German Christmas market at Hayes garden world
Opens daily from Saturday 7th November, right through until December 23rd.
Remember, from November 14th, children can also visit Santa at The North Pole in his very own Igloo.

This year, together with our usual spectacular displays of lights, trees and wonderful Christmas decorations, you can experience the delights of our very own Traditional German Christmas Market.

Alongside stalls offering enchanting traditional decorations and crafts, you can sample some delicious German-inspired treats, (and, perhaps, a warming glass of Glühwein?), or simply enjoy soaking up the music and the Christkindlsmarkt atmosphere as the big day approaches.

The Whitewater Hotel is the ultimate Lake district retreat featuring the fantastic Cascades Leisure Club & Spa. Situated in the picturesque Lakeland Village, Backbarrow, just one mile south of the world famous Lake Windermere and nearby the Historic market town Ulverston. The hotel building itself is steeped in history; it was formally a Dolly Blue pigment factory making the world famous “Dolly Blue” and was also a Victorian cotton mill. Many artefacts have been preserved and the blue pigment is still evident throughout the building. The hotel today carries a 4 star rating with an award winning AA Rosette restaurant. The 38 luxury en-suite bedrooms nearly all enjoy stunning riverside views. This hotel really is the ideal place to escape from the fast pace of life for a few days and the perfect location to discover the sights and delights of the South Lakes and Cumbria.
