Christmas breaks

Cathy's verdict:

Why endure the festive season alone when you could enjoy a luxury Christmas or New Year break in the UK or the Caribbean with other singles? Exclusively for solo travellers, Friendship Travel’s holidays have no single supplements whether you opt for a beach resort in Barbados or a black-tie ball at a UK hotel.

Friendship Travel says

If your idea of the perfect Christmas and New Year is some “me time” or the chance to meet new friends, check out our range of festive breaks in the UK and overseas, all of them exclusively for solo travellers.

  • no single supplements
  • singles only
  • your own double room

In the UK, we have a choice of between one and four night Christmas breaks in Middlesex, Chester,  Wroxhall Abbey in Warwickshire and Dunchurch in Warwickshire. Each is based in a four-star hotel with your own double room, and great food.

The Crowne Plaza, West Drayton in Middlesex is our new Christmas venue for 2018 and offers good food, good fun and good transport connections! With breakfast, dinner, wine and entertainment all included it’s sure to be a fun festive event. The hotel also has a pool and health club which is perfect for those who want some time to relax.

Wroxhall Abbey is an exceptional hotel dating back to the 12th century. We’ve lined up a number of social activities as well as the option to visit nearby Warwick Castle. There’s a gorgeous ESPA in the hotel – and there’s even the Grade 1 listed Wren’s Cathedral in the grounds.

In Chester, you’ll stay at the stylish ABode hotel – it’s more about kicking back and relaxing with company on tap as and when you want it and this historic city on your doorstep.

The Dunchurch Park Hotel is set in 72 acres of gardens – which are themselves Grade 2 Listed – and parkland. Bracing walks, a visit to one of the local country pubs and traditional festivities await.

For winter sun, you can head to the Caribbean where we have selected a handful of excellent four-star and five-star adult-only resorts. Departures are available for Christmas week and New Year – choose from Barbados, Cuba and The Bodyholiday at LeSPORT in St Lucia. We also have singles holidays in Cape Verde and the Canary Islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Our skiing and snowboarding holidays, for all levels of experience, are based in high-altitude resorts in Austria and France, with Christmas and New Year departures.

Bring in the New Year at our Black Tie Ball in Markyate, close to Luton and Harpenden. Stay for one or two nights and prepare to party!

We are an independent singles specialist with a tried and tested range of laid-back and relaxed holidays exclusively for solo travellers. We have won a British Travel Award in the singles holiday category every year for the past five years.

Each holiday is accompanied by a friendly, professional host. We don’t have age-specific departures but the ages are generally between 35 and 65 years (the minimum is 25 years with no upper limit).

Established in 1999, Friendship Travel is a bonded company with an ATOL licence offering full financial protection.
