Had a wonderful experience picking out our Christmas tree here on Sunday! The farm is huge and they have a brilliant variety of trees of all sizes. Very … More reasonable prices too. Bring your wellies if it has rained recently as things can get muddy! Overall a great experience, will be back next year!

🌲This amazing Christmas tree farm is located in a beautiful valley on the banks of the Lee. It's so delightful to wander through the trees and find … More the perfect one. Fintan looks after all his trees with lots of TLC and his gorgeous Shropshire sheep live amongst the trees and keep the weeds away.
A great experience for all the family to enjoy🌲
