Displays open from October 2024

It’s your family and friends around you that will make Christmas a joyful success, but here at Meadow Croft, we have all the ingredients to set the scene for your celebrations.

Come and visit Meadow Croft to choose your Christmas tree. Whether that be an artificial tree or premium grade real Christmas tree – we’ll have a full selection available when that time comes! Artificial trees are becoming increasingly popular as they give your home a natural feel without the mess of a real tree. So, whether you’re looking for something small, large, pre-lit or bare, we’ll have an Artificial tree to suit your style. Real Christmas trees will be displayed in our outdoor plants area where you can browse, pick your tree and have it packed ready for you to take home.

You can add style and elegance to your Christmas tree with our fantastic range of tree decorations and baubles. Each year, we work with our suppliers to create themed displays that you will be able to use as inspiration. You’ll be able to customise your tree with traditional decorations or perhaps make it a little more modern and go for the unique decorations. Displayed alongside our themed tree decorations are a selection of Christmas ornaments and homewares.

Make your Christmas tree shine bright and weave Christmas tree lights between the branches. A full range of colours, lengths and varieties can be found instore. Add some twinkle to your home with our selection of indoor and outdoor lights.Character lights are always popular to put under the Christmas tree or to create an outside display.

Give your guests a festive welcome with our wreaths, garlands and posies which are freshly-made on site throughout the Christmas season.

Our gift shop is completely transformed into a Christmas wonderland with gifts for everyone. Find the perfect present for your family and friends. We ensure we have an extensive selection of gifting ideas that will suit him, her, the children or could pass as a secret Santa gift!

We stock must-have traditional Christmas foods such as Christmas puddings, sauces, confectionery, chutneys and Panettone, and you’ll also be able to find lots of novelty treats amongst our Christmas food shop too!

Don’t forget to decorate the dining table. We have the most perfect selection of tablecloths and runners as well as candles, placemats, napkins, and Christmas crackers so you can cook up the perfect Christmas dining experience.

We have everything you need for an unforgettable festive season.


Following it’s outstanding success, our German Market has become a big event on the run up to Christmas.

We transform our main greenhouse into our renowned authentic market, ready to open in the latter part of September. Over 30 hand-crated stalls are festooned with delicately crafted yuletide gifts, decorations, and ornaments. Each year, the Meadow Croft team go out to Germany to source products you would usually find in Germany at Christmas to make your experience as authentic as possible.

At the heart of the Christmas market, you’ll be able to sit and enjoy some festive German delicacies such as Bratwurst, sauerkraut and sweet treats such as waffles and Schokokuss (Chocolate Kisses). Join us this year to soak up the festive atmosphere. For more information, visit our German Market page under our Events Tab.

With a beautiful weekend forecasted we asked the plant team to pick their favourite plant available right now, they felt it was like being asked to choose their favourite child…..but they did anyway!
Louise chose a hardy gerbera (but snuck in a Bella fuchsia as well when I wasn’t looking), Lorna chose a beautiful Lilac. Tam is obviously staying in with her amazing three stemmed orchid. Kaye, went for 2 hydrangeas and Elaine went big with her cercis tree.
They all look wonderful, and the plants don’t look bad either.
