It may be early, but we are looking ahead to Christmas here at one of the best boutique hotels, Cornwall, especially with all the preparation that goes into it. One event just around the corner is Cornwall's leading Christmas fair, returning once again to the Eden Project.

get ready for the Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair near our boutique hotels, Cornwall

On Wednesday, November 16 and Thursday, November 17, you can load up on your Christmas gifts at the Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair.

Following the record-breaking fair in 2015, where over £55,000 was raised to help the county's cancer patients, the Eden Kitchen will once again be the host to the vibrant fair, with stalls laden with gifts, decorations, home accessories, jewellery, clothing, food and drink.

Organisers rotate which stallholders appear at the fair each year, so there is always something new and different to look out for. Organisers have assembled a stunning array of sellers for 2016, some appearing for the first time. You can purchase personalised travel accessories, gorgeous scarves, soft furnishings, home fragrances, beautiful locally made china, and artisan perfumes, to name but a few.

The food hall is also not a place to miss, where you can discover a range of spirits and beers brewed locally at South Western Distillery and St Austell Brewery, festive cakes, and even a selection of hand harvested Cornish seaweed.

However, the Fair is more than Christmas shopping. In its 25th year, the event has become a cornerstone is raising funds for Cornwall Macmillan. Jane Hartley, Co-Chairman of the Christmas Fair Committee said: "Over the last 24 years we have raised in excess of £524,000 for Cornwall Macmillan and are hugely grateful to our team of volunteers for working so tirelessly.

"Little did the Fair founder and now President Lady Mary Holborow know what she was setting in motion when she hosted the first Macmillan Christmas Fair in her own home all those years ago."

Ticket prices for the fair are: Wednesday 16 November, preview and shopping evening 5pm-9.30pm: £25 (includes wine and supper), and Thursday 17 November, 10am-4pm: £15 (includes admission to Eden, a light lunch and a glass of wine/soft drink).

If you are looking to visit the Christmas Fair, book at stay at one of the best boutique hotels, Cornwall, close to the Eden Project, and enjoy a luxury stay and fine dining with a delicious three-course meal.
