Christmas at Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens

Christmas at Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens

Details

Christmas opening 11am to 5pm

Each year, visitors flock to Burton Agnes Hall to see how its stunning gardens provide some of the loveliest natural decorations imaginable.

Simon and Olivia Cunliffe-Lister, with the keen help of their five children and a small army of local supporters, decorate their Elizabethan home to create a wonderland with traditional and contemporary handmade decorations.

Their passion for all things Christmassy and eye for detail creates a truly unique festive experience.

‘We love thinking of creative ways to embellish the Hall for the coming Christmas, and spend many months dreaming up and handmaking quirky, original decorations. In the house this year we’ll use the Walled Garden’s abundant crop of hops flowers; bundles of fresh, fragrant eucalyptus and a series of lollipop-shaped bay trees.

There will be a music-themed tree, many swans a-swimming in the dining room, a very regal King’s Bedroom, and a snowdrop-themed Garden Gallery to anticipate our own woodland’s spring snowdrop carpet. We are thrilled to be able to share our home at this wonderful time, and shall welcome you with open arms’, says Olivia Cunliffe-Lister.

Young visitors are especially welcome, and are encouraged to find homemade felt snowman dolls, hidden in each room by the Cunliffe-Lister children. When dusk falls, Christmas cheer abounds: with Christmas-light-strewn topiary bushes, the Great Hall’s fire glowing warmly and twinkling lights throughout, visitors will be infused with the many joys of Christmas.

Visitors can take newfound inspiration to the courtyard, enjoying festive treats in the café and unusual decorations and Christmas presents in the courtyard shops. Little ones can also visit Father Christmas in his courtyard grotto every Christmas opening weekend.
