With the crackle and aroma of open fires, the scent of pine needles, mulled wine and mince pies….opulent staircases, polished wooden corridors… and a choice of luxury bedrooms… what better way is there to celebrate Christmas?
Relaxation is at the heart of your stay. Although there is an itinerary, you’ll find no regimen to adhere to. Between the sumptuous cuisine and wines we have to offer, if you feel energetic over the break, there are plenty of activities you may wish to pursue.
Perhaps a stroll around the lakes – one of which has its very own Grade I listed 12th Century Church, and the other a beautifully restored Grade II* listed Palladium Boathouse. For the keen angler, the lakes are well stocked with fish. The Estate also boasts an 18 hole 72 par Golf Course.
If you wish to explore further afield, the beautiful Georgian City of Bath or the Cathedral City of Wells are a short distance away. Jump Racing at Wincanton is also a traditional destination on Boxing Day.
But then again… you could just pull up a comfortable chair next to a roaring log fire and dive into that book you promised yourself… whatever your heart’s desire…
