    You’re invited to follow the adventurers Ida & Flick as they continue their journey to learn all about their Christmas dinner!

    Having arrived home from last years global adventures on Christmas morning, Ida, Flick and Myrtle the turtle are excited for their Christmas dinner. As Ledgewood Cottage fills with delicious aromas, the inquisitive trio wonder why they only eat Brussels sprouts, Bronze turkey and plum pudding with Jersey cream at Christmas, so they decide to investigate!

    Spend some time writing postcards in the Ledgewood Cottage library, before visiting Santa in Airfield House and taking delivery of your special gifts.

    Following your visit to Santa use your trail map to track the trios’ adventures. Be prepared for a close encounter while planting sprouts in Brussels, before dropping into the Claus Café to enjoy complimentary, warm Jersey milk chocolate, and fragrant spiced mulled wine**

    Dizzy from a spin (or two) on the Victorian carousel, you can fish for frozen sprouts before helping to stuff Bronze turkeys in the Elves Kitchen, using Aunt Kitty’s legendary recipe.

    Enroute to the Spice Bazaar, sample some Jersey milk, plum pudding ice-cream before getting creative with a ‘crafty’ turkey!

    Finally, before heading home, stop by Mrs. Claus’ workroom, or visit Santa’s woolshed and capture memoires of your adventures with a family photograph on Santa’s magical sleigh*

    Let the adventure commence…

    * Optional extra: cost of €10 per printed photograph, additional copies are €5.

    ** Over 18 years only.

    This truly unique experience, set over 5-acres of mature garden in the environs of Airfield House will take approximately 60 minutes. Following your visit to Santa, the experience is primarily self-guided, allowing you to mingle and explore at your leisure. Santa’s elves will be on hand throughout to ensure you navigate the experience enjoyable. Almost 50% of the experience is set out-of-doors, so don’t forget to dress appropriately.
