Winter in the UK

There’s always a buzz in the air once the winter chills have arrived. Frosty mornings, cosy log fires and even the occasional snowball fight, it’s no surprise the season brings fond memories to many people.

Things to do in Winter

With thousands of children counting down the number of sleeps until Christmas and many people travelling across the UK to visit families and friends, Christmas and New Year are a perfect time for you to relax, unplug and treat yourself! Eat, drink and be merry, why not? Our blog is dedicated to helping you do just that by bringing you the latest seasonal trends, news and places to visit before heading back to a winter cottage.

Brussel sprouts, turkeys that are too big for the oven and Christmas crackers… What’s not to love?
