5 things you shouldn't do this Christmas


It’s almost that time of the year again and we are already dreaming of sitting by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate, admiring the Christmas tree together with our loved ones, escaping the worries of everyday life.

But this picture perfect setting always comes with a great deal of planning and effort! Why not make a change this year and fast forward straight to the perfect Christmas escape?

And in the spirit of change, here we give you the five things you shouldn’t do in order to celebrate the perfect Christmas!

Don't Stress!

Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year, but it often comes with a lot of stress attached. Buying the perfect gifts, getting the whole family together, cooking a ridiculous amount of delicious meals while keeping in mind everyone’s preferences, decorating a spectacular Christmas tree and, after all this, being ready to attend the festive celebrations. If it all just makes you want to press pause for a moment, know that there is a way to escape it all and still tick all the boxes on the ‘perfect Christmas’ checklist. Eynsham Hall is the ideal place to celebrate a hassle-free Christmas while feeling completely at home in a cozy and charming setting. Sit by the fireplace and enjoy a fresh cup of tea and homemade scones while admiring the festive decorations in the lobby and the impressive Christmas tree set in the grandeur of the Main Hall, take a stroll outside and take in the fresh air of a crisp winter day or enjoy a festive dinner with your loved ones. It all comes down to a simple thing: sitting back and relaxing!  

Don’t miss out on all the fun!
