Hatchlands Park 

Hatchlands is the place for a really family-friendly outdoor experience at Christmas. Meet Father Christmas in his cosy vintage living room, snuggle up to the farm animals when they visit, sing carols and exploring the trail around the woods. The new trail tells the touching story of resident donkeys Morris and Callum enjoying their first Christmas.
