A Note from the Editor

Christmas is a mix of so many magical elements that I always feel a thrill of anticipation at the prospect of this favourite time of year.

And, for me, the perfect way to start my festive preparations is with a visit to one of the Country Living Christmas Fairs being held around the country in London, Glasgow and Harrogate. Step inside and you’ll find a winter wonderland of beautiful original gifts and seasonal inspiration, with handcrafted presents, eye-catching decorations and a tempting array of the finest artisan-made food and drink, as well as special treats for yourself.

Entertaining talks and fun workshops offer the chance to pick up great advice from the experts and you’ll come away with plenty of exciting ideas to bring seasonal style to your home. Or simply relax and catch up with friends in our Champagne bar and tea room while soaking up the festive atmosphere. Come and enjoy a delightful day out while getting a head start on your plans for a truly memorable Christmas celebration.

We hope to see you there!
