Christmas & New Year’s Eve Breaks in the UK 2022

If you’re thinking about a short break in the UK over Christmas and New Year it pays to be organised. Here’s a few ideas for hotel and B&B breaks, plus some self catering options from the Further Afield collection:


Tuddenham Mill – Suffolk

The romance of Tuddenham Mill cannot be exaggerated. Throw in Christmas and New Year hotel break packages including lunches and dinners in their award-winning restaurant and it becomes the ideal festive bolthole.

Tudor Farmhouse, Gloucestershire

The restaurant at Tudor Farmhouse is superb, so if you couple that with a wonderful bedroom then there are fewer ways we’d rather be spending Christmas or New Year. There are three night Christmas or two night New Year packages available (check them out here) across the festive period including fab Christmas menus. There’s also a Boxing Day special if you need a post Christmas escape.

Georgian House – London

Whilst the rest of the city leaves London for Christmas how about heading to Georgian House for a few days and holing up in one of their lovely rooms – including the Wizard Chambers (above). Explore the city or don’t, but either way this would be an unforgettable Christmas.

Cartshed Cottages – Norfolk

The cottages in the converted outhouses of this manor house are stylish and comfortable whilst retaining their character and charm. We love the simple palette used throughout as well as heading out to explore this fascinating part of the world. Availability’s limited, but with five cottages it’s worth a try.

Again, too late for the festive season proper, but get your wellies on to kick off 2023 as it should be! On the edge of a private lake with amazing views is this beyond cute house for two. Being small doesn’t mean missing out on space or a wood burner! Plenty to explore nearby including fab coastal walks.

Family & Friends: Larger Houses to Rent for Christmas or New Year

Old Barn Tregonetha – Cornwall (sleeps 5)

Whilst booked for Christmas and New Year, this multi award-winning barn conversion is a stunning setting for a break in the New Year. With its AGA, wood burning stove and grand piano it almost feels like you’ve stepped back in time. Luckily the mod cons and eco-friendly credentials remind you that this is very much a 21st-century bolthole. Stephen will arrange your shopping to be done for you too. If only the whole of 2021 could be this lovely.
