Make this Christmas holiday extra special by doing something different. Gather friends and family to celebrate Christmas and New Year together in one of our cottages.

Whether you fancy staying in a simple farmhouse or wood cabin, or experiencing life in a medieval hall house, you won’t be short of unique properties to choose from. Rediscover nature as you nestle yourself amongst the trees, find yourself high on a hill or stay along the sweeping coast in one of our Christmas cottages.

If you want adventure or relaxation this Christmas, you won’t be short of things to see and do that the whole family will enjoy. Breathe in the crisp winter air as you explore vast walking trails across the coast, countryside and gardens. Get involved with Christmas activities at some of our properties or sit back, relax and play some games while you unwind in front of the log burner.

Whether it’s a cosy getaway or a Christmas holiday for all the family, our Christmas cottages get you closer to the special places we care for. While you stay, enjoy free or out-of- hours access to the gardens and estates. Take your time to explore and indulge in the wonders on offer right on your doorstep. What’s more, the money from your holiday helps care for these special places for future generations.
