Waddesdon Manor at Christmas

It hunted for keyword data to analyse which homes offered the best festive events for its guests.

Waddesdon Manor scored highly for its mulled wine, cheeses, chocolate and crafts and with less restrictions in place, a Christmas market returns this year.

TripAdvisor user 'Yeading Pete' said: "What a fantastic day out, the Christmas market and the winter light trail are just stunning.

"Best part of the day was the manor being lit up to music in front of the stunning Christmas trees. Staff are incredibly helpful too and it is great value for money. I could not fault the whole experience in any way."

The nine top venues

In total, Waddesdon Manor racked up 462 festive 5* reviews.

Only two destinations bettered that mark: Longleat House in Wiltshire and Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
