AWAY FROM IT ALL
Live in luxury and listen to the waves crashing as you check in for a wintry beachy getaway at The School House, on the Yorkshire Coast…
Wynyard Hall are inviting grown-ups along for some festive fun on and off the ice. Enjoy a 45-minute outdoor ice skating session, followed by a glass of mulled wine and hot roast buns to warm the cockles!
This weekend, Northumberlandia is transformed into an Enchanted Christmas Forest, promising ice skating thrills and tons of kids’ rides, plus festive stalls, crafty workshops and artisan food and drink for the whole family.
WITH THE KIDS
Take tots to Lumley Castle on Saturday for a Christmassy tea party with Grinch and his pal Cindy Lou. Alongside hot drinks and sweet treats, kids will also be given their very own Christmas present, delivered by a very special guest.
Aladdin is given a festive twist on stage at Darlington Hippodrome. Take them to see this year’s panto show this weekend, starring the hilarious Louis Spence, and lose yourself in the naughtiness, slapstick antics and Christmassy magic.
Stop by Sunderland’s Winter Garden Market to pick up extra special festive treats. We’re thinking Christmassy cheese and chutney duos, local bread, meats and veg, plus plenty of seasonal sweet stuff.
Treat yourselves to a spot of Festive Afternoon Tea at The Vermont Hotel. Relax in the luxury lounge or intimate Redwood Bar by the fire, tucking in to spiced scones, sandwiches with festive fillings and mini Christmas desserts.
