Christmas Short Stays In Cheltenham

Temperatures are dropping, the woolly scarves are coming out and mince pies are lining supermarket shelves: Christmas is just around the corner. In the coming weeks Gloucestershire will get well and truly into the festive spirit. Visit Cheltenham and stay in one of our luxury apartments for a spot of Christmas shopping, a trip to the races or explore the surrounding area.

Cheltenham offers something for everyone of all ages and tastes, from a mix of traditional and modern culture, to the eye-catching splendour of the Regency architecture.

The Promenade will once again be the attraction for both traders and visitors this Christmas for the annual market event. This year's festivities have been extended now starting on Thursday 5th December and continuing until Saturday 21st December 2013. There will be a huge range of designed wooden chalets selling a wide range of festive crafts and gifts situated in the beautiful setting of Cheltenham Promenade. Now in its eleventh year, 2013 offers an excellent opportunity for those with an eye for quality to experience one of the best Christmas Markets in the United Kingdom. Visitors from around the UK will continue to be attracted by a variety of products from hand crafted jewellery, seasonal arts & crafts and hand paintings, to the more unusual gifts and collectables.

 

The fully licensed German glühwein bar will also be in attendance, without which no Christmas Market would be complete! Tasty treats on offer will include traditional French crepes, a delicious selection of olives and German Bratwursts.

Spend a day at the races. Even on a cold, crisp day in December, the magic remains with two days of the hottest Jump racing around – this event takes place 13th and 14th December 2013.

If you would rather get out into the countryside and away from your luxury apartment; Cheltenham is the perfect base for a visit to Westonbirt. The trees in the National Arboretum will be all aglow this winter, brightly illuminated for the whole family to enjoy. Enjoy a night walk past the towering trees, with a glass of mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and carols from local choirs and bands. Finally there is also the Christmas market to explore complete with the Forest shop selling presents and decorations.

Whether visiting Cheltenham on business or leisure, Portland Apartments have just the right apartment for you and are the perfect base for events taking place in or around Cheltenham throughout the festive period.
