Holiday cottages for Christmas and New Year

Celebrate a special New Year or your Christmas holidays in one of our luxury holiday cottages on Dartmoor.

Dartmoor is a year-round destination for those wanting to escape to a rural retreat and is a special place to celebrate Christmas and New Year. 

Book yourself into a Christmas cottage on Dartmoor to experience that cosy-when-the-weather-sets-in experience that makes a roaring fire and hot toddy all the more appreciated. Tuck into the annual feast in comfort with a quintessential winter view outside your window and unwrap presents safely ensconced in your hideaway. 

Celebrate New Years Eve in a cottage on Dartmoor and take to the moors for the traditional New Years Day walk to recover and wave goodbye to the year past. The moors are a great place for watching firework displays, with clear skies and open landscapes - climb up to the top of a tor and see how many you can spot on the horizon.

From bijou boltholes to manor houses for all the family, spend Christmas and New Year in a self catering cottage on Dartmoor for a festive season to remember.
