Twixmas Breaks in the UK

The perfect interlude break between Christmas and New Year

What is a twixmas break?

Twixmas is the time between Christmas and New Year, from December 27th to December 30th, that we all spend curled up on the sofa, watching The Sound Of Music (for the hundredth time) and eating our weight in Christmas chocolate.

It's also the perfect time to get away for a few days, get some fresh air in your lungs and enjoy the best the UK's national parks have to offer. It's the best time to get together with friends & family in a safe & sound setting in your own cottage, apartment or lodge and let us do the cooking!

No need to use your annual leave!


Twixmas is the ideal time to book a family break as there is no need to use your holiday allowance.

You are either on holiday already because you've booked the days off to spend with friends, family and loved ones; your office is closed for the festive period or you've got extra bank holidays to compensate for boxing day being on a Saturday.

Sometimes though you have to work through the festive period and if you are able to work from home, what better way than in a home from home at Macdonald Resorts - whats more with free WiFi when you book direct there's no excuse not to take the chance for a change of scenery.

The only question is...where to?

Now you've decided that a twixmas break is perfect for spending some quality time with the family the decision of where to go is all yours.

Our one, two and three bed self-catering accomodation is the ideal place to spend the festive break.  A true home from home, our properites have their own fully-equipped kitchens and dining areas.

Set in the UK's national parks from the Cairngorms to the New Forest the only question left is - where to?
