The former home of the Earls of Lonsdale will come alive with the sights and sounds of a traditional Christmas market this December, when more than 50 stalls take residence in the grounds of Askham Hall and Gardens – a 13th century stately home turned restaurant with rooms
Visitors to the 12 acre gardens on the North East fringe of the Lake District National Park can enjoy live festive music and an expanded variety of food and drink, alongside an array of local festive crafts and giftware ranging from candles and ceramics to handmade cushions, fragrances and wreaths.
The festivities will spread across Askham’s Medieval Hall, ‘Party Barn’ and rustic courtyard. Traditional winter warmers including mulled wine and mince pies will also be available throughout the day at Askham Hall Café, while Father Christmas will be on hand to meet the children in his special Christmas Grotto.
