Join us for winter weekends at Acorn Bank

Christmas fairy door at Acorn Bank

It wouldn’t be Christmas without the magic atmosphere that surrounds Acorn Bank! Come and join us to create your very own Christmas memories and family traditions with us. There is something for everyone, from Christmas carols to wreath making and sugar craft, from storytelling to decorating a tree for the birds.

Enter into the festive spirit with our family trail that will take you through the grounds of Acorn Bank and discover what the fairies have been up to this Christmas. 
Father Christmas liked Acorn Bank so much last year that he’s decided to visit us again this year! He’ll be staying in his cosy cottage, surrounded by presents that he’ll give out to all of the good children who will pay him a visit.

It wouldn’t be Christmas with some shopping and good food too, so don’t miss our shop and tea room, where you can warm up with hot drinks, soup and cake. Or enjoy hot Christmas punch and shortbread in the drawing room while you listen to our local choirs sing.

Create memories that will last a lifetime, take pictures, share moments, sing along, make a gift with your own hands, spend time together.

Whatever you decide to do, we wish you a very special Christmas!
