A New Year to remember

Treat yourself to a stay in a picturesque National Trust holiday cottage and begin the year as you mean to go on – sharing special moments with your loved ones. Our cottages are the perfect place to recharge your batteries – be it for the Bank Holiday weekend or a longer stay.

Pick a characterful cottage

From roomy lighthouse keepers’ houses to cute cabins in the forest our holiday cottages come in a range of shapes and sizes. Whether you’re longing for a low-key retreat, a big social gathering with your friends, or a refreshing family nature break we have over 400 holiday cottages for you to choose from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

New Year on the coast

What could be more invigorating for your New Year ‘new start’ than panoramic sea views and the taste of salt on the breeze? Take a coastal break in Cornwall to enjoy cliff top winter walks and pub meals in picture-postcard villages. The Old School House is an ideal option for a romantic break for two, and Guy’s Cottage.

Another of our favourite seaside spots is the Gower Peninsula. Imagine watching the first dawn of the year on sweeping sands, as the sun rises over the rugged landscape. To share this experience with your family or group of friends, opt for a stay in The Old Rectory. Or escape to the wide-open beaches of the North Norfolk coast, where couples can welcome in New Year from our Watermill Apartment.

Breath-taking countryside

It’s not all about the coast of course – the countryside can make for an equally stunning stay. How about New Year rambles through island-studded lakes in County Fermanagh? Or why not make The Old Smithy your base for exploring the moors and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales?
