Christmas at Coachmans Holiday Cottage, Steeple Ashton

Coachmans Cottage is decorated for Christmas from the beginning of December with Short Breaks available up until Christmas week.

Guests often come in December to celebrate Christmas early, or to search out Christmas gifts from the wide array of local independent shops, others come over Christmas to get away from it all.

Steeple Ashton at Christmas has a charm of its own. The village Christmas tree is positioned on the Village Green, just a few paces from Coachmans Cottage. And on a weekend early in December, villagers and friends gather to sing carols, drink mulled wine, eat mincepies…AND… meet Father Christmas at the Christmas Tree Light Up.

St Mary’s Church in Steeple Ashton has a bi-annual Christmas Tree Festival.

Join the villagers at our beautiful St Mary’s Church for the Advent Services, Annual Carol Service, Midnight Mass, and more.
