Friends getting together before the Christmas madness!

Before we all start slightly hyperventilating trying to get Christmas organised, a super chilled weekend in the countryside might be the antidote to a more serene time.

Winchester Christmas market is only 20 minutes from Wallops Wood

Friends getting together

This is the perfect time of year to gather a bunch of friends and enjoy a weekend away.

You know, those friends you went to university with, you were super closed to and burnt the midnight oil with, revising those exams. The friends you shared all your hopes and dreams with, enjoyed nights out with. The ones that you might not talk to everyday but when you do hook up on the phone, it’s like time was just yesterday, time didn’t speed up passed you. It’s like nothing has changed.

Friends catching up last summer at Wallops Wood Cottages

After such intense precious years, you all went your separate ways into new jobs, new relationships, kids, mortgages….. You keep in touch via messenger, Facebook, and the Gram, but somehow, face to face just never happens. The “we must get together…” that we all utter each year, takes us into yet another year of no commitment.

We have a few free cottages for a short break that you could enjoy resting and relaxing at just before that Christmas madness and rush begins.

Hedgehunter cottage sleeps 8 people perfect for a group get together and Skeldale a self contained large cottage, is also amazing to enjoy each other’s company. This cottage has its own enclosed spacious garden and views to die for. Only 20-25 mins from Winchester, Portsmouth, Southampton.

Sundew Cottage which has three bedrooms and can sleep 6 people as well as Teal our accessible cottage (also sleeps 6 people) also have availability before Christmas. All cottages have en suite bathrooms (not Skeldale), dogs are of course welcome and they are all underfloor heated with gorgeous wood burners! Only 1 hour from West London, down the M3 or A3, the short drive takes you to one of the most beautiful part of the South Downs national Park.

Bubbling hot tubs with a view

The cottages that face South over the Meon Valley have stunning views – sometimes all the way to the Isle of Wight and the Solent. The one thing guests all talk about is the beautiful sunsets that grace our valley most evenings.

Our indoor heated pool is also a huge draw for our guests and you can either keep your fitness levels up or swim at your leisure. You don’t even have to stop chatting with your lovely friends! The jacuzzi is next to the pool, perfect for a get together.

So getting together with friends before Christmas is almost like an insurance against the Christmas melt down that usually hits households on the 25th of December! The perfect pre-Christmas rest and relaxation.
