Santa will use Makaton during these visits, lighting will be adjusted, and sound effects will be lowered. Grotto times and animal tour times will be longer and crowd levels will be capped.

First Christmas Experience - This will automatically be applied to any mid-week booking until the 17th December up until 4pm each day for any children aged 4 and under.

What is the Quiet Christmas experience?


We are excited to offer a quiet Christmas event for visitors who may require a more relaxed experience. This takes place on Tuesday 30th November and Wednesday 1st December and tickets are now on sale. We are hoping to be able to help make the Santa’s grotto experience fun for everyone. There will be longer grotto times which will be tailored as best we can to suit our visitors needs and the Farm Park will be calm and quiet, with reduced music and lighting to ensure a relaxed environment. Santa will communicate using basic, festive Makaton sign language. Any advice or recommendations for our event will be warmly received. Please note this event must be booked in advance and ticket numbers are limited.




What is the Baby's First Christmas experience?


We're offering a magical Christmas experience for tiny tots with a relaxed grotto session, no long queues, baby-friendly sensory equipment and soft play, relaxed Christmas stories with Mrs Claus or her elves, and the chance to make a personalised handmade keepsake for your tree. This experience is automatically added to any qualifying bookings with children of preschool age on all midweek bookings until 4pm, all the way up to the 17th December.
