Getting away with the family at Christmas can be a great way to recharge, rejuvenate and spend the festive season making special memories instead of slaving over your kitchen stove. Here are the UK’s best rental properties for families to make Christmas as relaxing for parents as it is for kids.
Cosy up at Christmas in this traditional stone barn conversion in the heart of the Cornwall countryside. Ideally located to explore the whole county, the property is within an easy drive of Fowey to the south and Polzeath to the north. Tiny local areas such as the fishing village of Polruan or the riverside village of Bodinnick are the perfect destination for a morning out feeding the ducks, enjoying afternoon tea or taking a stroll by the water. Child-friendly attractions nearby include the famous Eden Project and several National Trust properties for wintry nature walks.
Fowey offers several Michelin restaurants and is increasingly known as a ‘foodie’ destination, the ideal place for a memorable Christmas dinner that someone else will cook! The cottage itself features a hot tub (shared with the other cottages on the property), WiFi and is dog-friendly, so the whole family can holiday together.
