The best spots in the UK that will help you escape those January blues

Once the excessive drinking, partying and gluttony of December is all over, January is widely regarded as the gloomiest month of the year…but what if we could change all that? Whisk yourself away to one of our top festive destinations this Winter, oust those January blues and start your year off right!

Sykes Holiday Cottages

Sykes Holiday has over 12,000 cottages available to rent across the UK and Ireland, meaning that we have no reason to accept that dreaded January melancholy. With competitive prices and special offers in abundance, you won’t have to worry about the feeling the pinch at the beginning of the year either. Instead, you can cosy up by the fire, or treat yourself to a relaxing glass of wine in the hot tub! Hobbits Landing log cabin cottage in the Isle of Wight is a particular star of the show, situated beside a beautifully serene lake, offering the perfect excuse to reconnect with your inner nature-lover and hide away from hectic city life.

Forest Holidays

Is there anything more festive than the image of snuggling up in a log cabin buried within a forest? With almost 600 cabins in 10 forest locations across the UK, Forest Holidays offer the ideal alternative January getaway. With detailed emphasis on supporting forests, local tourism and local communities, your escape to the country really will be completely guilt free. The Golden Oak Treehouse in Blackwood Forest, with its fairy-tale style master bedroom across a rope bridge and option of in-cabin spa treatments or your own personal chef, provides heaps of winter luxury.

Unique Home Stays

Unique Home Stays offers something extra special; the opportunity to escape to a ready-made home. Guests are given the opportunity to experience intimate and deluxe hospitality in extraordinary country and coastal locations. Alongside first-rate service and comfort, guests are greeted by hosts on arrival, who help you get acquainted, before leaving you to enjoy your indulgent break away. Unique Home Stays has a great portfolio, boasting some of the finest private homes in the world. With homes such as Midsummer Wood in the Cotswolds representing everything you could wish for in an extravagant Winter retreat. Think; the quaint English cottage in The Holiday, but surrounded by 11 acres of Eden-esque grounds and an indoor swimming pool…

Canopy and stars

With the aim to inspire people to connect with nature through meaningful experiences, Canopy and Stars provides a new experience as well as a getaway. From snug yurts, to cosy canal boats, you are encouraged to unleash your inner child and embrace the great outdoors this Winter.

The House-Box at Kinton Quarry is an outstanding handcrafted haven, that is worth noting.
