With Christmas now just around the corner you will want to arrange something special for you and the family to do together over the festive period, as this is what this time is all about. You will want to spend some quality time together and find some fun activities to do, as well as relax and enjoy some good food and drink. One great idea over the festive period is to go on a short break, as this does not have to cause too much stress and you can go for just a few days. One of the best places to visit is the West Country, as here there all kinds of great things to see and do, and lots of little towns and villages to explore.
You will want to stay in a self catering cottage, as this way you can make it feel like home after you come back from a days exploring. There is a good chance you will spend a fair amount of time just lounging around the cottage and playing some board games, but the fact that you are on a break away will make it that little bit more special. When you do head out to Devon, Cornwall, Somerset or Dorset you can go on all kinds of great walks and take in the stunning scenery that you find down here. You will also find plenty of cosy pubs and restaurants on your walks too, so you can make a real day of it.
Finding Dog Friendly Cottages
If you have a dog then it would be a shame to leave them at home when you are going on all these walks, but thankfully you can find dog friendly holiday cottages so that you can bring your beloved pet along. The West Country is a brilliant place to take your dog, and they are sure to enjoy it as much as you do. You can easily find the best dog friendly cottages by visiting holiday cottage comparison sites, like www.helpfulholidays.com, and visiting these sites allows you to easily view and compare on the best cottages in the area.
Taking a short break this over the festive spirit will really help you to bond and connect with the family over this special time, and it will also be great fun too with so much fun to be had here.
