Get cosy in a cozy hotel in the Yorkshire Dales

1/4

The Traddock is a family-run hotel near Settle. It is surrounded by the epic scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, making it perfect for a spot of cosy escapism. There are 12 luxurious rooms within the Georgian manor, all of which are en-suite.

You’ll find soft, fluffy towels and Molton Brown toiletries awaiting you, ready to help you relax. Some rooms even have freestanding baths in the main room for that added special touch.

The walled garden is very well kept throughout the year, so you can take a stroll or sit out on the patio if the weather is kind. If it’s chillier out, snuggle up in front of a real fire in one of the hotel’s guest lounges.

You’ll warm up in no time!

Nestle down in a charming log cabin in Scotland

1/4

Feel completely unbothered by the world with a stay in this authentic log cabin in a Scottish National Park. It is positioned within a peaceful woodland next to a small burn in Taynuilt, overlooking sunny, open meadows and the dramatic Loch Awe. This makes it a great base for exploring the west coast, Argyll and local lochs.

Inside, you’ll find an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room with a vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove, three bedrooms and a shower room. Although the cabin looks like it’s made entirely out of wood, it’s actually lined, double glazed, highly insulated and heated; it is both characterful and comfortable. If you fancy an extra luxury, have a dip in the hot tub (this carries an additional fee but is worth it).

Experience true comfort in the Cotswolds

1/4

Treat yourself to a few nights in Dormy House, a converted 17th century Cotswolds farmhouse in Broadway – a quaint, chocolate box village. Each guestroom is individually decorated to honour the craftsmanship and traditional features of the building while ensuring a luxurious and comfortable stay. You can even opt for a room with a four-poster bed if you want an extra slice of historical authenticity.

Elsewhere in the hotel, you’ll find inviting, low-lit nooks with toasty fireplaces and sofas, a restaurant offering traditional British dishes cooked using local ingredients and a lounge-style bar. Outside, entertain yourself with a game on the putting green or the croquet lawn, or have a look at the flowers in the private landscaped garden – complete with a tree swing.

Take time out in a quaint and secluded cottage near Liverpool

Feel right at home in Sophie’s Retreat, a quiet, secluded cottage. It’s a traditional Oxton cottage: framed by plants, rustic in its design, set on a narrow countryside lane. The rooms are decorated with warm coloured fabrics and solid wood furniture, a nod to the romantic rural setting. In the living room, there’s a log burner that can pack out the heat to warm hearts and hands when the weather’s cold. There’s also an indoor private hot tub that’s free to use.

The cottage is well placed for day trips to the local beaches and hills or short walks to the village pubs and shops. The Mersey Ferry is only four miles away, which takes you to Albert Dock, right in the centre of Liverpool.

Sleep in one of London's most luxurious hotels

1/4

City centre hotels don’t come much more stately than The Stafford. Located in historic St. James’s Mayfair, The Stafford is literally in the land of London luxury. It is a fine cluster of 17th-century buildings and a former carriage house, with rooms divided across four locations within the hotel: the Main House, the Mews Suites, the Carriage House and the Gatehouse. In all of the rooms and suites, you’ll find unique decor, fine artwork, luxe fabrics and a generous smattering of log fires.

Its location is ideal for a night of West End theatre or dining with the stars, though the on-site fine-dining restaurant and American-inspired cocktail bar with an outdoor courtyard might tempt you to stay inside.
