Maxine there is a National Trust place near here called Styal Mill (built in the 1800s) and they do an Xmas theme afternoon there, where you get to hear "The Night Before Christmas" by an open fire in one of the cottages, stir the Xmas pudding mix in the kitchen and drink some hot punch. Very atmospheric!
