Wave Goodbye to 2020 In Style, With A Well-Earned ‘Twixtmas’ Break!

2 December 2020

Known as Twixtmas, the week between Christmas and New Year is a time of both reflection and anticipation, as we say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new.

Let’s face it, it’s also a time for lounging at home, binge-watching TV, and eating lots of delicious food. But we’ve got a sneaking feeling that you might have had enough of all that by now!

So, this year, why not do your reflecting and anticipating in suitable comfort and style, with a well-earned break at one of these amazing properties?

(At the time of writing, each has availability during Twixtmas… but they won’t for much longer, so we recommend you get in quick! We count Twixtmas as the dates 27th – 30th December, but some availability may span a few extra days to allow you some more flexibility.)
