"We paid a fortune to take the family to visit Santa in Lapland last year.

Believe me, this was better than that . . . and right on our doorstep!"

Our previous Magical Family Christmas Events were held at Picton Castle and were hugely popular

and well received.  Recently the castle's new management team decided they wanted to rethink their

 annual events' programme and Scolton Manor were delighted to offer us the chance to relocate.

Because we are a new event at the Manor we thought you might like to see some of the comments

from the families who sampled our Magical Family Christmas over the past few years.

"We visited the Family Magical Christmas event and it was beautiful. The house was decorated

beautifully and the staff were all friendly and made it a special occasion.  As for Santa well he is the

best one I have EVER been to visit, he just topped the whole thing off brilliantly. Well done to all

involved and thank you for your hard work to make it so special, you can see a lot of effort went into it.

Merry Christmas."

"A beautiful setting for a very magical Christmas experience. The children were mesmerised and the

attention to detail with the Santa experience was fantastic! They were particularly taken with the magic

in the elves workshop and the Christmas trees and decorations in the house were really beautiful.

I would fully recommend it - it's made our Christmas!

"Such a lovely experience, I took my 3 year old and she LOVED it 😍.  She was absolutely lost for words

when she went in to met Santa as the room and the great man himself were just made so real for the children.

I loved how much effort went into making it personal to each child as well by asking questions when booking

so Santa knew exactly what to talk about.  Beautiful experience and very Christmassy ♥️."

"Wow, this was a really wonderful Santa experience and I can’t recommend enough. The staff were amazing

and the attention to detail in Santa’s workshop and magic tricks really captivated my son . Santa himself

was the best I had ever seen . We particularly want to thank Papa Tinsel Bottom ( you know who you are )

for making this tour especially memorable for my son Dylan and his elf Freddy.

Thank you all so much and see you next year !"

"We all enjoyed the most fantastic Father Christmas experience. Not knowing what to expect we took the

whole family and every one of us was amazed by how well done the whole experience is. It was all

extremely personal and the kids loved it. Highly recommend to everyone. The best Father Christmas experience we had all ever done."

"Another magical Santa visit!  One of our children gets overwhelmed on these occasions and everyone was

attentive to their needs and kept stepping in and engaging them in the experience when they needed it.

In other venues the Santa visit has been missed following stressful queuing and over excitement. Here it is enjoyable from start to finish. The opportunity for Santa to pass on personal praise to each child is wonderful. I love the traditional stocking and Maverick is thrilled to now have a matching pair! Thank you so much!
