Yuletide Spirit At Rowallane Garden


The Christmas trees are up and the decorations are out, so it wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to Rowallane Garden, Saintfield for their Yuletide Market on Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 December from 12-5pm.

Head along and soak up the Christmas atmosphere with dozens of local craft and food stalls, selling a range of locally produced items and festive goods.  Their gardening team have been working with the support of Downpatrick New Horizons – Action Mental Health to produce stunning festive wreaths, which will be available throughout the weekend.  The Head Gardener will also be on hand demonstrating her floral art skills, so a perfect place to get that special handmade craft for the dinner table or a gift for a friend.

Soak up the festive atmosphere created by local choirs each day in the Stableyard, sip on a cup of traditional hot mulled punch or take the weight of your feet with a winter warmer in the café.

There will also be a vintage children’s carousel and the chance to meet a famous chap with a white beard and a red suit!

Normal Admission and National Trust Members free admission apply to this event.
