After completing all our Christmas shopping early my husband and I decided to give ourselves a Christmas treat and get away for a night. After staying at Ettington Park in August we decided it would be lovely to go back in December and experience the house in the winter time. Again we were not disappointed. On entering the reception area we were met by warm friendly staff, a log fire was burning and the christmas decorations looked fantastic, it was magical.
We had booked one of the suites over looking the grounds and the Victorian Garden, the views were amazing.
After dressing for dinner we enjoyed a glass of champagne while we browsed through the extensive menu and had a fantastic leisurely evening meal by candlelight.
Before going down for our hearty breakfast the next morning we enjoyed a cup of tea in our room looking out across the gardens at the deer feeding on the lawns, it was a beautiful sight.
For us this one night treat went all to quickly and we were again left wishing we had booked a two night break to really enjoy the house. This will definately be on our agenda next year and hopefully the next time we stay at Ettington Park we will get to enjoy one of their afternoon teas that look absolutely out of this world.
