The Christmas experience at Tulley’s Farm is excellent. It feels very expensive when you book a visit to Santa at £45 for a child and £20 for an adult until you realise what’s included; a visit on a tractor driven sleigh complete with an overly excited elf that gets the whole group of guests on that time slot jolly for meeting Santa, you’re then taken into seeing Santa in a log cabin that’s beautifully decorated, Santa then tells a lovely story about a small elf called Dinky with a big heart and poses for a photo with every child and gives them a star to exchange later for a present. Then you go back to the Tulley’s Christmas village where you queue up to go to Santa’s workshop to either build a bear in exchange for the star or shop in the toy shop for a gift in exchange for your star. Be prepared that this queue can take a long time! Then there’s a multitude of other experiences included in the price of your tickets to enjoy. A Christmas circus which was mesmerising with very talented gymnasts, acrobats, clowns and jugglers, a post room to write to Santa (parents get pulled aside whilst the elves help the kids write to be given a reply from Santa to sneak under the kids pillows that night to add extra magic!), a reindeer flying school where brilliant actors enchant you with a pantomime like performance, a 3D cinema, gingerbread decorating overseen by Mother Christmas and Cookie, an enchanted Christmas forest and reindeer food making. In total my son and I spent 6 hours there in order to complete everything! My tips are make sure you take some cash as some of the stall holders card machines weren’t working, dress up very warm (it’s freezing!), wear wellies or snow boots as it’s muddy, and get there early to ensure you can do all the activities. Be prepared to feel a little ripped off for Santa photos though - a single photo sets you back £12 and the set of photos is £40. This is why I only gave 4 stars. All in all though Tulley’s was amazing and magical and all the actors of which there are 100s strive to make every interaction magical.

Excellent Christmas Experience. We went not knowing what to expect and thinking it was quite pricey with 3 children but now feel it was excellent value for money. My 8 year old said it was the best day out this year! The actors were excellent, particularly the elves at Santa’s sleigh ride, we had Fizzy, how he has that level of energy and enthusiasm after that many performances is mind boggling. There was a little queuing but that’s to be expected, the longest we waited was 20 minutes for the gingerbread making and we were offered a takeaway gingerbread instead. Good range of food stalls for lunch. Lovely atmosphere including fire pits and snow machines. The circus was the highlight for all of my children even trumping seeing Santa and getting a gift, which were of a good quality. Expect to be there the majority of the day.

We picked to go pumpkin picking instead of scarefest at Tully’s as that’s not really our thing.

We booked pick your own pumpkin at night after seeing there was live music, food places, cocktails and the field was lit up. Parking is not at the scarefest, it has a separate entrance. Lots of Marshall’s directing us where to park and out on the road too.

Tully’s had done really well, really well themed lots of pumpkin stands/Halloween stands. As you walk in there are several food places: a bbq shack, a Mac and cheese shack, burger/hotdog place, pic and mix, doughnuts, waffles etc. The food was quite expensive which we expected. But was more frustrated that a bottle of cheap water cost £2.

Once you go past these you follow the trail to the field. It’s beautifully done, with trees lit up, skeletons etc etc. Really well done. You then arrive at the field which opens out and it s fully lit by thousands of fair lights around the edge.

It was sad to see people throwing the pumpkins, standing on them and kicking them 😔 We couldn’t see any staff in the field either. Once you’ve picked your pumpkins and loaded up your wheelbarrow you walk back into the main part where eateries are. We went to the bar - £7 for a cocktail which was stronger than I expected and really nice. There was also live music which added to the atmosphere.

We only had two points that we would hope might be looked at:
1. At the bar there were no non-fizzy drinks. My partner can’t drink carbonated drinks but everything alcoholic or not was fizzy. Also maybe the addition of a mocktail would be nice?

2. At the end you can buy loads of different varieties of pumpkins but there was no information on the different types. Maybe a sign at each stand saying what they are good for? We found one which according to google is really sweet and used in deserts etc.

We paid £8 entrance fee each for 6.30pm on a Saturday. Pumpkins are charged using wooden frames so they can gauge their width. Really not expensive at all - we bought around 10 pumpkins quite large and it came to £30 which considering everything else we thought was more than reasonable. A standard size one is around £4

Most certainly would go again, the whole experience was really enjoyable 🙂 Well done Tully’s.

Very poor. Very expensive for what you get. They have tried to pack in to many people which meant there was lots of queueing. Lots of activities were an additional cost and even at £150 for a family of 4 we still had to pay for a picture. And then the father Christmas experience was just such a disappointment, they done it as a large group of people in a small space which is pretty bad considering lots of Covid restrictions, they didn't ask any of the kids what their names were and then father Christmas didn't ask any of the kids what they wanted for Christmas.
Overall I would recommend people look for alternatives and DO NOT BOOK THIS if you can look at other experiences.

I came to Tulleys Farm today in what should have been a magical experience. Having saved up to purchase tickets I cannot explain how disappointed I am with the whole day.

Working in healthcare I am very much aware of the current pandemic that is surrounding us and I felt it was really quite insulting the lack of covid rules you had in place. Firstly the number of people you were putting into a small area with no masks on is insane. We were crammed into the tractor shoulder to shoulder with other families, not even an inch between us, then all huddled like cattle into a small room with no ventilation and still no masks to watch Santa, who proceeded to not even ask the children what they wanted for Christmas.

We then queued for 45 minutes to get into the toy shop, once again unventilated - and once again no masks.

The queues for the reindeer and gingerbread stalls were horrific over an hour long and with two young children fully wrapped up it was not acceptable to wait that long.

The health and safety of the site is extremely questionable, with no real safety barrier around open fires. Perfect for children to run up to. The walls also had nails which were sharp coming out.

In all honesty I am so disappointed and upset with the whole experience. We paid over £100 for tickets for an experience which was completely mediocre and an absolute shambles .

This is our 3rd time of going and I have to say it was a disappointment.

Ticket prices are not cheap but with 10 haunts you think that it’s not a bad price.
We arrived at 6.30 thinking we had loads of time and head for our first haunt. Took about 15 minutes to get to the front so we didn’t think it was too bad. As time goes and more people arriving, the queues start getting longer so we enquired about fast track tickets but they were £6 a haunt each which is extortionate considering the original ticket price. We only managed 6 haunts the whole evening and got totally fed up with queueing by the end.

This year there was a massive lack of actors. One haunt we spent just walking around with no “spooks or scares” and it felt a little pointless. There was a real lack of actors outside the haunts from previous years also. Hellaments, not one actor engaged with us at all so your just walking around with a bag over your head holding a rope.

There were large groups of teenagers who did not give a toss how close they came to you, no masks, fighting in the queues. I was trying to move away from them to get some space in the queue but it just meant they than came closer to you again. No staff seemed to care that these teenagers were fighting in the queues, bumping into people, climbing all over the stuff. Some of these kids were out of control.

Overall the night was a let down. It just feels that tulleys have allowed so many people to enter this year with no thought on queueing and you can’t experience all the attractions which you have paid for and if you do want to do them all you have to pay extra again. It’s just another way of making people pay which we couldn’t afford.

We won’t be back sadly, as much has Covid has affected businesses, Covid has affected us also and we cannot afford to throw away money to spend a night stood in endless queues and not experience the “full” package unless we keep spending more money.

We went to pumpkin night last night and enjoyed the experience of walking through the fairy lit woods with the skeleton displays through to pumpkin picking & the photo opportunities but I do think that £28 plus £2.00 booking fee which came to £30 for the 4 of us was quite expensive considering we had to pay for our pumpkins as well which I only realised after I had booked. Luckily we only got 2 small ones and a tiny one & prices were reasonable. I think it would’ve been a nice gesture to say that you could have one free pumpkin or maybe if you spend over £10 on pumpkins get half your entrance fee reduced.
We were only there for 40 minutes as once we picked our pumpkins there wasn’t that much to do only get a drink and sit listening to music which my children & husband didn’t want to do.
We didn’t buy any food as we had dinner before we came but my 2 children did buy sweets which came to £16 which I thought was expensive.

What a disappointment. I’ve been going to shocktober fest for the past 4-5 years and always enjoyed myself and introduced a new batch of friends to it every time. Last time I went though, we were fed up of the long queues and not having enough time to do all the haunts so we bought fast track tickets (6 fast track haunts). Even with this we still didn’t have time to do the Circus one and that’s with arriving at 6.30pm and stopping once briefly for a quick bite to eat.

The place away the busiest I’ve seen it and in my opinion too busy to the point where it ruins the experience.

We started off in Coven’s 13 where we didn’t use the fast track and faced a lengthy queue. This was fun and we liked this one.
We then decided to get a hogs roast and went to the one place that served it. The man told us he was closed for a bit as he had no money and further advised us he wasn’t taking card. So we just bought burgers and chips in the main area - very pricey.

After that we worked our way through the haunts. They all seemed so much shorter then previous years. We were all thinking ‘is that it?’ after every haunt. In a couple of the haunts we hardly saw any actors, like we’d caught them on their break or something.

The Hayride is pointless, doesn’t help when you’ve got teens in front of you shouting , ruining the experience and phoning their friends etc. No scary bits at all. Could do so much more with that.
People drunk were pushing into the fast track, my friend told security but they turned a blind eye.
Hell-Elements was boring, I heard one actor the whole time.
Other haunts too short or long gaps between seeing an actor. Too many people allowed in so most of the time you’re watching others get scared.
Really disappointed, not going back next year.

Tulleys Farm Christmas was the best by far of all the places we’ve been to Over the years! Such great value, every single staff member was lovely and really got us feeling Christmassy! Sprout the Elf was brilliant. We loved the tractor ride to see Santa. Build a bear was fantastic the kids enjoyed placing a heart inside and stuffing them. The gingerbread making was so lovely. The reindeer flying school show was hilarious and the circus was so good! We also loved the 3D cinema and the 3D Christmas elf forest that you walk through! Everything was so magical we done the postal station at the end the kids wrote a letter to Santa. The elf’s secretly gave daddy 2 sealed envelopes so we could put under the children’s pillows last night which they both opened today from Santa!! Very excited children and very happy parents will be returning next year!!
Lots of eatery’s got diets,Dulux hot chocolate Definitely recommend those!
P.s wrap up warm and wear wellies.

We visited as 2 adults & 3 children which cost £32.

This price is for entry only, and we along with a few other visitors felt that the price for entry should at least include a small pumpkin per child or something like that as there are no attractions or things to do within the site other than the pumpkin picking which you pay for.

The tickets were £32, the children’s lunches came to £18 and 4 small pumpkins to carve + 4 miniature was £27. Total: £77 excl. petrol

Although the theatrical characters were brilliant with all the children and played their characters really well, we couldn’t help but feel like a tractor ride, pumpkin coconut shy, or something extra would have been far more worth the money as paying to go and buy pumpkins doesn’t make a lot of sense!

Having said that, it was a very fun day out, Tulley’s was decorated fantastically, and we highly recommend the apple cider donuts!
