Infographic: The making of Winter Wonderland

Discover the length of time, hours of toil and number of twinkling lights it takes to create Winter Wonderland

In little over a week, Whinfell, Sherwood, Longleat and Elveden Forest will be cast under a captivating spell. Starting on Friday November 7, step into our enchanted forest and you’ll discover snow-topped trees, festive family activities and, of course, a chance to meet the big man himself – Santa Claus.

But what makes it all possible? Our latest infographic sheds some light on what lies beneath the magic of Winter Wonderland because, let’s face it, Santa and his helpers can’t do it all. Can they?

    Hi Liz, thanks for your comment. There is no Winter Wonderland at Woburn Forest this year. As the Village opened in June there was not enough time to plan and prepare for the huge undertaking, which requires planning to begin in January. But don’t worry: from December 1st to December 21st, Woburn Forest will fall under a magical spell and be transformed with dazzling lights, decorations and a range of festive activities.

    Hi Lucy, thanks for your comment. This year Winter Wonderland started on Friday, November 7th and will last until Sunday, December 21st. Unfortunately this means Winter Wonderland will not be available during your break.

    We booked a late November week at winter wonderland longleat earlier in the year as we’re big christmas and cpl fans. Sadly my mum was diagnosed with cancer and passed away at the beginning of November. We were going to cancel our visit as it was such a difficult time. My dad insisted we go. Our broken hearts began the healing process and winter wonderland gently coaxed us into feeling a little bit of christmas cheer. You have worked a little miracle for our family at what is the most difficult time of our lives as a family at the most difficult time of year. Thankyou all so much for your hard work, we came to you broken and left you feeling on the mend and looking forward to Christmas. Mum loved cpl and she loved christmas so our time with you was reflective and healing. We walked through the forest, snuggled in infront of a roaring log fire, made pottery family tributes and got to feed a real life rudolph. The fireworks were excellent and we even rejuvenated at the spa. Thankyou for supporting our family to actually feel the magic of christmas. You truly have done a splendid job. We hope to return to you again next April. Kind regards the Grayson-Fagan family xx
