Christmas at Rothbury

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 authentic 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 Lodgepole pines, 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 on the 2nd, 9th-11th and 16th-18th December. We'll be open from 9.30am through to 4pm.
