Christmas Trees

Decking the Halls at The Cottage in the Wood

The Cottage in the Wood, a beautiful Georgian hotel, restaurant and spa based in Malvern, is independently owned by Nick and Julia Davies, and offers its guests panoramic views across the Cotswolds, Vale of Evesham and Severn Valley.


Festive Lights met the hotel’s owners at the Great Hospitality Show at the NEC in January of 2017; they were looking to transform the entrance area, hallway, and bar / restaurant for the festive period, and wanted to create a show-stopping Christmas display to wow their guests.

The hotel owners were eager to find the perfect products at a reasonable price for their seasonal display, and we were happy to be able to provide a complete solution which met, and exceeded, their expectations.



The vision for the display was to create a great visual impact, whilst at the same time maintaining a sophisticated aesthetic that was in keeping with the hotel’s style. We provided connectable garlands and baubles, in red and gold, for the entrance, which gave the ‘wow’ factor as people entered the hotel; there was a large pre-lit Christmas tree, along with more garlands and baubles, positioned in the hallway.



Several decorations were also placed in the bar and restaurant, to continue the festive feeling, whilst still focusing on, and enhancing, the hotel’s impressive design features.



The decorations were a big hit with the guests, with the striking entrance display in particular receiving a fantastic reaction. Julia and Nick were delighted and commented, “This is the first time we’ve ordered from Festive lights and it was a great experience. The service was amazing and we’re happy with the products.”



The garlands will be used again in this year’s festive transformation, and the plan is to create a different visual display, using a new colour scheme and more lights.

We can’t wait to work with the Cottage in the Wood team again and to see the hotel in all its festive glory once again.
