Christmas and New Year at StarBed Hideaways

Sometimes “just the two of you” is all that is required, taking time out to indulge and relax over the festive season. With a scrumptious supply of delicious treats, perfect for sharing, from chocolates to cheese, prosecco to pate and of course mulled wine and mince pies we have selected a fabulous array of tasty treats which will be stowed in your Hideaway on arrival.

Add to that the smallest Christmas Tree, a bath big enough for two, a roaring log fire, a reindeer! And snow – ok we may not be able to manage the snow, but we do provide you with your very own local festive guide of all the local celebrations, where to book for Christmas lunch – in the event you are not lounging in the bath eating nibbles, where you can listen to or join in with carols, take in a bracing walk, stroll to the pub or take advantage of our “Lazy Day” package and order in!

We are having a rather super time sampling all the delights we will be popping into our Hideaways for the Christmas and New Year packages – photos to follow but given we had some many requests to open up the diary we thought we had better do just that! Book now for your indulgent, secluded festive break.
