In Need of a Festive Break? These UK Properties Are Available for a (Well Deserved) Christmas Getaway…

11 November 2020

The strangeness of 2020 has seen many of us having to put our holidays on ice.

But happily (end of lockdown rules permitting), there’s still time to squeeze in a UK staycation.  Even more happily, these amazing properties have some availability left over Christmas and/or the New Year -including Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.

(We think there’s something particularly special about welcoming in the new year from a relaxed, magical holiday setting.)

Availability varies for each property, so take care to check dates and information carefully before booking…

…which we suggest you do sooner rather than later, as they’re bound to be popular!
