A magical Christmas experience located in the Cotswolds

Visit Smart Trees this Christmas for a fun, memorable full day out for the whole family. Upon arrival you will be greeted by your own personal Elf who will join you on your magical journey to meet Santa. You will enjoy a sleigh ride through our 20 acre Christmas Tree plantation in our Tractor and trailer, guaranteeing snowfall, laughter and songs along the way.

Explore our magical indoor forest…

Arriving at our indoor forest you will enter a magical land with snow falling all around you. As you meander through the trees, expect to see a traditional Nativity scene, picture perfect moments and our friendly Reindeer who will be waiting for a stroke from all our visitors.

Make a wish!

You will receive a special coin which you can throw into our magical Wishing Well to make your wish. Don’t forget to look for smoke puffing out of the chimney at Santa’s Grotto, a sure sign he is home!

Santa’s Chief Elf will then meet you and take you to meet the main man himself. The jolly fellow will be sitting next to his fire, his rosy cheeks all aglow, waiting to welcome all the good children.

After a chat and a warm by the fire each child will receive a gift-wrapped, age appropriate present. From there your Elf will continue with you on your journey, taking you to our crafts and indoor games area.

Festive fun!

After some festive fun in the crafts area, each visitor can pull on their wellies and put their brains to the test as they embark on the adventure treasure hunt throughout the Christmas Tree plantation.

You will receive a map upon arrival at Smart Trees which will assist you on your journey to find hidden clues and hopefully… the treasure! This activity can be enjoyed at any time during your visit.

NB – please ensure you are at the Tractor & Trailer pick up point for your booked time slot with Santa.

Before you go!

Before you leave, don’t forget to feed our herd of reindeer that live on the farm all year round, fly along our speedy zip wire and get lost in our mysterious maze.

Grab some lunch at ‘Rise + Grind’ and find the perfect Christmas Tree and wreath for your home this Christmas.

Visit Caribou, our wonderful Christmas Shop to buy beautiful gifts, decorations for your tree and treat yourself to something special.

You will be full of Christmas spirit before you depart, and why not sneak a mulled wine by the fire before you leave?!
