  • Hambrook Lodge Festive Front Door

Our Show Ho-ho-home opened it's rather festive front door to welcome visitors across the weekend and it's certainly beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

With the Lenham village Lights Switch On happening on Sunday 24th, we wanted to join in the festive spirit - any excuse to put up the tree!

Our guests experienced what it would be like living at Hambrook Gate during the festive season. Just a short stroll from the village, they were welcomed with warmed mince pies, mulled wine and of course some classic Christmas songs. One of our visitors commented on how 'these homes offer the perfect space to host friends and family and a huge dressing room to hide the kiddies presents!' and we couldn't agree more!

The Lights Switch On in the village is an annual event that finishes with a fantastic fireworks display. It demonstrates all that Lenham has to offer in it's community. The spirit of Christmas truly comes out, with local businesses taking part in a window dressing competition demonstrating their  creativity. Philip Jarvis, one of our partner agents who are based in Lenham let Santa take over their premises to host his grotto for the day.

Lenham has a reputation for great food and drinks outlets and there were plenty of seasonal goodies to sample. The festive market had an array of local makers and suppliers, offering the finest foods and goodies, helping to tick off that gift list. 

Over the weekend we asked guests to guess the number of Christmas lights on our tree, with the winner taking home a voucher to spend at The Bow Window. Based in the village since 2016, they have established themselves with their unique offering of coffees, cakes and much more. If you haven't heard of their ever changing range of unique cheesecakes then we recommend checking out their Instagram to get your stomach rumbling!

If you were unable to visit over the weekend, the Show Home remains open every Saturday in the lead up to Christmas from 11:00-15:00. Contact us if you'd llike to book an appointment 01622 391788.
