Get the perfect start to 2024, celebrating in a stylish self-catering cottage. Our extensive range of cottages, sleeping 8+ people, are perfect for couple get-togethers, family celebrations or as party venues for a group of friends. Whatever bedroom configuration you need or if you’re looking for a cottage with a Games Room, Hot Tub, Sauna, Tennis Court, Annex or bracing walks straight from the door to blow away those sore heads, we are here to help.
Arrive at a spotlessly clean cottage boasting home comforts such as underfloor heating, log fires, coffee machines and ice makers. Lay the dining table, cook up a feast and enjoy an evening of chatting and laughing. Then in the early hours of the morning, you can crash out in a comfortable bed, made up with fresh sheets which will make hitting your pillow a joy. Best of all, when it comes to leaving, you won’t have to wash a single sheet.
Getting everyone together for a couple of nights has never been easier. We have self-catering properties set in stunning countryside and near beaches perfect for a bracing New Year Day family walk. What’s more, our family cottages boast different bedroom configurations to suit any age, handy snugs and nooks for the kids to enjoy and added extras like a games room, Hot Tub and outdoor games area, to keep everyone amused.
If you and your mates are looking to celebrate the night away in a self-catering cottage, we have cottages equipped to ensure your night goes with a real swing. Well-equipped kitchens, tables capable of seating everyone for meals, comfortable sitting areas and bedrooms with individual beds with fresh linen and soft towels.
We know how important it is to ring in the New Year, in the right way. Forget impersonal, over-crowded parties or having to do all the entertaining solo; why not share the load in a self-catering property, set-up perfectly to your needs? There are so many good reasons to book a cottage…
Encourage everyone to chip in, and bring a wealth of meals, drinks and snacks to cover all bases. Getting guests to bring any special dietary requirements they may have, will ensure they don’t miss out. Of course, if you don’t fancy doing it all yourself, book a meal out or see whether we can organise a chef to supply a supper or a bartender to run a Cocktail Workshop. Lastly, setting-up a Prosecco, Hot Chocolate or Cocktail station can add a bit more fun.
Whether it’s fun and fresh during the day or cosy and intimate in the evening, your cottage should be set-up to help you set the tone. Encourage people to take decorations, especially for the table, as they can add a bit more flair to your evening. Stoking the fire, closing the curtains, dimming the lights and lighting the candles will all inject a bit of ‘cosy’ into the event.
Having some well placed games to liven up the evening is always a great hit with adults and children a like. Some cottages have designated games rooms with pool tables and table tennis to entertain. Alternatively, you can bring your own games, such as Two resolutions and a Lie; Champagne Relay Race, New Year Pinata…. the list is endless. Of course, there’s no end of games you can play with a box of Maltesers.
Don’t miss the bong at midnight? Set your timers, get the TV on and get ready for a rendition of Auld Lang Syne or have a specially selected playlist to see-in the New year.
Whether it’s a walk to a local pub, clearing the cobwebs with a New Year’s Day walk or visiting a near-by town or city, you won’t get bored.
Embrace the dark nights, enjoying a star-lit soak in your hot tub. Crash out with your very own cinema room or keep the kids entertained with a tennis court, heated pool or play zone. Our cottages come with little extras to help things go more smoothly.
