Christmas at Longshaw

Christmas tree sales at Ilam Park and Longshaw

Longshaw has a long tradition of selling quality Christmas trees to local villagers and people from Sheffield. And while you're here, why not enjoy a family walk, or take part in one of our Christmas craft events in the cosy Moorland Discovery Centre?

This year, sales begin on Saturday 26 November and continue every day from 10 til 4.

By buying your tree from Longshaw not only will you be getting a high quality tree but you'll also be supporting the conservation work of the National Trust to keep Longshaw lovely.  

We’ve been busy making reindeer and wreaths from sustainable materials found on the Longshaw estate.  What better way to bring some Christmas cheer to your home and support our work?

Why not make a day of it and bring the family to take part in our festive traditions?

Explore the wintery woods and follow our reindeer trail around our Christmas tree sales area in the grounds of the Moorland Discovery Centre.

Or venture a bit futher and discover how the Boggarts of Longshaw celebrate Christmas in style on the Boggart trail (50p from the shop for a Boggart Trail).
