Reindeer by Night

It is not just the little ones that love to see our reindeer, especially at this festive time of year. Reindeer by Night is designed for adults to experience the reindeer lodge without children around. The night allows you to get up close to our herd and while Santa and his elves have the night off. The Reindeer Man will be giving his talks throughout the night by our roaring fire, to tell his more adventurous stories and experiences with reindeer not suitable for little ears.

Included in the ticket is of course a mince pie and cup of mulled wine, which will be served on in our large indoor barn. Located inside the barn will also be festive carol singers to get you in the Christmas Spirit, so be ready to use those vocal cords. Additionally, located in the barn will also be local arts and craft stalls, providing the perfect opportunity to browse for Christmas Presents! Our Christmas shop will also be open through the night and allowing you to start or maybe even finish your Christmas shopping.

Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked in advance via our online booking system.

Reindeer by Night Events are 18+ event and ID may be requested at the ticket office on arrival. Failure to show any identification when requested may result in a refusal of entry to the lodge.
