and are encouraged to help with the animals. Don’t forget your wellies!
