About Santa’s Farm Yard Cottage

8th, 9th, and daily from 14th - 24th December

Once again, it's the time of the year when dear old Santa Claus visits Almond Valley and settles into his comfortable farmyard cottage within a chilly midwinter forest. He’ll be welcoming young visitors, and handing out some early Christmas presents. Much of Almond Valley will be decorated for the season and there will be a special chance to try your hand at Christmas crafts. Almond Valley is open as usual throughout the period, but all visits to Santa need to be booked in advance. Santa tickets, including a good quality gift, costs £6 (£4 for Friends members) including admission to Almond Valley and free admission for accompanying adults.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Santa’s Farm Yard Cottage are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
