Most people do not have homes large enough when it comes to hosting Christmas or New Year get-togethers. Booking a self catering house or cottage allows everyone to be together and yet have enough space for a harmonious holiday. A good proportion of holiday rentals owners will have their houses and cottages decorated for the festive period so that all you need to do is to arrive and purchase the food and drink you will need for your New Year celebrations.

New Year’s Eve traditions are as ancient as the land itself. On the wind-swept northeast coast of Scotland is a town called Stonehaven. On New Year’s Eve people come from around the globe to see the ancient fireball procession. The atmosphere is alive with the site of the swinging flames and the sound of pipes and drums.
Allendale, in Northumbria, also has a fiery New Year’s Eve festival. At midnight, men bearing burning barrels parade through the town. The crowd follows the men to the Baal fire and the party begins.
