Cotley Farm

Have Yourself a Merry Farmhouse Christmas

Dec 9, 2016

Christmas of the 21st Century means elbowing your way down a crowded high street, shopping list in hand, rolls of wrapping paper under arm and putting your reusable bags to excellent use.

To us at Cotley Christmas Tree Farm, we enjoy the more traditional elements of the festive season. Top of our list is food, and what better way to welcome in the season of indulgence than with mince pies and mulled wine, which you can get for free when visiting the farm at the weekend. We’re also proud to boast a range of locally sourced festive foods in our expanded new shop – well worth a peruse.


We’re also partial to a real tree to help make Christmas feel extra, well, Christmassy! As growers of the trees, we have written another blog post to help those of you who have opted for a real tree the full list of do’s and don’ts for looking after your real tree. To help add those beautiful festive extras, why not join one of our masterclasses run by renowned local crafter, Sarah Pepper. For full details and to book, visit our Events page.

Don’t forget, we’re running a competition to win a Cotley Christmas hamper – all you have to do is share a picture of your decorated Cotley Christmas tree with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, to be in with a chance of winning.

We welcome you to our family farm overlooking Whimple to enjoy a more traditional Christmas experience away from the glitz of the high street. Choose a quality homegrown Christmas tree from the tree barn with plenty of choice of sizes. Visit the ‘Reindeer Lodge’ to see the Reindeer and our other farm animals and the Nativity area with all the animals of the stable, including Mary’s donkey!

Our shop is filled with delicious locally produced festive foods, hampers and lots of Christmas decorations. We support and source local producers and you will find delicious puddings and cakes ,chocolates, honey, jams and pickles to name just a few. Turkeys are available to order and we also have beers, juices and ciders to make your Christmas a foodie fantasy!

There is no charge for admission but we do appreciate donations to our chosen charity ‘Send a Cow’ which does a great job at training farmers in Africa to lift themselves out of poverty. Find out more about our charity here.
