Winter Short Breaks

Treat yourself (and others) to a winter warmer this year by booking a wonderful Group Stays property in the UK! Cosy cottages, luxurious lodges and marvellous manor houses - what more could you ask for?

Imagine the scene - the snow is gently falling, your family and friends surround you, the children dash outside into the snow before declaring it far, far, far too 'freezy' and opt to swim in the indoor pool instead! Sounds great right? Well this really isn't in your imagination. Group Stays has a fabulous selection of self catering holiday accommodation to choose from this Winter!

Property locations vary as do the size of the properties that we have. Never too far from main infrastructure (we don't believe in travelling miles and miles into the middle of nowhere while enduing the phrase 'Are we nearly there yet?') but always providing privacy and a super spot for exploring countryside, towns and villages!

Because we hand pick the properties on Group Stays you can be sure that they are brilliant. Options include Luxury lodges sleeping 14 in the Somerset countryside. Ideal for a stomp through the fallen leaves after lunch before warming up in front of a wood burning stove pehaps?! How about a small romantic cottage, which actually used to be a railway carriage, with your own private hot tub. Luxury touches and a spot of star gazing while the steam from the hot tub slowly engulfs you. 

Maybe you have ideas about a weekend away to brighten the long dull days after the New Year celebrations and fancy getting the girls together for a bit of 'Me Time' AKA a good old natter and a knees up!! Our self catering holiday homes will provide the perfect venue. You could even take the stresses of all the logistics away by having a food and drink delivery for when you arrive!  Oh, and why not book some pampering during your stay to make the most of the relaxing time away. Most of our properties advertise a whole host of wonderful tried and tested extras that you can select and book to make your stay even more enjoyable. Pampering, craft activities, wine tasting and even professional photography are listed throughout the property pages. 

Lets not forget the dogs that we may have! We do also have some excellent dog friendly holiday homes just waiting to welcome you and your loyal companion. So you really can take the whole family away. There are some dog rules so please make a note of these before booking. 

As ever we make booking your perfect holiday property really easy with our online booking system - you'll find availability calendars on most properties. And those that don't just contact the owner and they will be happy to check their availability. Wishing you a wonder Winter short break with Group Stays!
