Dalegate Christmas market at Burnham Deepdale

I've never been to a Christmas market before, don't ask how, so when I heard about Dalegate Christmas market on Twitter I decided this year would be THE year. Where would I be without Twitter these days? It couldn't have been a better weekend for it; Saturday was cold and crisp but dry and the early morning frost had already put me in a slightly festive frame of mind.

We made it to Burnham Deepdale around 1:30 I guess and found it in full swing. Fortunately the parking was well managed so it didn't take long to get in. It was definitely a day for big coats, hats, gloves and scarves so after wrapping up suitably we hit the first of the stalls.

The lure of a hot drink was irresistible so we sought out some rather quickly; Chris had a hot chocolate and I had a mint hot chocolate with extra cream... it was so good. Suitably warmed up we continued on round the stands. There was such a great mix of different things for sale, an awful lot of beautiful local produce which was so inspiring to see. From cupcakes, cheeses, beer and spirits to handcrafted pottery, woodwork, metalwork, clothes and accessories, jewellery, photography and artwork to dog coats, home furnishings and everything in between. It made for excellent browsing as well as a good selection of food and drink pitches too (we had a hog roast) and I may also of had a cup of warm spiced fruit punch too.

So what did we buy? Well, much as I'd love to tell you some of them are presents and I wouldn't want to ruin any surprises.

I'm returning next year for more of the same.

  5. I stayed in Burnham Deepdale once in a lovely little place above a ship garage - I think they have an actual name but it escapes me now.
    Let me know when it's on next year, it looks worth a trip!
