This is set within 30 acres of private parkland and the intimate location will be lit up by hundreds of candles.

The performers will be The Agnes Collective who have sung in some of Britain’s top music venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Opera House and Glyndebourne.

Guests are invited to create their own family festive tradition and choose from the three performance dates with a fine festive lunch or an indulgent afternoon tea. Alternatively, visitors can make an evening of it with a delicious dinner.

Lunch seating costs £67. Visitors arrive at 12.30pm for a two-course lunch with a glass of wine, followed by coffee and festive nibbles in the chapel at 1.30pm with the carol performance at 2pm.
