The Ultimate Christmas Experience Returns to Blackthorpe Barn and the Excitement Begins on 28th October

It’s a Christmas delight that has to be seen to be believed at Blackthorpe Barn in Rougham, just outside Bury St Edmunds. The magic starts as you meander through the pretty tree lined approach and catch a glimpse of the rustic medieval barn nestled perfectly in the woods.

The ever popular Country Christmas Shop with its huge display of festive decorations and gifts for all is a must, alongside the weekends of British Crafts, showcasing the absolute best of our country’s talented and skilled craft makers. Not forgetting the famous Rougham Estate Christmas Trees renowned for their quality and longevity, Santa’s very own amazing grotto, as well as a variety of workshops and demonstrations. Plus, no trip to the barn is complete without a visit to the barn’s cafe serving the most delicious freshly made cakes, snacks and refreshments.

Blackthorpe Barn is just three miles east of Bury St Edmunds, off the A14 at junction 45 (Sat Nav IP30 9HZ).
