Have you ever thought of Christmas away? Somewhere with plenty going on for the children, farm animals to feed each day, train rides each afternoon, 30 acres of play areas and meadows, a dabble at fishing in the river or the lakes, cosy winter evenings chilling out by the log burner and some real quality family time.
Take a good look at our website and perhaps watch the video here from last Christmas on the farm then enter our competition below, see if your imagination will carry you to a family Christmas on the farm and turn you into our lucky winner.

What we are looking for in our winning entry
The winning entry will be the entry that feels like the person has understood what Coombe Mill is all about and translated this into a family Christmas time to cherish. It is not about the best picture or the most articulate piece, but the one that embraces the Coombe Mill family experience. The holiday will be for a week from 20 – 27th December for a family of up to 6 plus cots in a Coombe Mill cottage or Scandinavian lodge selected by Coombe Mill.
