Are you turned off by Christmas? Does the round of relatives and friends bore you?

Christmas in the mountains is a chance to get away from all of that. We have a selection of optional readings for those who choose to take part- precise details in your welcome pack. We also have a range of fine food and wines that will make this anti-Xmas special.

Come and enjoy as much peace and tranquility as you desire and join in with our long, chatty dinners, where fellow readers gather together to spend the Christmas they have always wanted.

There are five walks along the country lanes to help the food go down and some optional longer hikes for the more adventurous. This is your chance to get away from the non-stop commercialism and enjoy the fellow-feeling of a group of friends.
