“We are looking forward to opening our doors to families on November 25. The magic doesn’t stop at our Elf Village, with visitors to the estate also able to enjoy our Twelve Days of Christmas walk and our Fairy Dell in our idyllic grounds for the very first time.

“From beautiful lanterns, to dazzling installations and a full fairy village for children to explore, this will be a truly magical experience that families will want to experience for themselves.”

The attraction is open until December 23 to families but is ticket-only.
