  • Tees Cottage Christmas Market: We are currently looking for and reaching out to traders to attend the event, bring your own tables and gazebos please, we are asking for £10 per single pitch.
  • Entry to the site will be free with tickets to see Santa priced at £5 per head, this will include a train ride and a gift from Santa. Pre-booking is currently being looked at and may be available at our next open weekend on October 8th & 9th.
  • Additional train rides; Priced at £1.50 or £5.00 for a family of 4.
  • Planned opening hours; 10.00am – 4.00pm
