Imagine yourself in the movie ‘The Holiday’
Follow in the footsteps of Cameron Diaz in The Holiday and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by enjoying Christmas in a quaint and idyllic English village in the Cotswolds.
Welcome to England.
Once clear of Immigration and Customs, there’s a transfer from London Heathrow to your hotel in central London. On route there will be a short panoramic tour of London, before arriving at the hotel. You will have the rest of the afternoon and evening at your leisure.
Pre – Christmas London.
Today is at your leisure to enjoy pre-Christmas London, maybe a visit to Harrods, Liberty’s, Selfridges or Bond Street. As the light fades, enjoy the Lights of Regents Street, the Christmas tree and carols in Trafalgar square, see the ice skating at Somerset House, and maybe enjoy a Carol service at one of the cathedrals or experience the Christmas Markets in Hyde Park, part of the Winter Wonderland which is open until 10pm each day.
After a leisurely breakfast in the hotel, your driver will collect you at noon for your transfer to the Cotswolds and your luxury pub accommodation, the Old Swan & Minster Mill, quintessentially English at the heart of the Old Minster village and with a history going back almost 600 years. You will be welcomed with Afternoon Tea. Join other guests for drink and canapés reception, before a three course dinner. Enjoy the candlelit walk to midnight mass at one of the local churches; on the return, enjoy a mug of hot chocolate with mince pies by the fire.
Celebrate the start of Christmas with full English breakfast and bucks fizz. Your morning may include a leisurely stroll around the village or relaxing in the hotel. Join other guests for a midday champagne reception followed by a five course festive lunch. Dinner this evening will feature a buffet showcasing the best local produce.
Start the day with a leisurely breakfast. Today may be spent either relaxing in front of the log fire, or exploring this lovely village before preparing yourself for the farewell dinner and dance.
Return to London.
After a leisurely breakfast and with some very happy memories of your traditional English Christmas, your driver will collect and take you back to London where there will be a chance for some last minute shopping.
