Festive Skating

Get your skates on…

Come and have a go on the undercover skate rink at Hestercombe this Christmas (it’s artificial so you won’t get too chilly!).

Housed in a magical winter marquee, you can skate whatever the weather and enjoy some festive refreshments rink side too.

Skating at Hestercombe is popular, so booking a time slot is a good idea as spaces fill up quickly on busy days.

See below for details of opening times and prices.

Make a day of it…

Festive skating is just one part of a day out at Hestercombe this winter.  Why not make a day of it and enjoy our other Christmas events – come and meet Father Christmas in his secret garden grotto, follow our Get Ready Reindeers Trail, take part in wreath making workshops and enjoy a Christmas concert in the Bampfylde Hall.  When you book skating, you are eligible for half price admission to Hestercombe.
