Here are some of the best options for winter breaks in Suffolk this Christmas.

Festive Family Reunion

Here at Idyllic Cottages, we don’t just reserve our characterful cottages for small and intimate overnight stays. In fact, some of our larger properties and holiday cottages are among the most exquisite in terms of character and charm, combining access to expansive grounds and outside spaces with cosy bedrooms, vast living spaces, and architectural features like wooden beams and panelled walls.

For the largest groups, festive parties, and Christmas get-togethers, we recommend Boxted Hall. Our largest property situated in its own grounds, with a swimming pool onsite and bed space for up to 26 guests. Petit Hibou is another larger property which can house up to 12 guests, while The Gildhall, Higham Place Lodge, and Barhams Cartlodge all hold six guests each.

Romantic Christmas Break

If you’re planning a quiet Christmas for two, with plenty of country walks, pub stops, and time spent relaxing with a glass of wine in front of an open fire, then you couldn’t think of anywhere better than Suffolk on the East coast of England.

With endless views of rural countryside, orchards, farms, and meadows, Suffolk epitomises the heart of the British countryside – with our romantic holiday cottages for two all benefitting from secluded locations and the peace and quiet that many of us crave over the busy festive season.

Among our top recommended romantic spots for two, we include Bear Cottage with its open log burner, and Tudor Cottage which is well located for the couple who love pub afternoons.

A Magical Experience for the Kids

Christmas is a time where the magic of childhood really comes to life – with some of our holiday cottages in Suffolk lending themselves to reindeer hoofprints, half eaten mince pies, and a glass of sherry by the fireplace.

The Tryst is one of our cottages which combines old-worldly charm with a beautiful outside space, while Aspen Loft presents the perfect spot to watch out for Father Christmas through the vast windows which line the sloped roof of the bedroom.
