There are so many getaways waiting for you in West Lothian...
January can be a tough month. It can be difficult to bounce back from a busy Christmas; everyone’s eaten too much and pay day seems like a lifetime away! But West Lothian is host to an abundance of sanctuaries to help you escape the ‘January Blues’ and make these remaining dreary winter months feel like a breeze, the perfect start to 2018! There’s something for everyone, from families to groups of friends and from couples to solo travellers – we’ve got you covered at Visit West Lothian.
A weekend getaway at Williamscraig Holiday Cottages would make for the perfect break, and they have a vast selection of cottages and deals to choose from. One massive asset to the cottages, especially in the colder months, is the hot tubs! This is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery that is so prominent at Williamscraig cottages whilst still being lovely and snug, we would highly recommend taking advantage of this fantastic feature this winter!
Beecraigs Little Lodges provide a cozy, dry option for those hoping to get a little closer to nature. Formally known as “glamping”, these fully insulated cabins situated in the heart of Beecraigs Country Park allow guests to enjoy all the fun and adventure of regular camping – without the shivery nights! Each Little Lodge can house up to four guests (and a maximum of one dog!) and comes equipped with a kettle, radio, heating, electricity and sockets for charging all of your electrical devices during your stay. With beautiful panoramic views across West Lothian, this would be the perfect winter trip for our more outdoorsy visitors who are seeking adventure and the opportunity to explore.
Set across 22 acres of stunning woodland in a secluded location just beside Livingston, Macdonald Houston Hotel is the perfect destination for a winter retreat. Here guests can enjoy a peaceful visit to the tranquil grounds of Houston House, enjoy a hot drink by the roaring fire or a delicious meal in the award-winning restaurant, or extend your stay and book a room, allowing you to enjoy multiple features of the hotel all in one go such as the Vital Health Club and Spa, indoor pool and Technogym or even just to marvel at the beauty of this historic building that has been here since the 16th Century.
West Lothian has an array of cozy cafés peppered around its towns and villages such as Linlithgow, Bathgate, Livingston and many more, for those who are just seeking a quiet, more local setting to enjoy a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
However you decide to spend the beginning of a great new year, spend it in West Lothian!
