Every year for the past 5 years we’ve been buying our Christmas tree from Cotley Farm near Whimple.
Cotley have 25 acres devoted to growing beautiful Christmas trees, as well as a festive shop promoting West Country produce, adorable reindeer and an onsite Christmas cafe. In 2014 they also opened a new Christmas Tree Barn at Parr’s Farm Country Store – just a 10 minutes drive from the centre of Exeter – making it easier than ever to get a quality Christmas tree while living in the city.
We can’t wait for this year’s launch event (happening tonight). But if you can’t make it along to that, then there are plenty of other festive events you can look forward to..
