It’s that time of year ago folks. The Christmas tree is up in the Market Square and hand-decorated wreaths are starting to make an appearance on the cottage doors around the village. I love it when people do this because if there are any  doors that are perfect for Christmas wreaths it has to be those on the Cotswold cottages, such as the ones we have in Bampton (‘Downton’). In fact they look so beautiful that it is almost a sin not to hang a wreath – as long as it is a highly tasteful one of course that complements the brass knockers and stone surrounds! I’ll post some more Christmas wreath photos as the holiday season takes hold, just to give you an idea of what I’m talking about!

Bampton is a village in the Cotswolds that has risen to recent prominence by also being the fictional town of Downton in the British period drama Downton Abbey. Many external scenes are filmed in the village. In particular it is home to Downton hospital, the parish church and the manor house of the Dowager Countess of Grantham (played by Dame Maggie Smith).
