It may be known more for its polo matches than Christmas events, but the Cowdray Estate in West Sussex puts on a magnificently magical festive display in December. The Christmas at Cowdray route is lit by sparkling illuminations and accompanied by a wintery soundscape for the perfect Christmastime scene-setter. The trail starts in Cowdray's woods and ends at the atmospheric castle ruins.
Designed to be enjoyed by adults and children alike, there’s the option to book a slot to meet Father Christmas or simply search out a warming cup of mulled wine to savour.
Where to stay: Check into the cosy Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa in Midhurst, where the crackling open fires will welcome you in from the chilly December air.
