Blackdown Luxury Lettings Blog, stay up to date with the latest news and offers


Well, here we are, the festive season is upon and so it’s time for us to say Happy Christmas from us to you. At the time of writing there are mumbles of a brief lockdown looming, but for now we can at least enjoy Christmas with our loved ones – and that’s something to be very grateful for, when you look back at what last year was like.

We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to our luxury large group holiday houses for Christmas; people who are excited about spending time in a world of their own with friends and family – and let it be so. That’s exactly what we should all be doing this year and every Christmas; presents around the tree, fairy lights twinkling, Christmas jumpers and Santa hats on, all gathering round the table for a festive feast. Forget the news, ignore the papers, just be together and be happy.

Our large group accommodation with pools and hot tubs was snapped up quickly this year and with holidays in the UK being more popular than ever now, if you want to spend Christmas 2022 in a large holiday house for 10-14 guests, you’d be wise to book soon. Herons Bank sleeps 14 and has an amazing private spa hall with a pool and hot tub, a games room, year round BBQ lodge and play area; even if it snows there’s plenty to keep you happy.

Wayside sleeps 13 and has a covered pool, hot tub, sauna, BBQ lodge and play area, so again, heaps to keep you entertained no matter what the weather’s doing. Foxhill Lodge sleeps 10 and is wonderfully homely with professionally designed interiors, exclusive use of a pool, a hot tub, BBQ lodge and play area. A festive stay with Blackdown Luxury Lettings is a Christmas in the country with all the conveniences of modern life and a whole lot more besides.

Next year we’ll be adding The Cedars to our portfolio of luxury large group holiday houses in Devon, and we can’t wait! This is a light and spacious contemporary holiday home with high end fixtures and fittings and a stunning location in the Blackdown Hills; there’s snooze space for up to 12 guests, and for year round use, a swim spa, BBQ lodge and pizza oven. Available from Easter 2022, we’ve already got several bookings for this beauty, so take a look and if you’d like to spend next Christmas there, book now before someone else does!


In the meantime, make the most of the festivities before we say goodbye to 2021. Shut the world outside, play music, eat good food, enjoy the company of the people who mean the most to you. Happy Christmas from us to you, make it a big fat one to remember ❤️
