Luxury Christmas Escape 2020
Monday 23rd December for a 4 night hideaway in this idyllic market town - £2,600
Check-in from 4pm and head on over to Parson's Barn. Our 3 bedroom cottage sleeps up to 7 people so you can bring all the family together at Christmas. You will find the cottage ready for Christmas with fully decorated tree from our local supplier at Dowdeswell Forestry and a few treats underneath from Santa.
You will find a Christmas hamper full of goodies and a stocked bar with some of your favourite tipples already in the cottage so you won't need to worry about snacks when you arrive.
Come on over for a fabulous cooked breakfast at The Old Stocks Inn on Christmas Eve from 8am till 9.30am with the family before a bit of exploring. There are lots of lovely independent shops that will be open for those all-important last-minute gift purchases, and you could even pick up some special treats for yourself.
St Edward’s Church, found just across the Square, will be holding a Midnight Mass ceremony – if you’d like to join, wrap up warm and walk across. Sleep well in our big, comfy beds and if you’ve been good, the big man himself might leave something for you under the cottage tree!
Merry Christmas everyone! Whether you’re a careful unwrapper or like to rip the paper straight off, don’t forget to open your presents! After a relaxed family breakfast in the kitchen you'll find all the utensils you need to rustle up a Christmas feast at the cottage.
Alternatively, you can visit one of the restaurants within walking distance on Christmas Day and let them do all the washing up!
Further afield The Wheatsheaf, The Hollow Bottom & Whatley Manor are all open on Christmas Day for lunch with the family.
Then meander back to the cottage and cosy up on the squishy sofas to watch a festive family movie or a family Mario Kart tournament on the Nintendo Switch. With so much to do nearby, you'll be sure to have a magical Christmas Day in the Cotswolds.
There’s always room for leftover turkey sandwiches, cold pigs in blankets and a cheese platter! Spend the day relaxing, playing board games or just catching up on sport and box sets on Sky.
Alternatively, select one of our guided walks from reception and work up an appetite as you explore the Cotswold countryside.
After breakfast, it’s time to check out and head home. We’ll be really sorry to see you go, but we look forward to welcoming you back again throughout 2021.
