The Telegraph once claimed that we spend 23 hours on average preparing for Christmas, including decorating, shopping for presents, food shopping, cooking, cleaning, wrapping, writing cards… Yikes!

Many people enjoy the hustle and bustle of the festive period, however, the stress can get too much for some. Are people more susceptible to go elsewhere for the festive period? Whether it is abroad or somewhere in the UK, people just want to get out of their homes and let somebody else take care of the Christmas dinner.

If everyone is ecstatic, full of excitement but rushing around like headless chickens might it be a good idea to let someone else cater for you? Instead of family and friends congregating at your home, it may be worth bringing them to a venue where everyone can finally relax and actually enjoy each other’s company!

We’re unashamedly plugging this because we’re so excited! For the first time ever, Berwick Lodge is available for exclusive hire over the Christmas period, for groups of up to 27 guests to make their very own. Exceptional food, personable staff, log fires and a beautiful rural setting make it a perfect setting for a Christmas to remember with your loved ones. And it will certainly half the number of hours you spend on Christmas preparation, if not more!
