The information below relates to our Christmas 2022 offer. Please keep an eye on this page to see what is happening next.

Christmas in the countryside

You can wrap up warm and take the family around the countryside on the winter fairy door trail.

The wider estate is the perfect setting for winter walks and bike rides if you have a bit more time. Our cycle trails are open throughout the festive season; check the cycle hire opening times for bike and helmet hire.

You can warm up afterwards with festive food by the wood burner in the Park Café. Don’t forget those last minute gifts from our shop.

Meet Father Christmas in the woodland grotto

Father Christmas is paying a visit to the Lanhydrock hub this year in his very own magical woodland cottage. You can book your visit here. New for this year, your doggie pals can come along to meet Father Christmas and receive their own wrapped gift as well. Just choose one of the doggie ticket options on the bookings page.
