Every year I purchase my Christmas tree from Kingswood Christmas trees, situated in the Kentish countryside, a few minutes away from Leeds Castle. Rob, the Christmas tree farmer, kindly offered us one his trees for the Open Day we held in October. Not only did he bring it along and set it up, he also let me keep it and it’s currently sitting outside the back door just waiting to be brought inside. Rob gave me the top of the range ‘Nordman Fir’ and barely a needle has dropped, mainly due to it being keep cool, outside and watered. It did try and make escape during the strong winds of a few weeks ago, but I’m pleased to say it didn’t make it very far.
I thought Kingswood Christmas Trees deserved a mentioned, because not only are they a fellow local business, they provide a magical hideaway and a beautiful selection of trees. Not only that, they’ve been known to host fashion photo shoots with the odd famous face too (you can see the gallery in their shop).
When you arrive, not only are you met with a beautiful Christmassy vision upon your approach to the main entrance, there is a grotto inside, which is free to go enter and hosts ‘THE’ Father Christmas who makes an appearance during the weekends in December. I took these photos last Christmas with the purpose of writing a blog post before they open again this year.
So, if you’re looking for somewhere a little different (and very festive) to purchase your Christmas tree, you can visit the Kingswood Christmas Tree Farm website, or their Facebook page which is currently being re-jigged!
