Christmas at Birches Valley

Latest News (09/12/2017 14:49)

The Met Office have issued an Amber weather warning for snow which is likely to cause disruption to travel and a good chance of rural communities being cut off. We are open until 5pm today but all facilities, trails and Christmas Centre at Birches Valley will be closed on Sunday 10th December. We will continue to review the weather and local conditions for the week ahead and keep you updated.

As experts in trees Santa has given our Christmas trees his 100% approval! That's because Santa knows that when you pick your perfect tree in our magical woodland settings, it will be of the highest quality and grown in a sustainable manner in the UK.
