Sometimes it is very nice to celebrate Christmas in a different location and where more festive than in a log cabin in a stunning rural location.
Log cabins are always cosy, even if it is crisp and white underfoot outside. Head north for a snowy Christmas. Anywhere with snow capped hills will ensure traditional Christmas scenery. How about a log cabin holiday in the Lake District or Northumberland?
Go north to Cumbria, Yorkshire, Northumberland or even Scotland for that snowy Christmas holiday in a log cabin or pine lodge. Any northern location or hilly area is more likely to have snow at the end of December. Wrap up warm and enjoy the snow capped scenery.
Dogs also enjoy Christmas and would appreciate a holiday in a warm log cabin with their family.
Most people buy a gift for their pet and include them in their celebrations.
Dogs would enjoy walks in a new environment with lots of new and interesting scents. Give everyone a treat this Christmas with a pet-friendly log cabin holiday.
Scotland is an excellent holiday destination for Christmas. It will almost definitely be colder in Scotland with a higher chance of snow than in the south of Britain. Scotland's major cities will be dressed for the occasion, full of sparkling lights and Christmas displays.
Both Glasgow and Edinburgh city centres have Christmas trees and festive spirit galore.
Out in the countryside, pine forests look magnificent when their branches are laden with a layer of snow. There are ski slopes near Aviemore and the Lecht - it's a sport that will soon make you feel very warm. Take the children sledging.
One of the nicest places to stay is in a pine lodge on the shores of a loch, the scenery will be spectacular and plenty of small slopes to run down on sledges with the children.
