Y is for Yet To Come

Whilst we’re loving the arrival of the season for cashmere, heavy knits & indulgent hot drinks, we are finding ourselves a little melancholy at the prospect of our A-Z blog coming to a close. Now, whilst we have a few ideas of our own for 2017’s blog, we’d love it if you’d inspire us a little more, we’d love to hear your ideas! Pop your ideas under the subject ‘Inspiration’ to laura@luxuryinthecotswolds.co.uk & in return we’ll give the winning idea an exclusive discount for a luxury stay with us in the Cotswolds.

Now on to Y for Yet to come… We have had a very busy calendar of events so far in 2016 & the festive season does not disappoint, here are a few of our picks of MUST visits in the coming months.

WellChild Christmas Fair – Daylesford Organic Farm, Kingham

7th – 9th November 2016

Last year’s fair supplied us with a fair chunk of our Christmas presents (with a few to ourselves obviously). Cue endless stalls of beautiful gifts from wooden toys, artisan jewels to fabulous foodie gifts, our favourite discovery from the 2015 fair were ‘Sir Plus’, stop off & discover their ingenious clothes for the men in your life! Tickets can be purchased on arrival.

Living Crafts For Christmas – Blenheim Palace, Woodstock

17th – 19th November 2016

The Living Crafts for Christmas fair is not only a highlight of festive shopping in The Cotswolds, it is also a fabulous day out & a wonderful opportunity to take in the architecture behind Blenheim Palace. Held in the Great Court directly in front of the palace, the fair offers a little of everything with ceramics, jewellery, show-stopping millinery, toys, fashion… the list goes on. With tickets available in advance, on the door & only a small fee for annual pass holders, this is one to add to your planner.

Christmas at Blenheim – Blenheim Palace, Woodstock

25th November 2016 – 2nd January 2017

This is one we can’t ‘speak from experience on’ just yet as 2016 is the first year, however we have already purchased our tickets so watch out for photos on our Twitter & Instagram! Blenheim Estate will be illuminated for a breath-taking festive trail perfect for all the family – with promises of Fire Gardens, Sparkling Hedgerows, Snowflake filled boats & wait for it… singing Christmas trees (we’re a tad sceptical on this bit, but we’re sure we can be convinced). Tickets are selling fast for this unusual but ingenious foray into the depths of the estate. Top tip// Book the parking! For those of you who aren’t local there is very little parking elsewhere.

There are plenty of other events happening throughout November & December, keep an eye out for late night shopping events  at our favourite haunt – Bicester Village; Soho Farmhouse have a full calendar of festive events for their members & Burford Garden Centre’s Christmas Room is a must for decorations (we have a tradition of buying at least one every year).

Our final blog post of 2016 will follow in early December, in the meantime have a fabulous November and keep an eye out on our social media pages for more ideas on what to get up to in the coming months.

We'll be in touch soon
