If shopping outside in the cold isn’t your ideal Christmas activity then you can enjoy Christmas shopping in the warmth of the historic Parlour Rooms at Stowe. From 12 November to 16 December, the Parlour Rooms will be filled with various local artisans, artists and hand-made food producers. There will be different stallholders every other day, selling home-made door garlands, cushions, scented candles, chutneys, chocolates and liqueurs.
