Santa to arrive at Sacrewell Farm by Shire horse and carriage

Have your say

How does Father Christmas get around while his reindeer are resting up for Christmas Eve? Well, at Sacrewell Farm at least, by Shire horse and carriage, of course.

Father Christmas himself will once again be arriving at Sacrewell in style on Saturday (November 29, 10.30am), the first day of the centre’s Christmas event.

Sacrewell’s traditional Father Christmas, who won the accolade of “best Father Christmas ever” from one enthusiastic visitor, and will meet and greet all visitors by the fireside as he takes time to talk to each child about what they would like for Christmas, gives presents and poses for family photographs.

For an all-inclusive price, visitors will be dropped off for the first time ever at the farm’s Georgian farmhouse after taking a shuttle sleigh ride on our rosy-nosed tractor, where Father Christmas will be greeting his guests in the cosy sitting room.

He’ll be there every weekend and then daily from December 13 to 24.

You can visit the donkeys in the farm’s living Nativity scene in the Animal Village, try your hand at traditional Christmas decorations, browse craft and gifts from local traders and of course, make the most of the winter by exploring Sacrewell.

Prices also include entry to our new Playbarn where children can let off some steam and parents can enjoy a soothing hot drink.

An all-inclusive price of £9 per child covers all day entry to Sacrewell, a tractor ride and a present.
