Come and visit us at 3 Cambridge Villas this Christmas!14 November 2016
If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, then what better place to spend it than in the Lake District? There’s so much going on that makes this such a magical time, and we think you’ll find these events in Ambleside and the surrounding areas, will add a special sparkle to your time at 3 Cambridge Villas.
If you have space in your luggage for Victorian fancy dress, you’ll love the Keswick Victorian Fayre on 4th December. This annual event is a great day out with music and street performers, stalls and entertainment. Buy your last-minute Christmas gifts and get involved in competitions and other fun events. This is a perfect start to the Christmas season, and younger children will love seeing Santa in his sleigh drawn by live reindeer!
Hayes Garden Centre in Ambleside, where we’re based, always has a lovely grotto at Christmas as well as a wonderful range of all things festive. This year they’re running their popular Christmas wreath workshop on 6th December, and if you’re creative you won’t want to miss it. There are always plenty of useful hints and tips on keeping greenery fresh, too.
If you’re visiting with young children or you’re a steam train fanatic, you won’t want to miss the picturesque Santa Express. This runs through some stunning scenery in the Lake District National Park and it’s the perfect pre-Christmas treat. But we recommend you book before you arrive as it’s incredibly popular.
Another unmissable treat for the little ones is the Peter Rabbit tea party at the World of Beatrix Potter. We strongly advise you to book in advance to avoid disappointment since this is such a charming way to spend an afternoon with Peter and all your other Beatrix Potter favourites, with a scrumptious tea and a story thrown in!
We all know Christmas isn’t Christmas without carols and there are beautiful churches all over the Lake District with carol concerts throughout the festive period. If you’re looking for more events in Ambleside, we highly recommend stopping by the Ambleside Choral Society’s annual concert, taking place on 10th December.
If you love Christmas as much as we do and want to start a new family tradition, then contact us to book 3 Cambridge Villas for a Christmas to remember!
