With the New Year just around the corner, most people will be planning their New Year’s Eve celebrations. So how will you be welcoming in 2016?
Why not spend a few days in a cosy cottage in Northumberland for a memorable New Year celebration.
Grace Darling Holiday cottages provide an ideal base for a big New Year party with family and friends. There are a range of large, self-catering properties that can accommodate the whole of your group in comfort. You could choose a cottage with plenty of space to dance the night away, or even choose a cottage with a large TV so you can watch Big Ben strike midnight in luxury.
New Year prices are available for many of these cottages so splitting the cost between groups could be an affordable way to enjoy a short break and end the year in style.
If big parties are not for you, or if you just want to see in 2016 with that special someone, there are also smaller, luxury holiday cottages on offer from Grace Darling Holidays. What better way to have a stylish, low-key celebration than with a glass of champagne while enjoying some locally-produced food.
Waking up on January 1st with a hangover can make you want to spend New Year’s Day cuddled on the sofa with your duvet and a movie. Why not make the most of your location and head outside instead. A brisk walk along Northumberland’s gorgeous heritage coast will not only blow away the cobwebs but will also kick-start that New Year Resolution to get more active. This is guaranteed to make you feel better by the time you return to the cottage.
Celebrating New Year is a great reason to enjoy a short winter break in a holiday cottage, but you could do this anyway, not just to see the New Year in.
When there are only two of you to think about, it is easy to pack up the car and set off on a romantic break during the winter months. Northumberland is peaceful and undisturbed at this time of year so you get the opportunity to explore a great choice of locations, often with an off-peak discount.
Enjoy some quality time with a loved one before the festive holiday is over and you both have to return to work. Pour yourselves a glass of mulled wine and let the stresses of Christmas disappear as you snuggle beside an open log-burning fire or head out to a local pub for a hearty meal.
Not only are the 4* and 5* cottages offered by Grace Darling outstanding on their own, the countryside of Northumberland is arguably at its best this time of year. Frosty rural landscapes and the deserted country lanes make for a wonderful getaway and show a whole new side the North-East County. Winter is also a great time to head to Northumberland and discover the night skies in the largest International Dark Sky Park in Europe.
