Holiday cottages for Christmas

Christmas is a time for enjoying life’s simple pleasures: for gathering your loved ones around you and escaping the everyday

The North of England and South of Scotland are magical places in which to celebrate the festive season thanks to their unspoilt landscapes, beautiful seascapes and cosy holiday cottages. Think: wintery walks through frost-covered countryside or invigorating stomps along glistening beaches before returning to your home-away-from-home to warm up next to the fire with a mulled wine in hand and family and friends by your side.

Let the Crabtree & Crabtree elves sort out your Christmas and you’ll arrive to discover your home tastefully decorated for the festivities alongside a welcome pack bursting with Christmas goodies. Abandon yourself to festive fun, carol singing and family time while we arrange a chef or a special doorstep delivery to ensure that Christmas 2022 is one to remember.

Fancy a New Year break instead? Explore our New Year availability. Browse our Festive Offers to view special promotions on holidays in Northumberland, the Scottish Borders, East Lothian, Midlothian and Yorkshire over Christmas and New Year.

These properties are available across the Christmas weekend (24th - 27th December 2022). Some of our holiday homes and cottages are available for full weeks whilst others can be booked for short breaks.
