Many people like to get away for a refreshing break during the winter, even for short breaks or weekends. The prices can be lower too. Many holiday cottages and self catering accommodation are suitable as they have central heating and open fire-places where you can relax in front of a blazing log fire. You won't be able to do many outdoor activities and you'll need to make sure the cottage has what you need for the long winter evenings. You may want a colour television and DVD player or nearby pubs where you can spend the evening.
Winter breaks include Christmas and New year periods offer a wonderful opportunity for a traditional festive occasion, or simply for curling up in front of log fire in an idyllic setting. As holiday cottages and self catering accommodation become popular around these periods so you can expect to pay more than other times during the winter.
