Top Commenter : Steph from Renovation Bay-Bee. 

Longleat Safari Park put on a magical festive light show which combined with a Santa visit looked an amazing pre Christmas day out enjoyed by Steph at Renovation Bay-Bee

Mottisfont Abbey had a wonderful 12 days of Christmas trail running which Sherry from Life at Cooks Cabin completed. I’m seriously considering copying this one at Coombe Mill for Christmas this year. 

The December year end Rockfish winner is Steph from Renovation Bay-Bee. There were some gorgeous Christmas posts to choose from and some great top commenters making this decision so hard. In the end the lovely night photos and mix of activities during the day made this post my favourite. Well done Steph. Please take a look at the lovely Rockfish site and email or DM me your choice from the items in stock.
