Enjoy Plymouth This Christmas

Last week we discussed what the UK can offer as a Winter holiday destination.. still sceptical? Keep reading:

We have a range of welcoming properties ideal for winter holidays across the UK but for this blog post we thought we’d take a trip down south. The attraction of the South is synonymous with summer holidays as millions flock to the hundreds of beaches that make up the Southern Coast. But there is no reason the South cannot be enjoyed later in the year.

Plymouth, located on the south coast of Devon has plenty to do and see this Christmas, and we have multiple properties available for you to choose from. Listed below are some of the main attractions in and around the city of Plymouth this winter:

Plymouth Christmas Market - Opening on the 22nd of December until Christmas Eve the Christmas Market will contain an array of traditional European-Style market stalls. Providing shoppers with something a little different to the high street selection, the market is an excellent place to grab some gifts for your loved ones. We mustn't forget to mention the mouth watering collection of festive food and drink also available: The Christmas market is not to be missed.

Santa Fun Run - Beginning 11am on the 9th of December is the eponymous Santa Fun Run. The event hopes to attract over 1,000 santas to come along and run around a short course all while raising money for various charities and having fun. If you fancy watching the manic spectacle or even joining in yourself then follow the link!

Twinkling Twilight Lantern Parade - Something for all the family, the parade will see 300 children from schools across Plymouth join with the Stiltskin Theatre Company, to create a trail of light through the city centre. The lantern parade will be led by Santa and his reindeer, and will begin at 6pm on Thursday the 6th of December.

This is just a taste of what Plymouth can offer this Christmas. If any or all of these sound like a great way to spend the festive period then please view our list of properties to start planning your Christmas holiday today:

We Welcome the Winter

We’d like to kick off our first Travelling Suitcase blog post with a reminder to all our readers that winter is upon us (just incase you needed reminding). The days are darker, sometimes the sun appears to stay in bed for the entirety of the day. But on the bright, or slightly less dark side, we are yet to see any real signs of the annual Arctic wind and snow.

Here at Travelling Suitcase we would like to remind you that winter brings with it some excellent travel opportunities across the UK. It could even be argued that the UK’s winters offer more in the way of travel than its summers. Winter brings people together: both in a physical sense (huddling for warmth) and an emotional sense. Children will soon be leaving school and families will be travelling the length and breadth of the Isle to reunite. So why not share each other’s company in some of the warm and welcoming properties we have to offer this winter.

With our advanced search feature you can tailor your search for that winter property that will be just right for you and whoever you choose to bring along. From our facilities list we recommend the selection of a log fire. For as the classic ‘The Christmas Song’ begins “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,”. You may want to stock up on chestnuts before you arrive.

Travelling Suitcase to Launch UK's No.1 Holiday Directory

Travelling Suitcase is pleased to announce the official launch of their new website: An online holiday directory designed to benefit both the UK Holiday Maker and the UK Holiday Home Owner.  

This new interactive site provides UK Holidaymakers with a wide variety of search features to help them find the perfect UK holiday. Customers can search for property type, cost, location and many other additional criteria. If a property with a sauna near a golf course is desired, the site’s advanced property search allows users to select the facilities and nearby activities that matter to them. Each property comes complete with a detailed profile that contains in depth descriptions, stunning images and availability information.

When asked about the launch of this new holiday directory, Ashley Day, Managing Director of Travelling Suitcase said:

“Here at Travelling Suitcase we have great hopes for the new site. It offers excellent opportunities for holidaymakers to find their perfect UK holiday, the ‘staycation’ that beats travelling abroad.

Due to our experience in Lettings Management we feel confident in this new venture and as a result we are assured that each and every customer will come away with an excellent holiday experience. For those who haven’t visited our new site please review our services at
