UK Winter getaways
Cosy cottage, majestic mansion or rejuvenate at a relaxing spa ?
We’ve picked a few of our favourite UK Winter getaways, although we do love to chase the sun, the natural beauty of our own country can sometimes be overlooked.
Cosy country cottages for an intimate weekend retreat or majestic manor houses for a lively house party weekend?
The Poet’s Hideway, Cornwall
This quaint little cottage for two can be found on the Western side of the Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, only a short distance away from the popular surfers’ paradise of Polzeath and sailing hub of Rock. With its wood fire, unique rustic style and idyllic setting, it makes for the perfect cosy couples winter weekend getaway!
Marsden Manor, Cotswolds
This magical Manor House sleeps 20 in the heart of the Cotswolds, with a swimming pool, tennis court, a games room, and plenty of greenery, what else would you want in a place to entertain 20 guests! We love that this house is powered by electricity from the water turbine, the pool and central heating system are heated from solar PV and the boilers are heated by biomass, which is also grown on the farm.
The Treehouse, Salcombe
The name says it all. It’s quirky yet cosy and comfortable, meeting all your needs for a true hideaway. Having said this, the iconic British seaside town, Salcombe, is within walking distance with great pubs, ice creams and a ferry to take you to the beaches.
The Black Swan at Oldstead, York
This Yorkshire hideaway has been voted the best rated restaurant in the world by Trip Advisor and has earned its Michelin stars too. From growing its own produce to recycling waste heat from the generator to heat the garden's polytunnlel, this is definitely on our list to visit! There is absolutely no hanging around when booking this as it fills up fast!
Lime Wood Hotel, Hampshire
If you are in need of a relaxing spa break, Lime Wood is the place to go. Set in the heart of the New Forest, the intricate attention to detail and fresh air will have you at ease in no time.
