Dream A Little Dream Of Dewsall Court This Christmas

Christmas… Is it the same as it used to be? Staying up for as long as you can before leaving out the mince pies and brandy for Santa and the milk and carrot for Rudolf. Waking up (the earliest in the street!), running into your parents bedroom before Dad goes to check to see if Santa has been. He has! Game Boy, Pogo Ball, Glitter Wand, pink hairband and brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shell suit!

It’s not. It’s never going to be the same as it ever was. But the older we get, the more we realise that Christmas is still ours. It’s still ours to celebrate and get merry exactly how we want to. And the great thing is… we have jobs now not just pocket money so we can treat ourselves to something super spesh!

So rather than the addictive games and branded fire hazard outfits, we’re gloriously being gifted with Champagne, perfume, jewellery, heels and technology. And where better to unwrap these treats this year…

… House of Coco favourite, Dewsall Court, is a Grade II listed country house retreat in Herefordshire. It has ten bedrooms, each with its own feature bathroom and is set in 15 acres of private grounds.

It’s easy to get to, cosy, stunning, magical and with space for 23 people… the packages are from around just £327 each!

That’s for the entire place exclusively, decorated for a luxurious Christmas, champagne (!), toiletries by Aromatherapy Associates, local and seasonal handmade treats and more.

So gather up a posse and before this year is over… and make 2014 worth remembering, with Christmas or New Year in luxury at Dewsall Court.

Here’s what Dewsall Court say about the experience.

“Rejoice together in quintessentially British style this festive season at lavish countryside celebration house Dewsall Court in Herefordshire.  Set in 15 acres of private grounds, the ten bedroom property that sleeps 23 is taking the stress out of Christmas and New Year by offering two very special exclusive use packages complete with plenty of Perrier Jouet Champagne, mince pies and a large beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Whatever the festive wish, Dewsall will endevour to make it come true.

A much loved former family home and heritage estate, Dewsall offers an endearing mix of old and new, grandeur and home comfort, where decades of arts and antiques sit alongside plush furnishings and cosy corners. The property is nestled at the end of a quiet country lane where guests can enjoy complete privacy and seclusion during the festive season. Brandy and mince pies by a roaring open fire, cooking on an Aga in the country kitchen and watching Christmas movies in the snug are just some of the ways in which guests can relax and enjoy their time together and make it a magical Christmas to remember.

The Christmas Package is a five night exclusive use stay and New Year is a four night stay with both packages offering 6 bottles of Perrier Jouet Champagne, a game safe filled with delicious local and homemade seasonal treats, high quality linen, flowers displayed throughout and 24/7 access to a member of staff. Added extras such as an in-house chef cooking with local produce; table decorations; and crackers; a housekeeper; tickets to Hereford Cathedral Carol Service and activities such as guided walks; foraging; shooting and archery to create a truly bespoke and unforgettable experience.

Each of the ten bedrooms has Dewsall’s own individual character, with king size beds and feature bathrooms adding that extra sense of comfort and indulgence. The property will be staffed where necessary, fully catered when requested and entirely private if desired, always aiming to meet the needs and wishes of its guests. The house is just as intimate for a family of four as it would be for much larger parties.

Those wishing to take the celebration outside on New Year’s Eve will find Dewsall’s Wain House Barn with woodburning stove and medieval candle chandeliers a more than fitting location to party under the stars. This is country living at its very best – a celebration house waiting to be discovered…”
