Explore the magnificent homestead on the property, linger the tranquil grounds, listen to music, feast on winter goodies, dip fingers into golden caramel sauce, browse eclectic wares from local artists and enjoy unique merchandise offered by the colorful market stalls.
Kids can run around freely on the grass and let loose on the bouncy castle. They can indulge in sand art at the craft tent where you’ll find sparkly glittery fairies painting the faces and entertaining the young.
