Na­tional Trust cre­ates win­ter won­der­lands

Warwickshire Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

IT’S De­cem­ber so we’re al­lowed to dive head-first into ev­ery­thing Christ­massy to get us well and truly into the fes­tive mood. And at Na­tional Trust prop­er­ties this month, you can deck the halls, see the lights twin­kle, buy a host of Christ­mas pressies – or even es­cape the hus­tle and bus­tle with a win­ter walk.

There are so many events for all the fam­ily.

Across the coun­try, his­toric houses will be decked for the sea­son in the style of cen­turies gone by and vis­i­tors can stroll through frosty

His­toric prop­er­ties get fes­tive this Christ­mas

gar­dens covered in sparkling lights.

In­dulge your­self in mince pies, mulled wine and magic – at one of the many Christ­mas mar­kets, soak­ing up the fes­tive spirit and en­joy­ing the pic­turesque stalls laden with gor­geous hand­made crafts, lo­cal food and ex­tra spe­cial gifts.

And even though it’s a busy time of year for Santa Claus, he’s found time to stop off in some glo­ri­ous grot­toes cre­ated in the most amaz­ing lo­ca­tions from cas­tles to won­der­ful wood­land hide­aways.

Have a word with Fa­ther Christ­mas to make sure he’s got your wish list this year – or lis­ten to him and Mother Christ­mas en­trance ev­ery­one with their stories of the Christ­mas tra­di­tions, in cer­tain NT lo­ca­tions.

If you want to es­cape the fes­tive flurry (at least un­til the Big Day it­self ar­rives), wrap your­self up and go on a Na­tional Trust win­ter walk to blow all those cob­webs away and en­joy the best of De­cem­ber’s scenery and wildlife.

Santa Claus will call in at cer­tain Na­tional Trust sites
