Many stately homes have decked their halls and opened up their doors over the festive period. With big beautiful trees and lots of amazing themes to marvel at; visiting a stately home at Christmas is fast becoming a yearly tradition of mine. Here are four of the latest homes I've visited that I would recommend.
I visited Haddon Hall* back in the Summer for its roses and was astounded by how beautiful the medieval Manor House was. Dating back to the 11th century, Haddon Hall is already shrouded in history with its grand Tudor hall and Elizabethan gardens. I was so happy to be back in this building for it's Christmas event this year, where they've decked the atmospheric main hall with a beautiful Christmas tree and roaring fire - you really feel like you've stepped back in history. As you wonder through the building, there's lots of other displays to look at. I would say Haddon Hall is the most 'low key' Christmas event of the bunch, but they often run Christmas markets throughout the start of December if you're looking for the full experience.
