Christmas Breaks

Christmas Breaks

Enjoy your festive breaks at Norton House. There is plenty to do around the beautiful estate; from a wide range of traditional board games available in the house, leisurely swims in the pool to walking paths around the grounds for the more energetic. The Winter Wonderland in Princes Street Gardens provides entertainment for all ages, being particularly suited to those in need of retail therapy. We will also be happy to arrange pantomime tickets should you wish to see this year’s show of Aladdin.
