It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Rowallane Garden, Saintfield.


It’s all go as the Christmas trees arrive and we hunt out the decorations, whilst untangling the fairy lights, in preparation for our festive fun.

In the run up to Christmas what’s better than popcorn and a festive family film? Wrap up warm and grab a hot chocolate or a tasty treat and sit back and enjoy a festive film beginning this weekend, 19 November at 2pm in the Barn. Please note our barn has limited capacity so get there early.

From mid-November drop in every weekday and watch the Gardening team make wreaths and floral art in preparation for our Yuletide Market weekend on 10 & 11 December from 12 to 5pm. Soak up the Christmas atmosphere and pick up some stocking fillers from our local crafters along with seasonal food stalls. We’ll have Christmas carols, floral art, warming festive drinks and have a ride on the vintage carousel. The Jolly man himself will be making a stop-off, so tell Santa what is on your wish list.

Our café is the place to be from 12 to 24 December from 12-2:30pm, where you can sit beside the open fire and deck out your gingerbread man by helping to dress them using your awesome decorating skills.

So, pop along and blow the cobwebs away with winter walks, seasonal decorating fun, festive films and our Yuletide Market – a magical experience this winter.
