Every weekend from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 17th December, join us for our Winter Weekends!

Our elves are busy decking the halls at the Deer Barns, getting ready for three consecutive weekends of festive fun!

Located in and around the Deer Barns Visitor Centre and Café, an exclusive gathering of up to 15 stalls featuring independent makers and small businesses will be selling a wide range of wonderful products, including jewellery, accessories, candles, craft cider, local wines, dog treats, woodcraft, artwork and prints, chocolates and baked goods.

🎄 Collect a children’s festive trail from the Newtown Linford entrance and stretch your legs! Discover the nesting boxes along the carriageway, collect your stamps, and solve the mystery word to collect your reward sticker at the Visitor Centre!

Get crafty in the Visitor Centre making your very own decorations, a perfect keepsake for years to come!

🎅 Santa will be in his enchanting grotto with the elves, awaiting all the children for their visit - pre-booked tickets only (NOW SOLD OUT)

❄️ Keep warm with hot food and drinks at the Deer Barns Café and Bradgate Park Stalls.
