There is so much to do near Mazzard Farm in the run up to the Festive Season. From Christmas Markets to Lighting Spectacles, from Trams to Trains. And what is better then to enjoy a lovely meal in one of the great pubs near us, and come back to your cosy cottage, ready to light a warm log fire! Breaks from as little as £225. And remember, if your kids' school breaks up the week before Christmas, you can include these in a great and VERY AFFORDABLE pre-Christmas break!
