Welcome to our Festive Home issue, packed full of ideas for friends, family and the home. We are delighted to feature an interview with Sarah Callander Beckett, Owner of Combermere Abbey about the exciting restoration project.
In the lead up to the Festive celebrations, we’ve included some very helpful advice from our top UK chefs on how to prepare in the kitchen. There is something quite special about curling up with a good book, and we have an absolutely delicious collection of Top 10 Festive Reads, plus a gift guide and Winter Beauty Round-up, full of gorgeous gifts.
If you are planning to revitalise your home in the New Year we have plenty of ideas for updating your home from the wonderful companies in our Directory.
Alternatively if you are planning a last-minute getaway, or are looking ahead to next year’s holidays we have plenty of suggestions in our Festive Escapes.
As this is our last magazine for 2018 we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to our magazines throughout the year, to the fabulous companies in our Directory, the authors and the PR/publicity teams who always respond to our requests so promptly, and to YOU, our wonderful readers who always give us such positive feedback. We wish you all a very happy festive holiday and a peaceful and happy 2019.
