Cosy Coastal Christmas Breaks

By Kelly McAlpine  

Christmas on an exotic island; the sun beating down on you, sand between your toes and a fruit cocktail rather than a mulled wine in hand. It sounds heavenly…or does it?  

What happens when you want to rustle up a cold turkey sandwich or tune into the Coronation Street special while finishing off the trifle?  

Many families want to get away from it all over Christmas but are reluctant because they don’t want to miss out on the traditions they have built up over the years.  

But what if was possible to do both?  

At Dalriada Luxury Lodges, everything is possible! You can de-stress and unwind with a change of scene, but as our lodges are a home away from home it’s just like being at, well, home…  

Want to gather round the tree for the opening of the presents? We’re adding a small but perfectly formed tree to our lodges for the festive period.  

Fancy a traditional turkey but don’t want to hoof it out to a hotel or restaurant for the afternoon? Well, just pop the bird in the oven – all the kitchens are fitted out to a very high spec.  

What about cabin fever? If you want to ditch the television in favour of the fresh air, we’ve got fantastic walks on our doorstep and plenty of storage for bikes, golf clubs and winter sports equipment.  

You’ll be able to Skype and Facetime family members thanks to our high-speed WiFi and the privacy of our lodges means you don’t have to get out of your PJs if you don’t want to.  

Flying reindeer might be a bit of a stretch, but you might just spot some members of the resident colony of bottlenose dolphins when sitting out on your lodge’s private decking, admiring the wintry seaside views.  

If you’ve placed yourself well and truly on Santa’s nice list this year, why not treat yourself to a festive break at Dalriada Luxury Lodges – a gift from our family to yours.
