10 Reasons to Book a Winter Holiday 

“Feel the Winter coming on;
Hear it in the crackling trees;
Note the crisping, quivering wind
Sharply snapping at their leaves”
– Barbara Vance

Winter Holiday

A Winter Holiday can be nothing short of a dream, especially when the air is fresh, the fallen leaves are crisp and the sun is bright in the blue cold sky. You don’t need to go to a French chalet to enjoy the winter, there are Luxury Winter Holiday Cottages here in the UK. From secluded Log Cabins to Modern Mansion, here we explore Winter Holiday Cottages UK and why its time to book a Winter Holiday. 

See the First Snowfall of the Year

Experience the first snowfall of the year in a winter holiday cottage in The Highlands, Scotland. This rural escape will be just the break you needed and we love Pityoulish Barn, a beautifully converted agricultural barn situated in Carnigorn National Park. Views across Carnigorn and Spey Valley, this is a great way to get into the Festive spirit.   Walk hand in hand with your loved one as the snow falls around you. Or, if you need some time to relax by yourself, this could not be a better place to wind down and regroup. Winter first Snowfall

Winter Sun

Heading way down South to Cornwall, where the winter sun offers visitors beautiful sunsets, revitalising swimming  and a great place to experience open and quieter beaches. Head down to Trevone, located near to the infamous town of Padstow, for a beautiful and sheltered sandy beach. Padstow offers Luxury Winter Holiday Cottages such as the Cornish Coastal Cottages (located on Airbnb) which offers sea views and is just a short walk from the beach.  Rock Country, a Grade II listed estate with classical Cornwall stone walls, huge windows and an original fireplace. We couldn’t think of anything better than settling down with a glass of red in front of the fireplace in the evening, and waking up in the morning for a winter sun walk.

Winter Wonderlands

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland”
– Bing Crosby

The excitement of going to a Winter Wonderland is something we can all relate to. The lights, the music, the great food, the markets and not to mention the rides! Winter Wonderlands are the central hub of Christmas festivities. Consider booking a Winter Holiday Cottage in Edinburgh ready for their magnificent Christmas market (aka, a gigantic winter wonderland). We are particularly impressed by ‘Modern City Apt with Garage & Patio – Free Parking’ which can be reserved via Airbnb. Situated right in the middle of the city. Easy to reach the Winter Wonderland, yet far enough away to escape when you need to rest your weary eyes.

New Year Celebrations

It is always sad when Christmas ends however winter continues and New Year Celebrations are just around the corner. You could celebrate the New Year anyway, and with the last couple of years we have all experienced, we are sure that everyone will welcome 2022 with open arms.   The best place for a Winter Holiday to celebrate New Years might just be the Lake District, particularly in the Silverholme Graythwaite. This is a Georgian Manor House which is one of the best in winter holiday cottages. Boasting of an indoor swimming pool, children’s play area, fitness suite and so much more. Overlooking the lake this is a luxurious and elegant place to see in the New Years. Somewhere to take the friends or family or even both!

Festival Celebrations

Looking for a Festival to go to whilst on Winter Holiday? Consider Newcastle Gateshead for pantos, performances, Christmas food, carollers, ice skating, wreath making and many other Festive activities to enjoy. Why not pay The Alnwick Garden a visit and explore their beautiful light trail, starts on the 8th December and doesn’t end until 31st December 2021.

Get Cosy in a Luxury Log Cabin

Looking for a spectacular Luxury Log Cabin for your Winter Holiday? We have found something super special for guests looking to log off, unwind and escape the their busy lifestyles. This really is one of the best Holiday cottage winter breaks in the UK. The Hansel and Gretel House in the Woods is situated in a 200 acre wood and comes with a row boat for guests to make use of on the nearby lake. Perfect for a Winter Holiday.

Warm Up in a Toasty Hot Tub

Looking to reconnect with nature, your friends, your family this winter whilst also enjoying the modern and most popular Airbnb amenity: “The Hot Tub”? One fine and unique stay we located is the Airstream Campsite. This offers four caravans fitted with cosy double beds and one fitted bathroom. There is also a tree house with a double bed and a bunk bed. Ample space to get some space, and a wonderful fireplace in the middle of the campsite for you to sit around and exchange stories. Enjoy a Christmas movie in the outdoor cinema screen, whilst eating food cooked on the gas BBQ. A magical place to spend the winter holidays. Toasty Hot Tub for Winter Holiday

Embrace the beauty of our National Parks

There are many reasons to visit the UK’s National Parks, and one that we love to visit during the Winter Holidays is The Peak District National Park. There are an array of reasons to head to the Peak District for Winter, including but definitely not limited to, Chatsworth House, Parkhouse Hill, the largest reindeer herd in England, Haddon Hall and so many small independent shops perfect for Christmas Shopping. The Peak District offer visitors an idyllic winter, it is as if they have walked straight into a Charles Dicken Novel.  The limestone walls, the countryside walks and the beautiful cobbled streets contribute to that warm fuzzy festive feeling one gets when they reunite with their childhood Christmas memories. Looking for somewhere to stay? We would recommend “Romantic field barn with a contemporary twist!” situated in Grindon, one of the many fantastic Holiday cottages for winter. A secluded Holiday Cottage with an indoor fireplace, a romantic outdoor seating area and a heart-shaped wildlife pond!

Look Up at a Starry Night Sky

“She walks in Beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes…”
– Lord Byron

The Best winter holiday cottages are the ones that allow you to escape from everyday life. You are taken away from the stresses of the world and you are given the freedom to enjoy its beauty. One of the best Holiday Cottages for Winter, which allows you to enjoy the world and look up at a starry night sky is “CwmHill – ‘Best UK STARGAZING cottage’ + WIFI”. The cottage is situated in Wales, and benefits from zero light pollution, thus making stargazing a wondrous and awe-inspiring pastime whilst staying in this classical Welsh cottage. What better way could you spend a cold wintery night? Starry Night Sky in Winter

See the Beginning of Spring in the Forest of Dean

When winter comes to a close, and the bluebells start to blossom the Forest of Dean is the place to go. The wild bluebell displays are some of the best in the country and are not to be missed. If you have not yet visited the wild bluebells in the Forest of Dean, be sure to put the woodland trail in Spring on your bucket list.   A walk through the forest is one of the best ways to blow out the winter cobwebs and to get back to nature. An Airbnb that we could not take our eyes off is “Set in AONB & 40 Acres of Private Countryside”. This is a classic Forest of Dean cottage which is beautifully decorated, fantastically located and expertly managed. Forest of Dean Holiday cottage winter breaks in the UK are plentiful, but to find something truly unique and special takes some doing. Come & Stay Ltd loves travel, gorgeous homes and unique experiences. We believe fantastic holidays can occur at any time, whatever the weather and winter is no exception. Winter Holiday can offer snowfall, star gazing, family get-togethers around the fire, winter wonderlands, festivals, great food and so much more. Just because you aren’t sunbathing, it doesn’t make a getaway any less perfect.
