Santa’s Magic Grot


COVID UPDATE - We are just in the process of discussing additional dates to offer a transfer of any November bookings into December. Full refunds will be given to anyone unable to make the new dates and everyone will be contacted when we have a confirmed plan in place.

We’d like to thank you for your patience and reassure you that we are working hard to avoid any disappointment.

Santa’s Magical grotto is back at Sledmere for a special 2020 Christmas adventure. Once again, the grotto will be set in the atmospheric, traditional Home Farm buildings and the anticipation and excitement of our magical journey to Santa will be better than ever.

Bookings will be made in ‘Christmas bubbles’. Each bubble can contain a minimum of two people and a maximum six people and there will be 5 bubbles available per half an hour session.

In your bubble, you’ll be able to explore the grotto, be enchanted by the magical journey to Santa and meet the Elves along the way.

Santa will be waiting for you in his North Pole office ready to tell you a special Christmas story with the help of his chief Elves, the children will be able to tell him what’s on their wish list this year and also let him know how nice they’ve been in order to be granted access into the Elves VIP Toy Store to choose your very own gift from Santa!

Grotto ticket includes:

Entry into the Magical grotto taking you on an enchanted journey to see Santa.

Santa’s special story time.

A photo opportunity with Santa and his Elves.

A gift chosen by the children from our VIP Elf toy store.

Free access into the Grounds and Gardens, our Rare Breeds Farm Park and Adventure Play Area.

A chance to meet our beautiful herd of Red Deer up close and perhaps even get the opportunity to feed them!

Our coach house cafe will be open for hot drinks and offering a delicious winter festive menu. The Woodyard Christmas shop is bigger and better than ever before and is and absolute must! So why not make day of it and experience all the wonder 'Sledmere at Christmas' has to offer?
