Winter Holidays in Ginborn

Ginborn provides the perfect location if you are looking for a traditional ‘winter’ holiday as opposed to an ‘alpine skiing’ holiday. Certainly our son’s first experience of real snow was here and all they did was play in it; a memory that will last a lifetime with stories that get told and re-told over and over as they have grown up.
(A white Christmas cannot be guaranteed but there's not been a green February ever.)
