Take a look at what you can enjoy with a visit to Brockhole this month...
Choose your sustainable Christmas Tree
Lovingly selected by our Head Gardener, our Nordmann Fir Christmas Trees are from a local and fully sustainable forest in Windermere. Our trees start at just £25 for 4-5ft and we have all shapes and sizes available going up to 9ft for £55. This year we are also offering 'buy one tree, get one 'tree'. For every tree you purchase, you get a seedling for free. Download our Christmas Tree information sheet here.
Your free seedlings are welcome to be taken away although they will grow quickly and to some size! If you’d prefer, the seedlings can be donated to our tree suppliers and placed in a secret location on the banks of a Lake within the World Heritage Site, to continue to grow into healthy, organic, free range Christmas trees!
No front door is complete throughout the festive season without a Christmas wreath. What better way to welcome guests into your home than with a festive wreath from local florists Greenhouse Floristry? Our wreaths are available in various sizes, prices start from just £30.
