Bonfire Special

Stay for the week of November the 2nd and join in with our amazing bonfire party on the 3rd. We start the evening fun early for the benefit of our younger guests with a family BBQ and drinks at 4.30pm. As the sun sets (of course it never rains) and the stars come out, so we enjoy a few sparklers while Farmer Nick lights the bonfire with our topical Guy Fawkes and finally pulls off an amazing firework display to rival any organised event! Always an evening to remember.

Christmas Fun

You'll find plenty of Christmas cheer as our tree lights go up for a fun and festive season. All our properties have real Christmas Trees with light and a box of decorations ready for you to finish in your family time. Santa really does stop here; join in our Christmas Eve celebrations as we welcome Father Christmas into his Grotto on the Coombe Mill Railway.

Then we open our house to all our guests for family drinks and supper. A casual evening full of Christmas sparkle! The festivities carry on into Christmas Day as Farmer Nick dons his Santa outfit for the tractor rides to give the animals their Christmas breakfast, extra for the deer as they have been hard at work on Christmas Eve!
