Best Festive Availability

Published: 30th September 2020

No doubt about it, it's been a weird year and Christmas and New Year 2020 looks set to be a strange one too. So if you can, why not do something totally different this festive season? Instead of slaving away over a hot oven, you could be spending Christmas morning relaxing in a hot tub with a glass of something bubbly, or out for a walk on a remote and windswept beach. There are some amazing places free this Christmas and New Year, from luxurious glamping pods, to cosy cottages, to chic family houses. Here's our pick of the best festive availability.
