Dog policy at the Christmas Market

Whilst we all sincerely love four-legged friends at Hestercombe, unfortunately because it can get quite busy throughout the event, we cannot allow them into any part of the Christmas Market. However, they are still very welcome throughout the gardens, shop and cafe as usual.


All of our stalls are now full, but to find out about a space in next year’s market, please email us to find out more.
