Dalby Forest offers a great Christmas experience.  Escape from the shops, gather up your friends and family and feel the crisp, fresh air in the Great Yorkshire Forest.

There is no better way to get in the Christmas spirit then to visit the forest and choose your tree. Get your real, British grown tree from our sales centre.  You will receive a warm welcome and expert advice about how to select and care for your families tree.

We offer Spruce and Fir Christmas Trees, all grown in britain and are available from £15. Wreaths, Mistletoe and Holly will also be available from £3.50.

Why not enjoy a hot drink and mince pie from our cafe after you have picked your prefect tree. Why not keep the kids entertain with our christmas trail, christmas crafts or visit Santa in his Grotto.

Disappointed - no dogs anymore. This was the main attraction for me. Didn't buy a tree as they are just as nice nearer to home.

Thank you for your comments. We agree that the dogs are great; unfortunately we’ve struggled to find suitable accommodation for them in the area. All of our Christmas Trees are locally grown and we hope our visitors enjoy the escape from busy shops when they come to Dalby to purchase their tree. Thank you.
