Christmas at the Farthings Hotel

When you are packing, don’t forget the wellies, hat & scarf so that you can take advantage of some lovely crisp countryside walks.  You might also like to bring a good book to read during a lazy afternoon, in front of the log fire.  A pack of cards and some board games might also come in handy!
