Capernwray is a beautiful place at any time of year but with the addition of Christmas trees, lights and decorations, with the fires blazing and the house full with people, it becomes a really spectacular place to be. We would love you to join us as we celebrate Christmas together and focus on the advent of Jesus Christ.
