Our Canterbury Reach Lodge Retreat is set in the perfect location for those looking to head to the beautiful historic town of Canterbury in the next couple of months to get started with Christmas shopping! Just 20 minutes’ drive from the City Centre and surrounded by stunning countryside it’s the best place to be to start the festive season off right!
Canterbury is probably best known from the medieval tale collections Canterbury Tales, written by the poet Chaucer but it now has a name for itself for hosting one of the best Christmas markets in the UK.
The main attractions can be found in Whitefriars Square with an abundance of cabins selling unique Christmas gifts and decorations. There will be mulled wine and plenty of food vendors to choose from and after you’ve shopped ‘till you’ve dropped at the markets, why not take a wander down the beautiful lanes of the City Centre or visit the ‘must-see’ Cathedral.
Kent’s Leeds Castle is another perfect place to visit for a traditional Christmas market experience, just over 30 minutes’ drive from Canterbury Reach Lodge Retreat, Leeds Castle is the ideal place to soak up the Christmas atmosphere in a beautiful setting.
Head down on the following dates to get involved in the festive fun: 23rd – 26th November, 2nd- 3rd December, 9th – 10th December and 16th – 17th December.
The market will be set up on Cedar Lawn overlooking the majestic castle with stalls full of seasonal gifts, toys, festive decorations and plenty of food and drink so you can take some time out in between the shopping madness to soak in the beautiful scenery.
There will be opportunity for family fun too, visit the reindeer and birds of prey with fun fair rides and live music to keep you entertained too!
So what are you waiting for? Head down to Kent and book a stay at our Canterbury Reach Lodge Retreat in November or December to surround yourself in Christmas cheer!
