Christmas Cottages 2010

Hello and welcome to the BookCottages blog. This is our first post, and just in time for Christmas 2010. We thought we'd let you in on some of the best stately homes to visit this Christmas, so we're kicking off with 5 great houses that have done something special this Christmas.

Chatsworth House

First up there's Chatsworth house, located near Bakewell in the Peak District. This year they've gone to town with a Russian Themed Christmas. Every day from the 6th of November through to the 23rd December their house will be a lavish display of Christmas cheer taking inspiration from the rich culture and traditions of Russia.
