Escape the city and head to the stunning Cotswolds for a few nights.

Stay in the West Wing of the gorgeous Glenfeadon house! This mansion on the beach (opens in new tab) sleeps six so it's great if you are a larger group, and has plenty of living space, plus a huge kitchen to cater for everyone.

The temperatures might be slightly cooler up in Scotland, but when you could stay in a four poster bed in an actual castle, what's a few degrees, hey? A stay in this mini castle (opens in new tab) means a room (with ensuite) in the castle's turret; there's some amazing walking to be had in the area and it is just a 20 minute drive to the Highlands for more challenging hikes. It's located in a small village that has plenty of amenities, plus a train station so if you are looking for a place you can access via public transport this would be perfect.
Price: £71 per night

How to become an Airbnb host
Let’s be honest. Holiday travel can be crowded, stressful, and most of all expensive. But you could possibly earn some of that money back with Airbnb. While you’re travelling out of town to visit relatives and friends, why not rent your empty room or home and maybe earn some extra money for the holidays?
Becoming an Airbnb host (opens in new tab) is easy and creating a listing is always free. You’ll have the support of fellow hosts and Airbnb’s world-class customer service department to answer your questions along with lots of other tools to help you be successful. Airbnb may even cover your property up to a million dollars per stay in the unlikely event that an incident occurs. Airbnb gives you a chance to earn extra money by putting your unoccupied space to work this holiday season.
