After the excitement of Christmas has passed once again, it’s time to look forward to New Year’s Eve. It’s hard to believe but another year is almost over and it’s time to say goodbye to 2011 and look ahead to what 2012 might bring. The first thing to do of course is to think about where you want to spend New Year’s Eve. And what better place could there be than the Cotswolds?

If you are spending Christmas running around seeing all your family and friends it could be the perfect antidote to go away with your partner for New Year’s Eve. You’ll have to be quick though – bookings for Cotswolds country cottages and similar places are usually very busy at this time of year. However with the Cotswolds being such a big place, you might still find a last minute booking somewhere in the region.

The best thing to do is to consider where you would most like to stay and which kind of property you would like to stay in. New Year’s Eve means different things to different people. For example you might think about going to a party with everyone you know. Alternatively there could be nothing better or more desirable than spending a nice quiet night in with your partner, enjoying a romantic meal together and a glass of champagne at midnight. Whatever you would rather do, you can use the ideas to influence what you do this New Year’s Eve.

Think about staying in hotels if you want to enjoy a busy and vibrant evening with other people. But if you want that romantic feel to the New Year, try and look for a romantic cottage somewhere in the Cotswolds that will enable you both to get away from it all for a night or two. Just imagine being able to wake up together on the first day of 2012 and go for an invigorating walk to see in the New Year. You can’t do better than to wander across the fields and countryside of the Cotswolds to enjoy what it has to offer you.

This is by far the best way to enjoy the best of the Cotswolds at any time of the year. In fact if you can get a last minute booking for New Year’s Eve, it might inspire you to book a longer holiday in the Cotswolds during 2012 as well. There is so much to see and do here that you can easily spend a week or even two enjoying everything it has to offer. Get to know the area a bit better by checking out an online map first, so you can see which locations might inspire you the most.

Whatever you decide to do this New Year’s Eve, look to the future – there might just be a trip to the Cotswolds coming up for you to enjoy. Check out just some of the amazing places it has to offer and book a trip here very soon. Happy New Year!
