Grab a mince pie (or two) and maybe even a glass of mulled wine if you’re feeling especially jolly and head on down to one of these wonderful events. Make the most of the outdoors with plenty of events at Studland beach throughout December or shop till you drop at various Christmas fairs and markets. Whatever you choose, December is a busy month for all so be sure to take some time to relax, plan a weekend away in a holiday cottage and make the most of enjoying the festive season.
If heading out into the cold really isn't your thing why not stay in and try some Christmas baking or cook up some Christmas leftovers? One of the many perks of choosing self catering is that you have a beautiful kitchen to use as and when you like. Make the most of it.
Here are some of my favourite events across Dorset in December:
