Come see Santa, Mrs. Claus and all the elves in the magical setting of a 16th Century Palladian-style house.
The Victorian Christmas Experience will traverse all the Demesne including a Story with Mrs. Claus in her Stables, a journey through our Secret Tunnel and down to the Elves Basement to visit the Sleepy Reindeer – see Santa’s Study and go wild in the Polar Snow Room!
Then it’s on to the most exciting part! Up the stairs into the main Dining Doom to see it laid out for Christmas Day followed by the Drawing Room to see toys of yesteryear. Here you will be greeted by Santa’s Chief Elf to see the man himself – Mr. Claus!
Every Kiddywink meets Santa and he will give them a little Victorian Christmas gift. There will be a chance at this point to get a photo taken professionally with all the family which you can add extra when booking!
But, it doesn’t end there! The Elvish Craft Area lies at the end of our back stables walkway where kiddies can see the animals, dress up and take a picture on the sleigh, make natural crafts with Niall the tallest elf in the world and get a steamy cup of hot chocolate. We have face-painting there too which you can add extra at booking time!
To finish, enjoy a stroll in The Woodland Walk with 2 km of beautiful woodland planted by Thomas Mahon in the 1700s!
