As wonderful as the Christmas holidays are, they’re rarely the most relaxing time of year. So why not make an early New Year’s resolution and book yourself a well-earned break this January? With hundreds of remote getaways to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect antidote to all the midwinter madness (and all those mince pies!)
With crystal-clean air, snow-dusted hills and the satisfying crunch of frost underfoot, the Lake District provides a spectacular backdrop for a winter walking holiday, all with barely another soul in sight. Of course, if you’re travelling with children, remember to bring a sledge or two!
For a more peaceful getaway, you could head to one of our woodland cottages, where the stillness of the trees, the frosty hues of winter, and the year’s first snowdrops create a dreamlike atmosphere. The perfect place to reflect on the year just gone and look forward to the year ahead.
Or why not escape to the Cornish coast for some winter sun, British style? OK, so you’ll need to bring a jacket. But the warming sea air does create the mildest climate in Britain, meaning the area’s subtropical gardens remain vibrant, even in the depths of winter.
Below you'll find a few suggestions on where you can stay in the New Year, you can also search for your next break here.
