January – the month to cosy up

January is the perfect time to detox and recharge your batteries.


This is the ideal opportunity to pack the bags and head off to a cottage in the countryside or a bolthole by the beach.  The prices are the lowest they will be and it’s a great hunkering down time, after all that socialising and partying over Christmas and New Year.  We’ve got some wonderful #cosyup cottages, perfect for the two of you and a few friends craving fresh air and long walks.

Searsons, Ipswich, Suffolk sleeps 18| From £1500

With shorter days, it’s the best feeling in the world (after a scrumptious Ella type breakfast) to head off along the Cornish coast or the South Downs, the coastal path along the Isle of Wight or the heart of Cotswold country, and revel in the views, and you know what’s even better, you get the whole place to yourself.


Roaring fires in the local pub, make lunch easy, lots are pet friendly too, so you can cosy up and watch the flames flicker, feeling warm and rosy after a good hike.

Pound Cottage, Langport, Somerset sleeps 5| from £1106
