There is one life experience that should not be missed: a holiday in the English countryside over Christmas. The sights, sounds and picturesque colours of the season are intoxicating to the spirit. The English countryside at other times of the year is an ideal holiday escape. Over Christmas, it is exceptional.
A Magical, Glorious Holiday Adventure
Over Christmas season, the English countryside is a magical adventure into England of the past. Imagine glorious country air and waking in a country house hotel where guests are treated like royalty. More wondrous is an opportunity to pare down a gift list at luxury shops in a beautiful seasonal atmosphere. Should a day of shopping become wearying, enjoy the tradition of high tea in a quaint tea room. There is no better way to relax before “eventide”.
An Evening In The English Countryside Over Christmas
There are so few opportunities to return to Christmas past when winter evenings meant hearty rustic meals in the English countryside complimented by a bowl of wassail to warm the spirit. Fortunately, it is now possible to recapture this pleasurable experience. The English countryside is not without fully appointed hotels that offer a complete dinner soiree and selections of finest wines, not to mention menus that present true English cuisine at its best.
English Countryside Theatre
When evening comes, visitors to the countryside find entertainment in theatre in native origins. There will be no surprise awaiting if a rendition of Dicken’s, “A Christmas Carol” or “Twelfth Night” are a main attraction at countryside theatres. The English are veritable lovers of theatre arts in its most captivating form. Yet, there is the whimsical side of theatre the English dote upon. Look for plays and films that suit most visitors tastes. Visit local countryside manors outfitted in seasonal decor that create a Christmas wonderland.
Country Hotel Entertainment
In terms of scenic value, country hotels will provide much to appreciate. Fireside dinners or just relaxing in comfort in overstuffed strategically situated divans before a glowing fire is another of the pleasures of the English countryside over Christmas. Or, be regaled by a talented chorus of carollers or a seasonal musical quartet offering the very best sounds of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”. This is the kind of traditional extravagance guests enjoy during a Christmas holiday in the countryside in a hotel and theatre.
Gently, Gently The Falling Snow As Off To Bed A Guest Must Go
Visitors to the English Countryside over Christmas find there is a need for a full week to really enjoy the spirits of the season, patronize shops, savour English fare and be enveloped in traditions of an English countryside Christmas holiday. Plan an itinerary so the holiday is replete with Christmas spirit and all that the English countryside offers. At the end of each day as snow gently falls and sleepy visitors drift off into their own Christmas visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads, more holiday remains to be enjoyed
