There's still time to book a getaway for Christmas

festive imageChristmas is just round the corner away but there are still some delightful properties available which can be booked for Christmas and or New Year, offering a perfect opportunity to enjoy the festive period with friends and family.

Freedom Holiday Homes specialise in cottage holidays in the beautiful counties of Kent and Sussex and have the following properties available:

Fidelis in Herne Bay is so close to the beach you could be taking a walk along the sands on Christmas Day before heading back to the cosy cottage for dinner.  This stunning eco-build property is situated on the quiet seafront near the yacht club in Herne Bay with panoramic sea views.  There is a sunken front courtyard garden hidden away and a wonderful decked verandah and a first floor balcony – both with fabulous sea views.  Children will love being so close to the beach and there is also a safe enclosed garden to play in.

Nearby you can also visit British Wildlife Park ‘Wildwood’, historic Canterbury and Whitstable or the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate which is just along the coast.  The property has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 and is available 28 December to 4 January at a cost of £1,075 for a week including a booking fee.

Other properties still available include Mermaid’s Folly in Deal which also has 3 bedrooms and can sleep 6. This picturesque cottage will be the perfect place to spend Christmas and even includes a beautifully dressed tree, mince pies, bottle of port and plenty of wood for the open fire!

Deal has one of the few remaining piers in Kent with views of the picturesque landscape of the town with its fascinating Timeball Museum and historic hotel where Lord Nelson wooed Emma Hamilton.

The owners of the property are also making it easier for couples to book and are offering the accommodation during off peak periods with a fantastic reduction of 40% when you use just one of the 3 bedrooms which in February would take a week’s booking down to £268.  There is also a 10% reduction for winter break bookings between December and March.

Marsham’s Oast in Fairlight, Hastings is a delightful converted detached oast with 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6) which is available over Christmas and the New Year.  The property has a hot tub and wifi and is set in a wonderfully peaceful and rural location surrounded by National Trust land in an area known as ‘The Firehills’ which forms part of a country park with five hundred acres of cliff walks and unspoiled wooded countryside. The house sits in an elevated position with wonderful views over farmland to the sea. This part of the world is popular with ramblers, bird watchers, artists, cyclists and of course those who love the sea. As the crow flies, Marsham Oast is 765 yards from the coast with footpaths leading from the property to the cliffs and beach. It is located within the grounds of the owners’ ancient and beautifully restored farmhouse dating from the 1500s. There is a farm shop at the bottom of the drive which is only a three minute walk from the house.  To book the property between 20 to 27 December 2013 would be £1,058.
