Take to Stonor Park this winter for a festive and fun-filled evening at the picturesque country house. This year, the Stonor family are welcoming guests to enjoy the historic house’s splendour with a ‘Candlelit Christmas’ party during the lead up to the big day.
Dressed in candlelight, tinsel, and beautifully adorned Christmas trees, guests will feel right at home at the stately manor, which has been carefully decorated with festive greenery and scented pines, plucked from the estate by head gardener, the park team and renowned florist Sue Bailey West.
Dating all the way back to Medieval times, Stonor Park has a fascinating and rich history, having been home to the Stonor family for an impressive 850 years. Now home also to The Pantry, an inviting café located in the 13th Century Hall, glorious parks and gardens, and a spectacular 13th Century chapel, the family welcome guests from far and wide to enjoy the decadence the manor house has to offer.
Spend an evening delighting in the fantastic festive decor and indulge in delicious winter warmers in The Stonor Pantry, including Champagne, Prosecco and warming mulled wine. Feast on delightful seasonal treats from Christmas cake and winter soup to traditional mince pies and Stonor venison sausages. What’s more, you can get ahead (or catch up) on your Christmas shopping at the Stonor Park gift shop, where you’ll find an array of festive delectables.
William Stonor said of the event: ‘For ‘A Candlelit Christmas’, Stonor will have been made ready for a wonderful Christmas candlelit evening party with open fires roaring, candles just lit and a magnificent 20ft Victorian decorated Christmas Tree in the Gothic Hall laden with sparkling decorations gathered from the family’s travels around the world.’
