Honestly, we had the best time. The children definitely loved it.

Thank you so much for the photos it was so kind of you to take them. We had such a lovely time today and thank you for being such a wonderful Elf..... Merry Christmas.

The event was an absolute delight. The organisers attention to detail and the warm welcoming staff truly made it a memorable experience. It was fantastic value for money.

What a night.... Pre Christmas party. I was adamant we were making this a night of fun for the children - going all out with dressing up and well. Best start to Christmas. If you have not been - you must..... late night time is highly recommended.

Fantastic Christmas party, had a great time, Father Christmas was fab, recommend the disco, food was delicious. Thank you Dawn for a great experience.

We very much enjoyed our Christmas Experience at Burtree House! We were more than impressed, con only see it getting better! I was a bit of a non-believer before tonight but now I can't wait to make this our annual Christmas outing!

WOW, great fun, kids loved pony ride with Mary and Joesph. It was well put together. I also enjoyed the out door cinema with a cup of hot chocolate. Lovely to see everyone making the effort in getting all dress up in their Christmas outfits. Looking to going back this year.
