To help you get into the festive spirit, here at Cotley Farm, we have some fantastic events in the Christmas lead-up for you and all the family to get involved in. Tickets can be purchased online through the website.

For all the family  

The Night Before Cotley Christmas Tree Farm Officially Opens – Friday 25th November, 19:00-21:00

Celebrate the start of the Christmas season by joining Cotley Christmas Tree Farm for our official launch evening.  Explore our brand new, expanded Christmas shop, where there will be plenty of samples from our various local suppliers, along with mulled wine.  You will also get the chance to decorate your very own wreath to take home with you that evening. There will even be the chance to meet our reindeer, including the new baby. You also have the chance to name her via our online competition. Entry is free, but booking is essential.

Cotley’s Matford Farm Launch Day – Saturday 3rd December, 11:00-15:00

Enjoy appearances by Cotley Farm’s reindeer, carol singers and Elsa from Frozen. Elsa will be judging the Exeter bauble decorating competition, and children will get the chance to hang their bauble from one of our locally grown trees.

The first 200 families to buy their trees from our Matford site that day will get a free child’s ticket for Dartmoor Zoo. Entry is free, but booking is essential.

For Adults

Perfect Pampering Gift-Making Masterclass – 5th December 2016, 19:30

Price of £25 includes materials and a glass of Prosecco or mulled wine on arrival, coffee and mince pies. Booking is essential.

Stylish Twiggy Swag Masterclass – 13th December 19:30 – 21:30 

Join our second of Sarah Pepper’s seasonal masterclasses.  We’ll each be making a garland base of about 1 meter using twigs and then a natural decoration of lovely hardy foliages, ribbon, cones, and dried botanicals.
