'Tis the season? Well, it very nearly is.

We're just over a week away from December which is typically the time UK households put their Christmas trees up.

Some keen beans opt to erect their tree earlier, but if you still haven't, then why not go all this year?

You could pull the same old artificial tree from your attic, there is something special about buying a real tree- especially when you buy it from a local business in Cumbria.

There are a variety of shapes, sizes and types to choose from to suit all of your personal preferences.
