Any day now the colourful blur of Christmas is going to be a distant memory and we’re going to be feeling pretty frazzled. So, we’ve picked out ten of our favourite pads to put your feet up and ponder the year ahead…
You’ve got to cosy up in a fisherman’s cottage at least once in a lifetime, and this one’s just minutes from Ilfracombe’s gorgeous harbour. With a nautical décor to remind you that you’re on the North Devon coast, we love this family pad.
We can’t think of many places we’d rather be than in the sailing resort of Cowes. Set right on the High Street, this Grade II listed house has the kind of harbour views that’ll make you want to stay forever…and it’s dog friendly too.
Aaaaaaah, there’s nothing quite like a Yorkshire farmhouse, and this one sleeps ten. Perfect for that gathering with the family you didn’t catch up with at Christmas and enjoying long old walks across the Yorkshire Dales and Moors, this one’s for the walkers.
How about this for a sea view then? The Whitehouse is a second-floor apartment overlooking Watergate Bay, and if you love to cosy up and watch the waves crash on a winter’s day, then you’ll be in your element.
We know, you’ve probably just fallen in love with this one right? With its own sunken hot tub of tempting bubbly bliss, The Levels belongs to the Strawberryfield Park Premium collection, and what a showstopper.
If your new year’s resolution is to be a bit different this year, may we suggest you while away your break in a converted chapel? This period chapel sits on a working dairy farm in the Somerset countryside, so it’s the perfect place to wind down and cosy up before...
Fall back in love with being outdoors, with this beautiful woodland suite near York. There’s a king size four poster bed, a log burner and a sauna…well, what more could you need? Star Suite sleeps four, and trust us, you’ll feel like you’ve woken up in a fairytale.
With an onsite spa, restaurant and sauna, life at Beyond Escapes is all about switching off and winding down. Lodge 4 has its own hot tub for those evenings spent under the stars, and with three bedrooms it’s perfect for that catch up with the gang.
What’s a winter escape without your own cinema to curl up in?! Harbour Lodge has a cinema, hot tub, and the kind of interior design that wouldn’t look too out pf place in a glossy magazine. Set in the swanky resort of Sandbanks, this one sleeps eight.
If the Christmas whirlwind leaves you ready for some quiet time to ponder the coming year, we say why not sink into the hot tub and do it with a view? Set on a pretty farm surrounded by countryside, Kingfisher Lodge is all about walks, rest and walks.
