The nights are drawing in, the winter rain is beginning to fall and the trees are becoming bare. And with the winter season upon us comes the festive anticipation.
Even the Christmas Grinches among us can’t deny the season to be jolly is approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about the all-important Christmas shopping – and let’s face it, the sooner you start the sooner it’s over with!
The New Forest is a great place to get started as all the beautiful little villages nestled all over the place are home to an array of independent shops, perfect for the unique Christmas gifts you’re looking for.
Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Beaulieu are all great starting places – and we promise they won’t disappoint when it comes to quirky little shops!
However we all know what a day spent Christmas shopping can do to you. Exhaustion is just one word you could use to describe the state you’ll be left in, but luckily we know just the perfect pick-me-up.
A hot pot of tea can fix most problems, but here at the Montagu Arms our award winning Afternoon Tea is the perfect remedy for the Christmas shopping blues. Stepping out of the cold and into the warmth from our roaring log fires and nestling into our cosy sofas is just what you’ll need after a long day out!
Finely cut sandwiches, warm squidgy scones with thick clotted cream and New Forest jam, speciality cakes and fair trade tea – what more could you need to make a full recovery?
