Visited here as part of a tour. Don't bother. It's very bizarre and everything is so expensive. Not sure that I can write much more as it is a poor experience

We didn't really know what the Christmas House was going in and thought we were in for a touristy and cheesy experience, but found it delightful. There is a giant walk-in advent calendar. There are all sorts of cute outdoors Christmas displays. It wasn't crowded,...More

This is a cute and charming Christmas Garden, however, more than likely must more enjoyable during our visit of November with snow - making it feel a lot like Christmas. Worth a gander.

A very expensive place to visit with very little being locally made crafts. Many items from the UK produced just a few miles from home with very over inflated prices. Purely a tourist trap

Beautiful Christmas Garden with beautiful christmas items to look at. Fun for all family members to enjoy. The christmas ornaments are very expensive though, so it's more to look at than to buy.
