Christmas at Moors Valley

Our sustainably grown, high quality Christmas trees are 100% Santa Approved! Come to the forest to choose your perfect tree and mark the start of the festive period with an traditional day out with the family.

Choosing your perfect Christmas tree

When you visit, our friendly, expert staff will help you choose from our selection of Nordmann firs and Norway Spruces! Our high quality, sustainable Christmas trees all come with a 100% Santa Approved certificate, so you know that you're getting the very best tree.

Pick one, plant one!

To highlight the importance of sustainable forestry, you'll receive a free Christmas tree sapling with every purchase! Keep it well watered, and care for it well, and that sapling will grow into a big, strong Christmas tree.

Opening dates and times

We will be trading 2nd-18th December, or until trees are sold out. We estimate this to be around 11th December, so get here early!

Our opening times at 10am-4pm.

It's not all about the trees

It's not all about the trees! To get into the festive spirit, choose from craft activities, fairy tales in the woods, the Elves and Shoemaker Christmas pantomime, Go Ape Tree Top Junior or Santa Specials on the Moors Valley Railway!

Many of our activities will be managed by our partners, so to discover the full programme and book activites visit
