You don't have to travel to Germany, Prague or Italy to experience the Christmas markets. There are plenty to choose from in the UK and Ireland.
The markets originated in Germany, and Austria generally held in town squares offering food, drinks and seasonal gifts from open air stalls accompanied by traditional dancing and singing. In the UK Lincoln saw the first Christmas market in 1982 consisting of 14 market stalls and is now one of the largest in Europe celebtraing its 30th year.
Why not combine a week or short break at one of our cottages with a trip to a local Christmas Market? Enjoy the sounds of carol singing drifting through the markets, decorations brightening the streets and aromas of mulled wine and cinnamon in the air all creating a magical atmosphere and will help to get you in the festive spirit.
