I am looking for somewhere to stay over Christmas (21st - 28th December roughly) for my brother, my friend and I.
We are all Australian and have never had a winter Christmas before so we would like somewhere it is going to snow. We would love to go to Scotland or the Lakes District. We will be picking up a car so that we can drive.
We don't want to stay in any hotels/lodges or anything like that, we would like to stay in a self catering cottage with a fire so that we can cook Christmas day. We also don't want to stay right in the centre of a big town or city, we'd like to be in a nice quiet town, something quaint and pretty but also accessible to other areas by car.
Any help relating to towns or accommodation would be appreciated, thanks!
