Festive Getaways with Forgotten Houses

There is nothing better than getting away from the dark mornings and drizzly days to warm sunny climates for a winter getaway. However if dusting off the summer wardrobe, a 15 hour flight, navigating busy holiday airports and a large dent in the Christmas fund isn’t your idea of festive fun why not consider a holiday to Cornwall? Deserted beaches, beautiful scenery and cosy pubs await those needing a getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Forgotten Houses holiday homes are ideal for large family celebrations, time away with friends or a romantic retreat over the festive period; you can even take the dog! Enjoy walking in a winter countryside, warming fingers and toes by the log burner or cooking up a storm in one of our many lovely country kitchens.

To tempt you down to the west country for a winter retreat filled with food, wellies and cosy knits here are some special offers we have available over the next couple of months.
