Holiday cottages for Christmas

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

The Scottish Borders, Northumberland and East Lothian are magical places in which to celebrate the festive season thanks to their unspoilt landscapes, beautiful seascapes and cosy holiday homes. Let the Crabtree & Crabtree elves sort out your Christmas and you’ll arrive to discover your home tastefully decorated for the festivities as well as a welcome pack bursting with Christmas goodies. Abandon yourself to country walks, carol singing and family time while we arrange a chef, wine delivery and extra housekeeping as required.
