Special Events: Christmas at Ashwood
Ashwood is a wonderful place for Christmas shopping. We feel sure that you will be spoilt for choice with the range of plants, gift ideas and festive decorations on offer and hope that you will be captivated by the magical Christmas displays in the shops, greenhouses and gardens.
Christmas shopping at Ashwood is so easy, convenient and relaxing, and you will always be able to find a parking space. Many of our customers also make a return visit in the days after Christmas as a welcome break from the Christmas festivities.
The Tea Room, with its open log fire, is always warm and welcoming in winter. You can rest and unwind with a hot drink and a homemade mince pie or you may like to try one of our delicious traditional Christmas Lunches that are served every day (except Saturdays) from Sunday 8th December to Monday 23rd December inclusive.
