A Stonehurst Manor Vintage Christmas
Dear to our hearts and best celebrated in the company of the closest friends and family, Christmas has become a holiday of colorful traditions, from family fruit cake and bread pudding recipes to carol singing and trimmed trees. Celebrants around the world light up December with merriment in anticipation of Christmas. At Stonehurst Manor, we and our guests celebrate the season with a holiday tradition which dates back more than two hundred years.
During the Christmas season, Stonehurst Manor sparkles with a collection of vintage Christmas decorations. For years, guests staying at Stonehurst have brought decorations from every corner of the world to help decorate the manor. Stonehurst’s collection features a history of ornaments, which date from as early as the late nineteenth century to present day. The majority of Stonehurst Manor’s early collection came from Germany as tokens of appreciation from European travelers. As has become Stonehurst’s tradition, each year, the unique multitude of decorations adorns the manor throughout the holiday season, and every year the collection grows as guests continue to bring Christmas ornaments to Stonehurst. The lovely vintage decorations not only complement the manor’s decor, but they also connect the guests and staff to the hotel’s rich history.
Bringing us closer to the people who came before us and the places they came from, traditions connect us all to our past.
