Did all those Christmas cards remind you that another year has gone by and something must be done to see more of your friends and family?
Renting a large cottage for groups in Winter is a fantastic way to do this…and it doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, January and February is an ideal time; our weekends aren’t yet booked up and those lovely large houses with play rooms, snooker tables and even hot tubs are a fraction of what they would be in the summer.
Most properties offer 3-night short breaks in Winter and some are flexible enough to offer 2 nights.
So why not contact a few old friends and arrange a weekend. Here are some of the properties you could be visiting:
