Santa Paws

Are your four-legged best friends on the nice list? Father Christmas has a special treat for them too this year!

Bring your dogs to meet Father Christmas and his elves in his magical winter wonderland grotto and receive a very special early Christmas present, provided to Father Christmas by the Canine Cottage (Trinkety-Paws). Before you leave you may like to purchase a professional photo with your furry friend or a souvenir. The Father Christmas visit at Chester House is a shared group experience. The timed session with Father Christmas is not exclusive to your group, however, dogs will meet with Father Christmas individually with their owners.

Wrap up warm and explore 85 acres of historic landscape with your furry friends and if they haven’t been spoilt by Father Christmas enough you can take them to the Canine Cottage and get them a few extra Christmas treats, find out more on how dogs can enjoy the estate here.

Tickets MUST be booked online in advance. When you book, you are selecting a time to visit Father Christmas. There is no need for those who do not wish to receive a gift to book a ticket. With each Father Christmas admission, you must also pre-book car parking. We recommend doing this first in case car parking is sold out for the day.

You must arrive at the estate at least 30 minutes before your booked Father Christmas time to have time to park and walk across. The Father Christmas Winter Wonderland is located opposite the Learning and Community Centre within our shopping farmyard. If you are late or miss your session time to see Father Christmas, then we regret this cannot be rearranged. There is no limit to the amount of time you can spend at the estate before or after your visit to Father Christmas – you have all day to explore! The winter wonderland experience is fully wheelchair, pushchair, and dog accessible.

This Christmas we have LOADS of amazing things to do and see including festive shopping at My Little Vintage, Saxby’s Cider, Trinkety-Paws, EDEN WILD and the Chester House Farm Shop. You can also find and purchase your dream Christmas tree within our farmyard with Elf-Delivery, enjoy our festive menu within the farmhouse café and wrap up and get out into the great outdoors by exploring our wider estate with your family and friends.

You can also pick up the perfect gift by attending our Christmas Fair (free admission), in partnership with My Little Vintage on Saturday 27th November starting at 10am. It is essential when visiting Chester House Estate this Christmas that you pre book your car parking admission.

You can book your parking here –…/where-to-find-us/. After you have purchased your parking admission ticket you can purchase your Santa Paws admission for your dog ticket here –

We can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with you this year at the estate! 🎄
