Join the Ark Open Farm for a truly magical Santa experience this Christmas!
Santa will arrive on Saturday 30 November onboard his sleigh pulled by one of the farm's very own reindeer Sven!
The Ark Open Farm are the only open farm to have a full family of real Reindeer which you can get up close to pet and feed. The farm is lit up with twinkling Christmas lights and Christmas music will be playing around the farmyard to get you into the spirit.
You can toast marshmallows, take part in the nativity scene with real animals, join the elves in their workshop, cuddle rabbits, chicks and guinea pigs and so much to see and do but the most important of all, watch Santa appear from the chimney and join him in his grotto!
The Cottage Cafe will also be open serving a variety of homemade winter warmers; hot food, home baking, hot drinks, and mulled wine to keep you cosy during your visit.
There's many ways for you to visit Santa at the farm :-
- Santa’s Grotto in the daytime
- After Dark on selected evenings (including Autism and ASN friendly Quiet Nights)
- Breakfast with Santa on a Sunday morning
- Mother and Tots Mornings
