December 12, 13, 19, 20, 22 - 24: Santa Specials

Every child wants to see Santa at Christmas but busy shops with long queues and hour-long waits to see Santa can quickly drain your Christmas cheer. So come to Woody Bay, where not only is there free parking, but you can get into the Christmas spirit, meet Santa and enjoy a truly magical experience. This website will have more details and online booking later in the year.

December 29 - 3I, January 1: Mince Pie Specials

Had too much television and being stuck indoors over the festive period? Come to Woody Bay and blow the cobwebs away. Always plenty of seats available on our Mince Pie Specials so no need to book - just turn up.  A real coal fire awaits you. Enjoy a relaxing trip back in time in our vintage railway carriages behind one of our beautifully restored steam engines, over glorious Exmoor.  Every passenger receives a mince pie with our compliments.
