Christmas & New Year

There’s nothing quite like Hawthbush at Christmas time

There’s nothing quite like Hawthbush at Christmas time, and the cottages are never prettier than bathed in candlelight. The surrounding community shares our enthusiasm and all seasonal provisions can be found in our local village shop, from stocking fillers to the turkey (pre-order only). The local church holds well-attended carol services and midnight mass, and the two pubs within walking distance offer much festive cheer. We heartily recommend a crisp walk over the farm and then on to one (or two!) of our local pubs to warm the cockles before a quick dash home to jump into the hot tub. If you’re brave enough you could even head to the coast to join one of the many Christmas swims in the sea.

Over the festive period, we rent out the Cowshed (4 bedrooms) Granary (2 bedrooms) and Piggery (1 bedroom) for a large family group, providing 7 bedrooms, one of which has an additional single bed. We can also set you up with two travel cots and high chairs for infants. At the heart of the Cowshed is its fabulous kitchen, which can seat 14 and is perfect for large gatherings.

We dress the Cowshed with festive decorations and deck a real tree for you in the sitting room. We even offer a wrapping service if you wish to buy our Gun Brewery beer or AMLY facial products to offer as presents, and they will be waiting for you under the tree.
