There are almost 800 Guild Member agents in the UK; this Christmas, we thought we would showcase some of the most festive sounding locations and how to get in touch with the nearest Guild agent.
Cold Christmas is a Hamlet in Thundridge, Hertfordshire. Just over ten minutes from Hertford and just under ten minutes from Ware, Thundridge is a great, quiet home for commuters who can be in the capital within the hour.
Cold Christmas’ claim to fame is the ruins of Little St Mary’s Church, nicknamed Cold Christmas Church. It dates back to 1086 and is famous for rumoured hauntings!
If the paranormal isn’t for you, there is plenty of festive activities to enjoy, including a The Ware Dickensian Evening in early December and the Hertford Christmas Gala at the end of November.
If Cold Christmas has captured your imagination, take a look at Ensum Brown Estate Agent’s website to further explore Ware and Thundridge.

No matter the time of year, there is no mistaking the red nosed hero of Christmas hiding out in this street in Bolton. This town in Greater Manchester is a former mill town, which means there is a rich past to delve into at the museum.

Clementine Walk, Woodford Green
There’s several explanations for the iconic clementine at the bottom of our stockings, the simplest being they were once a very scarce treat. Whatever the reason, there is no denying there’s usually a clementine laying around the fruit bowl.
Clementine Walk is in Woodford Green, in the London Borough of Redbridge and not far from Essex. Surrounded by forests, lakes, country parks and open spaces yet only 35 minutes from London, this town has so much to offer – not to mention a Beauty and the Beast at the pantomime this season!
