Christmas at Chilworth

Festive cheer in a stunning setting

Christmas at Chilworth has come a long way since the children used to sell 50 trees in front of the house!

To meet the ever-growing demand for our trees, this year we're creating more space and giving you more time to enjoy festive glogg, hot chocolate and wine produced from the very vines you're looking at, available at our pop-up bars.

We'll have children's walks and other fun activities too. You'll be pleased to know we also have more parking!

Christmas at Chilworth

The dates for 2024 are the 30th November & 1st December and 7th & 8th December, please take a note for your diaries.

We'll be releasing slots for booking from early November, so please check back then, or sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date.


Carols at Chilworth

Feel the echoes of Chilworth’s rich layered history this Christmas. As the voices of the 11th century Chilworth monks used to be raised in plain song, now we plan to sing Christmas carols together in the vineyard, with festive glogg, hot chocolate and wine produced from the very vines you're looking at.
