It’s that magical time of year again when Cogges Manor Farm in Witney comes alive at Christmas with a whole host of family friendly activities and sights to enjoy.
Families can visit the farm and see Santa in the stable over the weekend of December 17 – 18 and on weekdays from December 19 – 23 at 11am – 2.30pm, where the Cogges’ elves will be on hand to greet you and help you with your gift. (Book your time-slot at https://www.cogges.org.uk/Event/santas-grotto).
Visit the historic Manor House, bustling with Dickensian cheer, festively decorated as ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Enjoy delicious food and drink from Cogges Kitchen, enjoy the grounds lit up after dusk (open till 6pm at weekends); say hello the animals, and expect a few scares upstairs! Find family craft activities, stop off at the gift shop or pick up your perfect Christmas Tree.
“The volunteers have worked incredibly hard to dress the Manor House and bring a magical Christmas back to Cogges this year”
Autumn Neagle from Cogges, said, “We’re excited to welcome everyone back to the farm for Christmas. Delicious food and drink, craft stalls and workshops, family activities, in truly gorgeous surrounding right here at the heart of Witney.
“It’s been a difficult year for many, so boot out old Ebeneezer Scrooge and bring the festive cheer back, as the Manor House themed as A Christmas Carol. Our animals are really looking forward to seeing their visitors too– and of course we’re excited to be welcoming back Santa, flying in from the North Pole!”
Cogges has of course featured in Downton Abbey, more recently BBC Countryfile and its . volunteers were awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
