Last weekend over 700 Christmas trees were sold from the Country Park’s sales area. This was the busiest weekend that we have ever had, helped no doubt by the fantastic seasonal weather.

The trees are brought in by Forestry Commission staff and are all sustainably grown in the UK. The three species sold are the Nordman fir, Norway spruce and the Lodgepole pine.

Only just over 700 trees remain in stock and they should last another week before all are sold.

For more information about Christmas trees see earlier post or look on the Forestry Commission’s web-site at


A few places still remain on the Christmas activities taking place on Tuesday the 18th December. Contact the visitor centre on 02392 595040 for more details.
