  • Large cottages for Christmas with decorations

    on 26/08/2015

    With the final few weeks of summer upon us, many people will have been chatting with friends or family whilst on holiday about plans for Christmas. A large holiday cottage is a great way to celebrate the festive period with loved ones. Country walks, friendly local pubs and evenings around a roaring fire are just some of ways to pass your time in the depths of winter. Of course, good food will be on the menu (if you pardon the pun) and some seasonal decorations will add to a lovely atmosphere. You'll l have enough to think about what with getting organised with food and presents, so I've selected my top 10 large holiday cottages where the owner will prepare the property with Christmas decorations for your arrival. There are some lovely properties still available, from north east Scotland to Cornwall, seaside cottages to holiday homes amongst the Lakeland fells.
