Short festive stays

Holiday cottages available for breaks of a few days over Christmas and the New Year

When it comes to Christmas ‘short but sweet’ can often be the best way to do it. Whether you’ve stretched your annual leave too thinly to take off a full week, or you simply wish to go all-out just for a few days meaning you can fully indulge in the Christmas cheese before returning home, we’re offering short breaks over both Christmas and New Year at a handful of our festive favourites.

If you’d like to browse all available properties including breaks of 7 nights and longer, do take a look at our Christmas and New Year collections.
