Christmas at Coachmans Holiday Cottage, Steeple Ashton.
There is no better feeling than returning from a walk to the wonderful warmth of the Coachmans Cottage and curling up in front of the fire with a glass of mulled wine and warm mince pies. Come and see for yourself!
Coachmans Cottage is decorated for Christmas from the beginning of December with Short Breaks available up until Christmas week. Guests often come in December to celebrate Christmas early, or to search out Christmas gifts from the wide array of local independent shops, others come over Christmas to get away from it all.
Steeple Ashton at Christmas has a charm of its own. The village Christmas tree is positioned on the Village Green, just a few paces from Coachmans Cottage. And on a weekend early in December, Sunday 9th 2018, villagers and friends gather to sing carols, drink mulled wine, eat mincepies…AND… meet Father Christmas at the Christmas Tree Light Up.
St Mary’s Church in Steeple Ashton has a bi-annual Christmas Tree Festival, 2018 29th Nov. – 2nd Dec. When the whole church is lit up with dozens of trees decorated by all of the village groups, from the Toddlers Group to the For-Get-Me-Nots Club.
