In 2012 the New Forest once again plays host to a range of Christmas festivities and it’s no surprise – the Forest truly comes to life during the Christmas period.
With Christmas taking over the supermarkets, shops and television with all the subtlety of the Coca Cola advert we often lose sight of what Christmas is all about, the tradition of quality time spent with loved ones.
It perhaps no surprise then that the New Forest proves so popular during the festive break as it marks a return to a more traditional Christmas.
Christmas in Lyndhurst is a shining example of this Christmas spirit. Every year the local help put up the lights and Christmas trees and then come together to watch them turned on.
This year’s switch on will be on the 24th November outside the Mailman’s at 4.45pm with entertainment from the New Forest Rock Choir and a celebrity guest.
Also in Lyndhurst the a Christmas Fun Day on the 8th December with the whole village getting involved in a variety of activities, from competitions to raffles. There’s even a Santa’s Grotto!
There is fun to be had for all the family, and you’ll certainly enjoy the idyllic setting of Lyndhurst, which is sure to get even the grumpiest of characters into the Christmas spirit.
With Lyndhurst a short drive from Careys Manor we hope you’ll join us afterwards for another Christmas tradition – good food.
With three fine restaurants to choose from, offering a range of cuisines, we are sure you’ll have a dining experience worthy of a traditional Christmas.
