Your guide to our Christmas Markets & Winter Walking Holidays

Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes

Guaranteed to add an extra sprinkling of magic to the festive season, these brand-new breaks combine a choice of guided winter walks with some of the UK’s finest Christmas markets. So you can enjoy getting yuletide all wrapped up while also making the most of a full-board stay at one of our characterful country houses.

Find Neverland in the North York Moors

Enjoy Castle Howard’s Christmas in Neverland experience – an interactive event that celebrates JM Barrie’s children’s classic, Peter Pan. This grand Baroque manor will echo with Lost Boy-laughter as pirate ships cruise into the great gallery and beautiful rooms become tropical lagoons. There’ll also be the chance to shop for seasonal gifts and sample yuletide treats in the castle’s teashop.

Festive fun in the Peak District

The Christmas market at Chatsworth House never disappoints. Set in 1,822 acres of manicured parkland and gardens on the gorgeous River Derwent, this stunning stately home will host over 100 stalls offering a wide range of seasonal gifts, decorations, and festive fare. 

Christmas shopping in the Cotswolds

Experience Blenheim Palace’s fabulous festive market. For a limited time only, this 300-year-old stately home and UNESCO World Heritage Site is transformed into a winter wonderland. Expect lakeside strolls lit up by twinkling lights, lavish rooms that reimagine scenes from 

Sleeping Beauty, and the Great Hall illuminated with a huge Christmas tree. There’ll also be the opportunity to shop for seasonal gifts at the palace’s marketplace stalls.

With limited places available, these breaks will be gone faster than the last mince pie.
