New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to be a dilemma!

13 Dec 2012

happy-new-year-graphics-clock_optNew Year’s Eve.  Possibly the most dreaded night of the year.  Overhyped, overpriced New Year ’s Eve parties….doomed to be a massive anti-climax.  Think again!  2012, what a year it has been!  The Golden Jubilee, the Olympics and Paralympics and most importantly announcement of the tiny pitter patter of Royal feet (Kate we have a fantastic Butler in the Buff lined up for your baby shower, Pippa Middleton if you’re reading this give us a call!)  Don’t end 2012 on a bum note (unless it’s a bum of a gorgeous Butler in the Buff); make your New Year’s Eve party celebrations the icing on the cake!

What to do for New Year’s Eve in Scotland

happy-new-year-edinburgh1_optWe have some great New Year’s party ideas for you… Why not see where it all began and head up to Scotland, the home of the New Year’s Eve party.  If you can’t beat them then why not join them for a four day Hogmanay extravaganza in Edinburgh!  Whether you fancy dancing in the streets, treating your ears to the finest Mozart or want to Highland Fling your way into 2013. The Scots have something for everyone.

New Year’s Eve party ideas in the North of England

Allendale Tar Barrel ProcessionLiking the idea of a traditional New Year but Scotland seem too far away??  Try the Allendale Tar Bar’l Ceremony in Northumberland.  Local men dressed in costume carrying barrels of flaming tar on their heads, what more could you want?  How many people will be able to say they ended the year with a party ritual from the Dark Ages?

New Year's Eve Newquay Fancy DressIdea of costumes and fancy dress appeal but not overly excited by the barrels of tar??  Then venture down to Cornwall’s liveliest town Newquay for its New Year’s Eve Fancy Dress Carnival.  Walk, skip or dance through the streets in your best fancy dress as the town comes alive with New Year fever.  Top off your Cornish experience by taking part in the Newquay New Year’s Day Fundraising Dip.  All for a good cause, and a great way to clear the 2012 cobwebs away!

Where to see the best fireworks this New Year’s Eve

big_ben_optIf all you want for New Year is fireworks you are in luck.  With firework displays across the country, from Birmingham to Manchester it’ll be hard not to find one.  If you’re a real firework fanatic travel to London.  From the riverbanks of the Thames watch our most iconic landmarks lit up by a stunning show of light and colour!


Where to hire a cottage for this New Year’s Eve party

If the thought of New Year’s Eve is still sending you into a spin why not gather a few friends together and hire a cottage in the country; Dorset, the Cotswolds, Devon, Cornwall, Yorkshire Dale, the Peak District and East Anglia all offer great cottages for weekend or weekly hire. Have a look on Acacia Cottages or Dorset Country Holidays for ideas.  It can be as riotous or relaxed as you want.  Quiet dinner party or a thrilling murder mystery party.  A DIY New Year could be the perfect solution.

Finish 2012 in style or start 2013 as you mean to go on by hiring a gorgeous Butler in the Buff!!  Quiet night in or party for the whole neighbourhood, a handsome Butler or two can make your festivities go off with a real bang!!  Get a quote here.
