Dark Christmas

This will be a new set-up this year - a gorgeous black & gold set-up which is ideal for larger families.

You won't want to miss this new set-up - it's purely beautiful.

White Christmas

For smaller families, this traditional white set-up is ideal. With a beautiful fireplace, it's such a warm set-up.

This is a new set-up this year and it's just stunning!

Christmas Kitchen

Our Christmas kitchen (which was a huge hit last year) is coming back again with a bit of an upgrade...
