You may have come across hygge this winter. Pronounced hoo-ga, it’s a Danish lifestyle concept for the long dark winters, based around cosy ideals of food, friends and family and the simple things in life. So why not try your own hygge holiday this winter with two extra free nights from January through to March (excluding February half term).
