About Deck the halls! Christmas craftsHelp to prepare for Christmas at Killerton's Georgian mansion.
Help the staff at this lovely Georgian mansion to prepare for Christmas. Part of the week will be spent working outside with the wardens gathering the raw materials to use as Christmas decorations. You can then use the foliage you have collected to decorate the stable block and house in a traditional style. No experience is needed as tuition will be given. Your new skills can be put to good use back in your own home. Expert tuition will be provided by Sarah Pepper, local florist and festive artist.
About the accommodation
