  • ALWAYS call the farm or see their website or Facebook page BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours prices and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.  All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here!
  • Many more farms are requiring pre-booking appointments and reservations this year - check on their website.
  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Northeast England that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!

And if you know of one I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know! There are affiliate links on this page. Read our disclosure policy to learn more.

We visit in 2020 the first year the farm opened and returned in 2021 to undertake the children's Christmas trail. The farm had lots of hidden attractions amongst the trees for the children to spot.  We were able to take our dog on a lead and enjoyed a hot chocolate whilst wandering around the plantation, undertaking the children's Christmas trail.

Type of trees we sell: The Norway Spruce is a popular variety because of its bushy conical shape and its low cost. These trees will retain their needles if they are kept well watered and in a cool location (not next to the fire or hot radiator). The Fir Trees are a similar shape to the Spruce, but cost twice as much due to the longer growing period and extra care required. Fir Trees do retain their needles much longer in a warm atmosphere.
