Luxury Winter Holidays UK

Snuggle up with friends and family for a warm UK winter holiday break with toasted marshmallows and cups of sloe gin. Pad across heated floors to long breakfast tables for drawn out meals. Afternoons spent indoors at the luxurious Sibton Manor or seeking out the games rooms to mess around with friends.

Seasonal Winter Feasts
It’s the eating season so spend hours talking through menus with friends, or leave it to our chefs to prepare 3, maybe 4, meals a day. Pork cutlets, organic lamb, mulled wine and local cheese. Doing nothing tastes good.

Staying Indoors
Yes, there’s WIFI. And cinema rooms in the Manor and the Walled Garden. And expansive kitchens to prepare weekend feasts, and sitting rooms to sit in while someone else cooks. Cosy sofas, fireplaces, this is about as comfortable as winter can get.

Braving the Great Outdoors
Don’t let the cold keep you inside. Borrow Hunter wellies, put on a Barbour jacket and head out over the parkland for a bracing winter walk. Take a short drive to Walberswick and walk the coastline, then find The Anchor pub to warm up.

Christmas and New Year
Celebrate the family season by taking over a couple of cottages for a luxury holiday of eating, drinking and enjoying each other’s company. We’ll take the stress of cooking off your hands, with a festive feast prepared by estate cooks. Go for a low-key affair in the Farmhouse or take over the Manor for a grand meal in the dining room.

Valentine’s Day
Avoid another meal in a full restaurant and head to Hex Cottage for a winter break in nature. The warm heart of Wilderness Reserve, this thatched home-from-home is electricity-free, with a canopy over the bed and a lovers bench outside. Let’s make it just us two.
