Embrace Winter with These Luxury Getaways


Baby, it’s cold outside. Winter has made its chilly presence felt, so it’s time to get cosy.

Think roasted marshmallows, fuzzy slippers, knitted beanies and glasses of your favourite red wine. Whether you’re the ski-bunny type who hits the slopes every year, or someone who loves pulling on a woolly jumper and settling down in front of the fireplace for a Netflix marathon, winter isn’t all bad. Especially when it includes hightailing it on a luxurious winter getaway.

Even if you aren’t winter’s biggest fan, you’ll still find reasons to love a winter escape. For one, who doesn’t love a mini-break? Plus you also have the promise of cranking the heating, tucking into delicious slow-cooked meals, soaking into a hot tub and spending time with friends or family. You don’t even have to venture far past the front door if you don’t want to. For those that do love the chill, there is the lure of crisp-air walks, exploring winter festivals and wrapping glove-clad hands around steaming cups of hot chocolate. Put simply, no matter if you love or hate the cold weather, the winter getaway is something everyone can get behind.

But where do you find accommodation that delivers the above? Right. Here. This Winter Getaways collection is a curated selection of 18 escapes that are heavy on the cosy feels and perfect for any cold-weather retreat. With boutique hideaways fit for families, couples and travelling groups, nobody has to miss out on a winter getaway this year. A handful of these boltholes will even accommodate furry Fido, too. There are cottages with crackling fireplaces and comfortable couches; coastal pads with water views; and secluded dens if you want to heat things up with your significant other. Some stays have even put forward exclusive special offers to make the temptation of a winter getaway too hard to pass up.
