A wonderful 18th century landscape garden which has been successfully restored to its former glory, Hestercombe is now home to Somerset's most popular Christmas market. Set amongst forty acres of beautiful terraces, walled gardens, woodland, follies and water features, the market is comprised of sixty stalls selling hand made gifts, local produce, decorations, greetings cards, mince pies, roasted chestnuts and mulled wine. There are children's entertainers and trails to follow in the gardens, and live Christmas carols complete the picture. It's nowhere near the largest market in the UK but it rates highly for English country atmosphere.
