Welcome Willow

Every year everyone dashes, dances, prances to Cotley Farm to see our reindeer. In May we were very surprised by the arrival of a new reindeer and in the build up to Christmas we have been asking Devon to name her! After over 200 entries we created a shortlist of the 5 names we felt suited her best. 830 votes later, 400 all agreed on what our little addition should be called. We thought it was only right that we had a few words from the reindeer herself so here is a note from… Willow.

Festive Fun in Devon

The Jingle Bell Rock is in full swing and we are getting stuck in to our favourite festive activities. Here at Cotley Farm we have lots of exciting events and you can still sign up for our Kids Crafternoon or Centrepiece Masterclass, which comes with a glass of fizz. We always find that getting your friends together and heading to an event gifts the Christmas mood so we’ve put together a few things going on in Devon this holiday season.
