Special children’s tickets are available for these days, which include Farm Park entrance, a special time slot to see Father Christmas and their own choice of present from the Toy Room. Children, toddlers and young adults with a Father Christmas booking will also be invited into the elves workshop to make a Christmas Eve box.

We book up fast so advance booking online is strongly recommended. At least one week’s notice must be given in the event of a cancellation. 

Our cheeky elves will usher you and your child/children into Father Christmas’s luxury grotto to see the man himself, before giving you access to the Toy Room to choose your gift and see your photograph.

You will also receive a confirmation email closer to the time, with a link to an online questionnaire. If you’d like us to personalise your grotto visit, please complete this no later than 2 days prior to your visit.

Booking tips:

  • Only children who would like to meet Father Christmas need to book in advance. To be able to book a ‘member’ ticket you will need to enter the membership number of that child. This can be found on the back of their card.
  • Accompanying adult members do not need to book.
  • Non-member children who will be coming with you and who do wish to meet Father Christmas will need a ‘Christmas Experience and Farm Park entry‘ ticket.
  • Non-member children who will be coming with you and who do not wish to meet Father Christmas will need a Farm Park admission ticket.
  • Accompanying non-member adults will need to purchase a Farm Park admission ticket. These can be bought online or at the gate.

What an amazingly magical day we had visiting Santa. We love the farm park and visit a few times each year but we were pleasantly surprised at how magical Father Christmas and the elves were. The elf show and nativity were brilliant but the stand out event of the day was Santa’s grotto. Seeing Santa on our own as a family in his own log cabin and then getting a key to the workshop to choose a present followed by creating a Christmas Eve box in the workshop was so very magical. Thank you Cotswold Farm Park. – Facebook

Absolutely brilliant day visiting Father Christmas. So well organised and so much to do for the children. Loved all the personal touches and how much time you get to spend with the big man. Best place to visit Father Christmas by far! – Facebook

Quite simply the best Father Christmas experience I’ve ever been on with my children. The attention to detail, wonderful private grotto and completely personalised approach, all combine to make this a must do Christmas activity. – TripAdvisor
