The weeks leading up to Christmas are always crazy, so what could be nicer than to do your Christmas shopping at a picturesque and oh so chilled out country village Christmas Market located in the heart of Mid Canterbury?
The Marvellous Mayfield Christmas Market launched last December and was a huge success.
The crowd who attended loved the setting - an iconic country village Hall surrounded by a park-like setting offering lots of shade and relaxation. But the thing that the Mayfield Christmas Market visitors loved the most were the stalls.
Gorgeous quality stalls selling everything you could think of from quirky rustic bird houses through to hand made soaps, outdoor rocking chairs, sensationally scented soy candles, children's clothing and accessories, hand-crafted wooden toys, beautiful jewellery, lavender plants and products, old fashioned confectionery, vintage collectables, repurposed homewares, metal sculpture, garden art, and so many other wonderful stalls that would make even the fussiest Christmas gift shopper smile!
Refreshments are also a feature of the Marvellous Mayfield Christmas Market including yummy Devonshire Teas, nationally famous Staveley Sausage Rolls, ice creams and cool drinks and of course for those punters who want something more substantial there's the wonderful Panther's Rock café just a one minute stroll away.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy some live entertainment in keeping with the Christmas season and Santa has promised to make a visit in the afternoon and share some treats with the youngsters.
Make a day of it and spend some quality time checking out the other attractions of Mayfield Village - there's the great display of cow-themed merchandise at the 'Udder Dairy' and of course no visit to Mayfield village is complete without a browse around 'Overflow' - the vintage store that has everyone talking
