Tis the season …




This Christmas, instead of the usual last minute rushes and supermarket stresses, why not put your feet up, tuck into some hearty feasts and snuggle up in our 18th century Georgian country mansion? We’re opening the estate to guests for the first time ever, so you can experience a true Christmas in the countryside and let us worry about the rest.

Arrive on Christmas eve to a festive afternoon tea waiting for you (and few glasses of mulled wine). Once the family is checked in, how about does a long soak in the tub sound? Glass of fizz in the bath did you say? Don’t mind if I do…

Spend the afternoon as you please, and in the evening, we’ll be walking to the Village Church for Midnight Mass. On your return, we’ll have hot coco and something a little stronger for the grown ups waiting by the fire.

On Christmas morning, we’ll be serving a true Yorkshire breakfast in the dining room, with plenty of fizz – this is December 25th after all. Once the last gift has been opened, your Christmas lunch will be ready. Using the estate’s family recipes, you and the family can tuck into a winter feast – just don’t forget the lashings of gravy and heaps of pigs-in-blankets (we’re not counting).

Once lunch comes to an end, how does an evening playing board games by the fire sound?

Boxing Day is all yours, you can get wrapped up for a brisk morning walk or treat yourself to a massage. Our suggestion? A good old book and a glass of red by the fire.

So, this Christmas, forgot about trying please everyone (and his dog), and make it all about you and your family, with a truly magical trip to the countryside.
