Holiday cottages in the Isle of Man

Isle of Man Staycations

Christmas Staycations

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! So the song goes and for many of us, Christmas truly is wonderful. A celebration which bookends the year. When families are brought together and children’s faces beam brighter than festive lights; a small window to re-set and ponder upon the year as its candle dims; where revelry and reflection meet. And yet, it can also be an incredibly stressful time that leaves you craving for a getaway.


Whether your Christmas entails slaving away in the kitchen like a maniacal Gordon Ramsay or frantically wrapping Nan’s Cliff Richard calendar, it is surely tempting to try something new…something different. 

A top quality home away from home. Where the mulled wine can still flow and the chestnuts can still roast. But this time, you’ve treated yourself to a Christmas staycation. Wake up on Christmas morning to stunning views of the Irish Sea in the snug comfort of a winter cottage. Or walk off that second helping of Christmas pud with a ramble in the lush Manx forest. Can you picture it? Stockings filled to the brim nestled neatly by a roaring fire, the wide-eyed kids tearing open their presents, endless photos and videos taken by you in the hope of capturing and preserving some of the magic in their eyes. It’s a treat for the whole family to enjoy.


And after everything 2020 has thrown at us, don’t you deserve this indulgence?  
Let Island Escapes transport you to a magical destination and have yourself a very merry Christmas.
