Santa’s knocking on our oast cowl – open the hatch!

As Christmas approaches and wish lists are being scribbled and posted to Father Christmas,what about families that live in an oast house, without a chimney?

Surely Santa should know that he can still bring them gifts too, even if they don’t have a chimney, right? Well we think so!

So if you live in an oast house and have young children, or just find this a funny story – then check out our ‘letter to Santa’ below…..

Santa-Chimney-Dec 2015

Dear Santa,

Today at school we learnt that you deliver our Christmas presents by jumping down the chimney into the lounge of people’s houses. It sounds like a great way to spend Christmas Eve.

Mum and Dad have told us that our house is very special, and that not everyone lives in an old oast house, so I don’t know if you have visited one before. The problem is, we don’t have a chimney.

Don’t be nervous, you can still land your sleigh nearby and use the hatch in our oast cowl. Don’t eat too many mince pies though, you might not fit! My Mum and Dad said they will be leaving out sherry for you and a carrot for Rudolph and the rest of your reindeer, so don’t forget them when you shoot back up our oast cowl.

oh, and parking could be a little tricky too, so maybe best not park on the roof!

Thanks Santa x
