Christmas is a time for many traditions such as decorating the tree, hanging up stockings, making (and of course drinking!) mulled wine, giving presents and eating mince pies. One major tradition is the sending of Christmas cards which goes back to the Victorian Era with the first commercial Christmas card appearing in 1843.
For an idyllic pre-Christmas getaway this year, we are offering a special break combining our cosy, picture-perfect setting with the bustling Christmas market in the gem town of Cockermouth close by.
