The sun was actually shining as we arrived for our annual visit to the Winter Fair at Picton Castle. As usual we headed straight for the castle before the crowds arrived so we were able to wander through the magnificent building unhindered by other guests! The decorations throughout the castle were amazing as usual. Every room , every Christmas tree, every display showed the hard work , effort and care that is taken to make visiting the castle such a wonderful experience- a true festival of the senses. The small string orchestra playing in the hall in front of the blazing log fire set the scene for the whole house…it was all magic!
Added to the splendour of visiting the castle there was the pleasure of walking around and seeing the many stalls. There was a beautiful display of cloisonné jewellery made by Annette Gardener http://www.kittiwake-enamels.co.uk which I particularly loved!
All this to enjoy and it’s open tomorrow too!
