About Getting ready for Christmas

Helping Wray Castle get ready for the biggest and best family experiences at Christmas.

From gathering foliage and dried flowers for garland making to making Father Christmas’s grotto as magical as possible, you’ll be getting involved in all sorts of festive preparation in and around this extraordinary building.

The Longland is made up of three buildings with a large common room with log burner and separate blocks for the dormitories and shower block. The Acland is a self-contained single building. There are large private grounds with a fire pit and barbecue areas.

Facilities: garden, drying room, open fire/woodburner.

Bedding: No bedding/linen provided.
