Whilst the festive season may already feel like a very long time ago, the memories created by a Hallsannery Christmas and New Year hopefully live on.

Our 2016 Christmas guests came to Hallsannery a few years ago and loved it so much they decided to come back. With three generations of the same family filling the farmhouse kitchen with the aroma of turkey and trimmings, luxuriating over Christmas lunch in the candlelit dining room and enjoying evenings of games and chat in front of the fire, Hallsannery was the most gorgeous backdrop for their yuletide festivities.

‘We have had a wonderful Christmas, thank you! We’d love to come back in 2018’ they said in our Guest Book… and, true to their word, they have booked again, and we cannot wait to welcome them back.

New Year, meanwhile, saw some longstanding friends celebrating a special birthday, with an ‘over-New Year’ stay at Hallsannery House. Inviting friends and family from all over the UK, Mr 50th Birthday enjoyed entertaining his guests with impromptu football matches on Instow beach, blow-away-the-cobwebs walks at Westward Ho!, an impressive birthday tea and copious games of (young and old!) hide and seek. With the accompaniment of not a little fine wine and champagne, 2017 was welcomed in with canapes, speeches, a three course feast and Bideford’s spectacular firework display enjoyed from Hallsannery’s lawns… a most incredible end to one year, and beginning of another.

Thanks to the Bowes family for leaving us these lovely words…

‘What a celebration and what a perfect few days in the perfect location. Hallsannery is a wonderful place; Hannah and Charles, it is amazing what you have done… Everyone LOVED the house. Thank you so much for everything. Truly special’
