Come and help Santa at Harestanes!

Bilberry the elf is missing, the sleigh has broken down… Santa’s grounded at Harestanes! He urgently needs your help to fly back to Lapland in time for Christmas. Come and join us on a festive quest to find Santa’s magic icicles so that he can get back on his way.

  • Meet Santa in his magical Nordic grotto

  • Little ones will receive a token of thanks from Santa

What else can you enjoy with the family?

  • Indulge yourself and treat others from our newly refreshed retail haven

  • A range of festive treats and hot/ cold drinks are on offer

Be more elf - Be prepared!
