Christmas Grotto!

Poster about Tam O'Shanter's Christmas Grotto 2017

Tam O’Shanter’s Christmas Grotto 2017

The Christmas Grotto this year will run on the 10th and 17th December between 11:30 am – 3:30 pm.

At the moment the price is set to be £3.50, to include a visit with Santa and a gift. You are welcome to take photos. The Grotto is very graciously being run by our friends at the Masons, whose support we appreciate greatly, and decorated with the kindly donated trees and decorations given to us after last Christmas. As there are two sessions, tickets are not being sold in advance this year. Just turn up and pay on the door; if there’s a queue, take a ticket and have a cuppa while you wait.

There are some opportunities to hire the room for group visits during opening hours, if you have your own gifts and Santa and leave the room as you would wish to find it. The cost will be £1 per participating child, in aid of farm funds. Dates available as of 22nd November are 11th to 16th (14th a.m. only). For any queries send an email to

Christmas Carols with the Salvation Army!

On Wednesday 20th December at 6pm we are delighted to welcome back the Salvation Army to celebrate the season with carols on the farmyard. The path to the farmyard is lit, but please bring a torch if you are walking down the lane, and wrap up warm. We hope you can join us; there will be a collection, to be shared between the farm and the Salvation Army, whose support is warmly welcomed.
