Jingle 'till you tingle...

This year Christmas may not look like our usual Christmas with a lot of uncertainty ahead, however, one thing that we are certain about is that Christmas has NOT been cancelled and Father Christmas is on his way! The latest Government guidelines allow 3 households to get together from 23rd-27th December as well as being able to see up to 6 friends or family in an outdoor space allowing some much-needed festive cheer this year!

This festive season will be marked with new ways of celebrating, more than likely via Zoom with less travelling involved, however Holiday at Home are here with you every step of the way. What better way to make this moment even more magical than by getting your ‘Christmas bubble’ together for a much-needed change of scenery this festive season at one of our luxury holiday homes available this Christmas in North Yorkshire.

Although we have seen lots of Christmas events have been postponed this year, all hope is not lost with a number of magical events still happening across North Yorkshire. From local Christmas markets to dazzling light illuminations and of course a visit to Santa’s Grotto – there is still lots to do in Yorkshire this Christmas!

Here are our top 4 events that are going ahead this Christmas in Yorkshire…

Christmas at Fountains Abbey

Experience a very Yorkshire Christmas with the family at Fountains Abbey this year. Discover the family trail through acres of Yorkshire countryside and have a winter adventure watching the colourful abbey ruins aglow with music filling the cellarium, follow the river down to the sprawling water garden and spot wild deer roaming the medieval deer park. Warm-up with a mug of hot chocolate at the café and a spot of Christmas shopping at the shops. Breathe in the fresh Yorkshire air and experience Christmas how it’s meant to be; a time to make memories with your loved ones.

Christmas at Castle Howard

Castle Howard has so much magic to offer the whole family this Christmas. Enjoy a winter walk around the gardens and grounds and spot the 30 foot Christmas tree outside at the end of the sparkling lit driveway before letting off steam with the little ones at the adventure playground. Pick up some last-minute presents and Christmas decorations with the late-night shopping events and feast on wood-fired pizza, hot dogs, mulled wine and hot chocolate from the popup trailers before visiting Father Christmas in his Grotto from 4th December.

Bedale Christmas Festival

This Christmas, Bedale will host a Christmas Festival where visitors can attend an Indoor Shopping weekend at Bedale Hall on 4th and 5th December with a variety of fabulous local small businesses to choose some unique Christmas gifts from. Also, don’t miss the outdoor Street Market on December 19th from 10am-4pm at the market place where the kids can meet Santa in his Grotto before the big day as well as some last minute Christmas shopping for everyone.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway Santa Special

Meet Santa’s helpers and travel on a heritage steam train with North Yorkshire Moor Railway and Jingle all the way from Pickering to Levisham Station.
