For some, a house full of people is an integral part of the Christmas holidays. For others however, the responsibility of hosting a hoard of relatives is hardly their idea of a Merry Christmas! As our last post about international marmalade reminds us, there’s a whole world out there, so on the #8thDayOfMarmalade we’re championing people who are looking to escape this year for a proper Christmas holiday. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to take the family for something a bit different this December, or if your ideal Christmas is a romantic getaway for two, we’re behind you all the way.


Our Awards sponsors eviivo help the best independent hotels, guest houses and B&Bs get online and make finding the perfect holiday location easy.
