Does the thought of spending Christmas at home fill you with dread? Perhaps the same people, in the same house and the same festive traditions no longer appeal, and you’d relish a change of venue.

There’s always the option of a hotel, but you can forget about opening Christmas presents around the tree in your pyjamas, or cooking your own Christmas dinner with a glass of wine in hand, all of which is part of the festive fun.
