It’s the feasting season so pack a bag for a week and head to Wilderness Reserve with family. Allocate rooms, hang stockings and settle in for a cosy trip. Celebrate in opulence at Sibton Manor, or get back to nature with a stay in the Tudor house Moat Cottage.
For big families book out all 50 rooms for a week long celebration. Roaring fires, heated floors and a cinema room to watch something cheesy.
Or for a smaller Christmas, take the 8 person The Cartshed or charming 12 person The Farmhouse for a group celebration.
Food and Drink
If you’d like someone else to do the work, our country cooks can put together a Christmas feast for the family. Locally sourced organic turkey, with all the trimmings. Or a new spin on Christmas with a lamb dish or veggie roast. Head down to the wine cellar and pick just the right wines, and finish the meal with a nice cup of coffee or mug of Baileys.
Christmas Day Walks
Nothing like a bracing walk after the big meal. Explore the 5,000 acres of parkland and try and work up an appetite for the next big plates of food. Point out the deer and festive scene, then return to mess around in the games room or run a hot bath.
