A Christmas Break With Your Space

Published on December 15, 2023 by Paul

Cambridge is a gift at Christmas time. Visitors can walk down cobbled streets, under twinkling lights, as the sound of carols drifts through the air. Furthermore, choosing a Your Space apartment for your Christmas break offers all the comforts of home-away-from-home.


Top of Your List: A Christmas Break with Your Space

A serviced apartment means guests enjoy having their ‘own’ place with room for family, relaxation, and treasured traditions. Meanwhile, they can also appreciate the magic of a festive getaway in Cambridge: one of the UK’s premier city destinations. So, what would a Cambridge Christmas with Your Space look like? Read on to unwrap a perfect seasonal escape…



Bright Lights and Cosy Nights: The Dream Christmas Break

If you want a Christmas break in a city with a truly festive atmosphere, Cambridge is among the stand-out stars… See the decorations in the historic city centre. Enjoy an indulgent hot chocolate from Jack’s Gelato. Plus, be sure to look out for the iconic sight of Santa Claus punting down the River Cam! Even last-minute shopping can be pleasurable with independent shops like Ark, Podarok, and bookstore Heffers, offering gifts galore.

Moreover, wherever you travel from, you can feel at home for the holidays with a Your Space serviced apartment. Our properties are found throughout Cambridge in convenient, attractive locations. There are a range of building styles and apartment types available from elegant studio flats to two-bed, two-bath residences. Additionally, guests can book several nearby apartments so bringing the whole family together for Christmas has never been more seamless. All our apartments are furnished for optimum comfort and offer more space than comparable hotel accommodation. Therefore, guests have ample room for storing winter coats, hiding presents, and taking time to unwind as they enjoy all the sparkle of Cambridge in December.


A Christmas Eve Fit For Kings

One enchanting part of the holiday season is the anticipation that builds throughout Christmas Eve. For many in the UK, a highlight of this special day is watching Carols from Kings on BBC 2. Filmed in King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, this annual event features Christian-based music and readings.  The service opens in the same memorable way each year with a young chorister beginning the first verse of Once in Royal David’s City as an angelic solo. The broadcast is pre-recorded in early December. However, passing by King’s Chapel on Christmas Eve before watching the service in your Cambridge apartment makes this heart-warming tradition even more treasurable.

Nevertheless, perhaps carols on television aren’t everybody’s cup of tea (or cocoa). With a Your Space apartment, this is no problem as all our properties offer multiple spaces for relaxing. Even our studios have both a bed and a dedicated living area. Therefore, while some watch Carols from Kings, others can cuddle up with a favourite Christmas film. Then, everyone can gather for an evening of family fun; perhaps try charades or bring along favourite board games. Staying in a serviced apartment means individuals can take time to themselves during this busy season. However, Your Space accommodation also provides spaces designed to bring people together. So, our guests can create the perfect balance for a Christmas break to remember.



What’s the Centrepiece of Any Christmas Break?

The food of course! Whatever your tastes may be, it’s agreed that filling up on your favourites is a key part of Christmas Day. Many people also appreciate the process of preparing their festive meal. Perhaps they love cooking with family or impressing someone special with a new recipe. Choosing a Your Space apartment for a Christmas getaway means guests have a fully-equipped kitchen at their fingertips. So, whether you want to make gingerbread cookies with the children (baking trays – check!) or enjoy the popular Caribbean side dish Christmas rice (rice cooker- check!), you’ll find all the kit you need. With Your Space, the menu and, therefore, the schedule of your Christmas Day is yours to choose.

Furthermore, spending the most wonderful time of the year in Cambridge means having access to outstanding produce. Neighbourhood businesses like Cambridge Butchers Cousins and Meadows Deli offer delicious local ingredients and artisan goods for your table. Alternatively, if you do want to dine out during your Christmas getaway, there’s a glittering range of options. From British-pub Christmas lunches to global cuisine with a seasonal twist, Cambridge has a festive feast for everyone. However, be mindful that booking well ahead will be essential throughout the busy Christmas period.


Your Cambridge Christmas Break Awaits…

Beautiful buildings, old-world charm and a rich history of tradition make Cambridge the ideal setting for a festive getaway. Exploring the city from a Your Space property means guests have a place they can truly call home during their time here. Embrace a first-class destination for Christmas cheer. Plus, enjoy the flexibility and freedom of celebrating your way in a gorgeous, spacious apartment. A Christmas wish come true!
