This winter, why not take that Christmassy feeling to another level? A stay in a National Trust holiday cottage is a sure-fire way to experience festive magic – whether you fancy a pre-Christmas escape, an extra-special place to spend the big day itself, or a New Year break.
Enjoy a classic Christmas setting
Just like the places we care for, each of our cottages is one-of-a-kind, complete with unique features and history. What could make for a more fitting festive base than a timeless cottage that’s seen countless Christmases go by?
Experience the season’s delights
Our holiday cottages are scattered through some of the most spectacular parts of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, they offer easy access to breath-taking rambles and hikes. Spend your Christmas, or the weeks leading up to it, on the southern tip of Cornwall, the dramatic cliffs of Ireland’s Causeway Coast, or at one of hundreds of country havens in between.
Also, many of our cottages sit within the grounds of National Trust parks and estates, giving you easy access to our Christmas events. As darkness falls this winter, many of our places will come alive with twinkling light displays and illuminated facades. You can take in decorations and Christmas choirs, or dip into markets stocked with seasonal delicacies and handmade gifts. Families won’t want to miss our sparkling Father Christmas grottos.
Whether you’re planning a big family gathering or a well-earned retreat for a couple of days, a break in one of our holiday cottages this Christmas time will help you to enjoy the best of the season.
