A Magical Family Christmas at Rufford Old Hall

Spend a wonderful winters day with us.

The Hesketh family have invited friends and family for Christmas dinner and we invite you to step inside Rufford Old Hall as this wonderful country house is decorated for Christmas.

A warm welcome awaits as you enter this magnificent house, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Step into in the Dining Room, where the Hesketh family and guests have just stepped out of the room between courses. Visit the Study and try your hand at after dinner games which the gentlemen in the party have planned, whilst upstairs, peep into the Dressing Room as the Ladies’ Maid prepares Lady Hesketh’s room for the night.

Meanwhile, children are invited to meet Father Christmas in his grotto where he’ll hear their Christmas wishes. Then it’s off through the gardens for a donkey ride in the paddock.

There’s also a festive children’s trail, a chance to make your own 2016 calendar in our craft session and to treat yourself to a delicious mince pie and hot chocolate in the tea room. Finally don’t forget to drop into the shop to browse our great range of Christmas gifts before heading home.
