Luxury Cottages to Rent in December

A truly magical time of year for a UK holiday, December brings the opportunity to wander empty beaches, admire beautifully illuminated harbours and villages and cuddle up in front of the fire with a glass of mulled wine and the fire blazing. Read more

Ah, those crisp mornings and cosy evenings. If you love the countryside and are looking forward to lots of walks surrounded by frost-laced greenery, our rural retreats will be just right for you. Or, how about our sea view cottages? Known for notoriously dramatic weather, December can bring with it some truly breath taking storms which are amazing to watch from the comfort of a home-from-home. Escape the hustle and bustle with a break in the run up to Christmas, or book yourself a festive getaway to celebrate Christmas or New Year.
