Sometimes a short break is all you need to re-energise; treat yourself to a mid-week or weekend escape to let loose, unwind and indulge in life’s pleasures and especially at a time of the year when festive madness can take over!
There are plenty of towns, national trust properties and countryside walks to enjoy near Cumberland House and a couple of days exploring the area during the winter is an opportunity to both stock up on some Christmas shopping and enjoy the crisp, invigorating winter air of exploration. However, there is also plenty going on for a fun and sociable evening’s entertainment too and below is a small selection of festive frivolities to tickle most tastebuds:
