Where will you and your family go this Christmas?

We all know Christmas is a time for family, but uniting  the whole extended family in the same place can often be a difficult job.  Do you go to them or do they come to you? Where will they all fit?  Do you book a table and have dinner out (which can be very expensive) or do you opt for the traditional Christmas dinner at home? Then there is the age old problem of who is going to drive home. Some of your guests will have to  miss out on the festive tipple if they are on driving duty.

One obvious solution is to find some Christmas accommodation. Increasingly many families are turning to hostels and bunkhouses for great value accommodation at Christmas time. The hostels and bunkhouses on the map above are all open at Christmas and have room for everyone with self catering facilities and large dining and sitting rooms.

If you hire the whole hostel or bunkhouse (which is what we would recommend), you will have all the facilities to yourself.  The hostel or bunkhouse becomes yours for the Christmas period, a proper  home from home, with space for all the generations.  What fun it will be to wake up on Christmas morning all together, sharing the fun and laughter from the very start of the day. Preparations for the big Christmas meal can be shared among everyone with no one person being the host and feeling responsible for the day.

You will find them all over the country, from the far north of Scotland and the Scottish Isles to Lands End and the Scilly Isles.  From rugged coastal locations to hostels perched on mountain sides, from vibrant city centre hostels and bunkhouses to accommodation among rolling hills and quaint market towns. Wherever you fancy spending your Christmas you should fine a hostel or bunkhouse nearby. Have a look at the map above to see for  yourself where the independent hostels and bunkhouses open at Christmas are located.

All the hostels and bunkhouses which are open this Christmas  have self catering facilities.  They invariably will have large dining tables, ideal or seating the whole family for the big Christmas dinner, and a kitchen designed for catering for large numbers. (As each hostel is unique, always be sure to check that their facilities are adequate for your group when you book).  The  hostels’ self catering facilities make sharing all the food preparation tasks between family members really easy. Everyone from young to old will have the opportunity to contribute.  Picture yourselves on Christmas Eve, sitting around the big table.  Everyone peeling the vegetables with festive music playing in the background. It may well be worth packing a few extra vegetable peelers. You wouldn’t want to leave anyone without a job!

Where will we all sleep?

Sleeping accommodation in independent hostels and bunkhouses is generally in bunk beds.  Many hostels also have private rooms with standard beds which are ideal for the older generation.  What’ s more the bunk beds are often in normal sized bedrooms, with a choice of  2, 4 or 6 bunks per room quite usual.  This is ideal for a gatherings of families, when each family can have their own bedroom whist sharing the dining and lounging areas to celebrate together.  Or you can allocate rooms  just for the children.  What fun to have a room full of bunks for all the children in your party.  After all no one needs to go to bed early at Christmas!  As always, you are advised to check the facilities; the number and arrangement of the beds with the individual hostels and bunkhouses before you book.

How much will it cost?

The costs of renting a whole bunkhouse or hostel for your Christmas holiday are very low, especially if you rent an ideal sized hostel or bunkhouse for your family group.  Our range of hostels and bunkhouses can offer you everything from basic accommodation if that’s what you want, to luxury bunkhouses where there is no necessity to compromise on comfort.  Log burners are a  common feature.  They provide a lovely, festive focal point in the shared living space.  Often luxury accommodation is provided cheaply simply because there are more people sleeping in each bedroom.
