Five hygge inspired self-catering holidays for winter


Get cosy by a log fire and watch the waves roll in.

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).

Enjoy life’s (and Cornwall's) simple pleasures this winter with our top five properties for a hygge holiday.

Pilots Cottage, Mousehole

Sleeps 5

Nestled in the heart of Mousehole rests a 175-year-old fisherman’s cottage which has been sympathetically renovated to preserve the building’s original features.

This Grade II listed home is called Pilots Cottage and is the perfect place for a hygge escape. Surround by narrow, cobbled streets and yellow lichened houses, the cosy cottage offers a peaceful setting to read a good book and relax.

Oakfield, Crackington Haven

Sleeps 6

Perched high on the side of a valley in the pretty hamlet of Rosecare, Oakfield is an idyllic hygge retreat for those looking to explore the north Cornwall coast.

Wrap up warm with a woolly hat and scarf as you venture out into the wild countryside. On your walk, spot rabbits frolicking in the grass and birds foraging in the hedgerows.

Warm up by the log fire with your favourite drink and watch the great outdoors from the comfort of the sofa.
