The house and gardens were only limited, but they offered something different from the normal (lovely) property. In the house there was a tour of a few rooms which had been decorated for Christmas, the State Bed featured a typical christmas present for the lady of the house, and we also had a visit to the servants hall which hasn't been open to the public before.
After a nice warm cup of tea, we headed off to meet Father Christmas. Luckily we only had a little wait, unlike everyone else as the queue reached into the courtyard for the rest of the day!
Then the sun began to set and we started the Christmas Chimes walk, with a beautiful poem guiding us on Christmas trees.
A day full of Christmas cheer, we had such an amazing day, truly lovely.
