Here at Bury Lane Christmas is undoubtedly our favourite time of the year.

From our unique and locally renowned Father Christmas Grotto in the Christmas Shop with lovingly created different displays each year to our huge selection of best quality trees and delicious foods.  We believe it’s the best place to feel truly festive and find all you need for some wonderful gifts and decorations.

We also offer unique services, including bespoke personalised hampers, bespoke deli orders – from whole legs of Serrano ham to quiches, cheeses and of course your turkey – and we will even wrap and take your tree to your car for you as you need.

Our Christmas Shop is now open for 2017 full of Stunning Displays, Decorations & Sparkle.  Come and say ‘Hello’ to our NEW Talking Reindeer.

We hope to see you soon and wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year this season.

Reindeer Event 2017

The Countryside Restoration Trust are very excited to once again, be holding a Reindeer Event in association with Bury Lane Farm Shop on Thursday November 30th 11am to 3pm.

Based on the success or the event in 2016, we are holding the event which we believe is far more in line with our ethos and what our charity stands for. The event will therefore focus fully on the beautiful Cairngorm Reindeer, their wellbeing, the conservation surrounding them and informing children that reindeer are not just for Christmas!

We will be holding the event during the day, to fit in with the Reindeers’ natural waking hours and routine. We will also be able to engage with younger children who were unable to see the reindeer on previous events and invite schools to come and learn about these creatures as part of their curriculum. With many reindeer being kept in unsuitable conditions throughout the year, we believe that the Cairngorm Reindeer should be celebrated as the only free ranging herd of Reindeer in the UK and we would like to focus on educating visitors on the importance of this, especially during the festive season.

Please be advised that this is a Countryside Restoration Trust event, supported by Bury Lane Farm Shop. Therefore, if you would like to discuss this further, please contact The CRT direct on 01223 262999 or via email at
