Visitors can pay at the gate to visit our reindeer, however we recommend booking online to secure your time slot and avoid queuing.

During your visit, we have  reindeer treats available in our shop.

You can also check out our growing range of Christmas gifts, including our unique handcrafted reindeer antler jewellery from our very own reindeer antlers. You won’t find anything like it anywhere!

Children under 1 year old visit free.

Check out our Christmas Trees

At our Cotswold Reindeer Herd site in Ampney Crucis we have a range of fresh cut trees, for customers who have pre-ordered. To order a tree please send an email and a confirmation email will be sent. We can deliver trees by arrangement, and we can collect them after Christmas for recycling as well.
