Step into Christmas at Stoneywell

Christmas wreath on Stoneywell Cottage door, Leicestershire

T'is the season to get ready for Christmas. We may be closing for winter in December, but before we do there is one more celebration to be had, as we step into Christmas.

We will be dressing the cottage as if the Gimson family were getting ready for the festive period, just like many of us will be doing too. Keep your eyes open for the stack of presents ready to be wrapped, the wreath on the front door and the tree waiting to be decorated.

Also, spot the pile of board games ready for the family to play and enjoy a festive tune or two. You can play your part by adding paperchains to the sitting room and by crafting a festive decoration for the tree.

We want to inspire you to get crafty this Christmas. On Sunday 25th, our flower arranging team will be in the cottage to guide you in making a festive arrangement, that you can take home with you. Likewise, look out for festive crafts to be made in the stables on both days.

Christmas would not be the same without a yummy festive treat, so pop into the tea room to indulge your sweet tooth. You can also pick up a gift or two, maybe some biscuits, chutney or National Trust Cookbook.
