Reindeer at Old Holly Farm


Reindeer 2019

Father Christmas has been in touch and asked if we can once again look after 2 of his Reindeer – how could we refuse! So they will be with us daily from the 1st December through to 3pm on Christmas Eve (December is a busy month for him 😉).
During their stay there will be a £1 gate charge to enter our open farm (under 1s free).
Under 1s and Parking are FREE as normal. Playbarn charges remain unchanged.
Please be aware that there will be a no reservation policy and tables will be available on a first come first served basis throughout December.

      Thanks for the message. It’s £1 per person to enter the open farm (this includes entry to see the Reindeer) – playbarn charges remain unchanged. Yes we have a cafe, serving food from 9am – 3.30pm daily, and is open for brews and cakes until close at 5pm. When you arrive if you make your way to the shop the team will be able to help you from there. Please note that only food and drink bought on site may be consumed on site (this includes Birthday cakes). Look forward to seeing you all soon!

        Hi how r u is the farm outside or do u move the animals inside in the winter

        • Old Holly Farm says:

          Thanks for the message. We have both inside and outside spaces for our animals, so weather dependent we can move them between different areas. The milking cows are now inside for winter in a specially designed building, and will return to pasture in spring. The sheep and chickens are outside all year round. Hope that helps, Old Holly Farm

    Hello. I am a childminder in Padiham, Burnley and would love to bring our little ones to see your reindeer. Do we just turn up? Or need to book? We usually have around 6 children with us.
    Hopefully we will see you soon!

      Thanks for the message, it’s great to hear you’d like to visit. You can just turn up to see the Reindeer, we are open from 9am – 5pm right the way through to the 23rd, then open 8am – 3pm on Christmas Eve. Hope to see you all soon.
