They wrote on Instagram: "Dick, Angel and the kids are exploring Colmar in the Alsace region, close to the German border. Here they discover an enchanting medieval town that makes Christmas feel more magical than ever.

"Once back at the Chateau the Strawbridge traditions are not forgotten – Angel, her mum Jenni, and Dorothy head out into the Chateau grounds to collect the fir and foliage to make the annual Christmas wreath. The huge Christmas tree that lights up the salon is decorated, and this year Angel can’t resist adding her specially made macramé baubles."
