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!
If you are planning outings, please do let us know the day before and we will be pleased to make-up a delicious packed-lunch for you.
