The fun-filled breakfast includes waffles with bananas, blueberries and chocolate sauce. As well as apple or orange juice! After your tasty breakfast, you can also enjoy indoor play!
What time can I visit from?
You are more than welcome to arrive at the farm any time from when we open at 10AM to make the most of the indoor play area, exploring the farm barns and you can also enjoy a festive bite to eat in the courtyard. We just ask that you are back at the entrance for your ten-minute timeslot to be collected by our elf!
Can I take photos?
We encourage photos to be taken around the Christmas Event. For family photos with Santa, you're more than welcome to take photos. We do ask you reframe from taking photos/videos during Santa's group storytelling to make this special moment magical for you and other groups. After the storytelling, you're more than welcome to take your own photo with Santa if you'd rather, just be mindful to leave enough time for other groups to have the same opportunity.
Can I transfer/move dates once booked?
Please double-check your dates before booking as we cannot transfer dates for this event once booked.
Is the event indoors?
Santa's Secret Farm HQ is undercover inside our barns, however, they are unheated so it's important to dress up warm.
Is the rest of the Farm open?
At this time of year, our farm animals are staying dry and warm inside the barns so exploring the farm will take considerably less time than in spring or summer when you might spend up to 4 hours exploring.
This event is pre-bookable only, so book online to secure your place, as numbers will be limited.
Please dress appropriately - this event is under shelter but outdoor temperatures.
This event is aimed towards children from 18 months to 12 years, all children must be accompanied by an adult
Our full terms and conditions can be found here.
Discover NEW arrivals at the farm, our BIGGEST year of additions yet! Here you'll discover the milking parlour just off the Cow Barn. Many of the farm animals will be sheltering in the barns during the winter weather.
