*We have been gifted tickets to the Country a Living Christmas Fair in return for this post. The photographs within are my own taken at their fairs on previous years. As always all opinions are my own.
If you love Christmas… or just need to get ready for the big day, the Country Living Christmas Fair in Harrogate is an event not to be missed.
Being regular attendees, for my mum and I, it marks the start of the festive period. It’s a chance to relax, soak up the Christmas atmosphere and make the finishing touches to our Christmas shopping.
There is sure to be food sampled, a brownie (or several) tasted and there may even be a cheeky glass of Prosecco in the mix.
So What Do We Love About It?
The chance to meet so many small businesses in one place is always a joy, I love discoing new products that I haven’t seen before and the Country Living Christmas Fair is a great place to do it.
No matter what the weather outside, inside it is warm and dry, meaning you can enjoy your Christmas shopping rather than rushing round to beat the cold.
The entire place is always full of people who are just enjoying the day, which means there is always a truly fabulous atmosphere.
Attending is the perfect Christmas ritual to start with a friend or family member, meaning that you are guaranteed to meet each year to enjoy the pre-Christmas Magic together.
For us the location is the icing on the cake. Harrogate is beautiful at any time of year, but at Christmas it is always especially magical.
What Would We Change?
Probably my number one change is that I would love it to last longer. The fair lasts for four days, but I know once it has gone I’m guaranteed to wish I’d bought just a little something extra.
Who Would We Recommend It To?
If you love Christmas or need to complete your Christmas shopping you will definitely not regret a trip to the The Country Living Christmas Fair. Add to that the fact that you’ll be lovely and warm, and can indulge in some delicious treats along the way and it’s difficult to find anyone who wouldn’t love a day at the fair.
