It’s official, Santa is back! Book in advance to make sure you get to meet him this year!

Santa, a dear old friend of ours, likes to spend his busiest month of the year at his favourite Garden Centre and Country Store.

He insists on spending 4 weekends with us in Welshpool, and this year he’s keen to meet even more of our lovely visitors – as he says nothing gets him in the festive spirit more!

Choose two ways to Meet Santa – either in his wonderful grotto, or in our restaurant! Details below…

Santa’s Wonderful Grotto

He helicopters in from the North Pole on the 2nd December (lucky visitors on this day will get to see him land!) and sets up his base camp in our Garden Centre, with a wonderful grotto, which is open on selected dates in December.

In the grotto you can:

Take a tour through Santa’s wrapping room, where all the children’s presents are beautifully finished with paper and bows, then step out to his reindeer stables, where hidden between the pines is his cosy cabin! Santa will welcome every child with a gift-wrapped present and happily pose for selfies!

Grotto visits are £5 per child and includes a gift-wrapped present. Available on selected dates in December.

  • A children’s meal, soft drink and dessert.
