Tina’s just sent me these photos of the outside fence of our beautiful rustic Santa’s Grotto, opening tomorrow, Sat 12 Dec – looking so mild & sunny, I can hardly believe it’s nearly Christmas ! No booking required & it’s all undercover, with a seating area for parents & hot chocolate on sale. Yum ! Prices includes a visit to Santa in his new Apley Farm Shop Grotto, a present from Santa Claus himself to take home & a play in Pigg’s Playbarn.

Make the perfect day & book an Afternoon Tea with a visit from Santa just after your Santa’s Grotto visit. Or enjoy our Creamery Cafe’s Christmas menu before visiting the Grotto ? Then head off for a brisk walk wintry round our Skylark Nature Trail afterwards. Or do your Christmas shopping in our beautifully decorated Farm Shop & courtyard shops.

The Grotto will be open Sat 12 & Sun 13 Dec, Fri 18 to Thu 24 Dec, 12:30-3pm. For 12-13 Dec, children’s tickets are £9.95 or £18 for for 2 children. For 18-24 Dec, tickets are £11.95 each or £22 for 2 children.

Our customers already tell us how much they enjoy the shopping experience at Apley Farm Shop, but with only 14 days to go, this weekend will be an extra special one. Tina’s setting up a mobile karaoke system & microphone, so I guess there may be some spontaneous singalongs ! We want to be sure that all our customers hear about Breakfast & Afternoon Teas with a visit from Santa, Santa’s Grotto, our Christmas hampers, the Christmas menus in the Creamery Cafe, our Festive Afternoon Teas, our brand new DeliShop – online shopping & Click & Collect service. Plus free tasters – Taste Discover Enjoy !

To quote a very satisfied  & happy customer, a West Midlands businessman: “I just wanted to contact you to say how really pleased we were with the superb quality and service we experienced when we visited last weekend. We purchased a number of items from the butchery and deli departments and have found everything purchased to be of excellent quality, especially the pork/stilton/spring onion sausages. Additionally, the friendly service we received throughout does credit to all the staff. We also had lunch in the café which again was excellent. Thanks for a really good shopping experience, we will definitely be visiting again in the near future.” Isn’t that kind. It’s like the best Christmas present anyone could give to all our staff.
