Very well organised, Santa’s grotto is very well dressed and professional, lots of photos to be taken with the animals as well.

Excellent value for money. Lovely day for children lots to do. The reindeers and other animals are clean and well looked after. Winter wonderland and santa was lovely.

We stayed twenty minutes because it was shabby, dirty, expensive and just depressing and grim. I can see lots of people have given it amazing reviews but I genuinely can't understand what they are talking about. I hate giving bad reviews but this is going...More

A great activity for Christmas. Visited with two friends and our three little boys who are all close to turning two. They probably could have spent all day playing with all the toys, however after three hours outdoors the weather forced us home. Didn’t have...More

Took my two grandsons to the centre. Was shocked at the price. No problem with the cost for the children (£16 each), but to charge the adults £10 each was disappointing.The two four years old had to have adults with them so the real cost...More

My 2 daughters and I took 2 grandchildren to the Reindeer centre 16th December. It was as expected very busy. A bit expensive but then the animals need to be fed and looked after so acceptable. The large animals, reindeer, llamas, alpacas and donkeys were...More

When we was there we found out that they are open on the 25th December by appointment only so I don't know if that is there last day or they do any other days in the New Year. Sorry I can't be of more help to you.
