Wyevale Breakfast with Santa Review

Yesterday morning we were invited to have breakfast with Santa at Wyevale Garden Centre in Sherfield on Loddon. The little lads were so excited to be meeting the big man himself and excited to be having breakfast out as we very rarely do.

I love visiting Wyedale Garden Centres at this time of the year, it always has such a Christmassy feel with all the freshly cut Christmas trees, Christmassy flowers and gorgeous decorations. This is usually where we come and let the little lads choose their new decoration for our Christmas tree, it's become a bit of a tradition now. But actually having breakfast and meeting Santa was an extra special treat that we've been looking forward to.

When we arrived, we were shown to our table. The 'colour me placemat' were set out for each of the little lads along with crayons, chocolate coins and Christmas crackers. We were told to make ourselves comfy and help ourselves to tea, coffee and squash. At the time of booking we chose to have a full cooked breakfast (bacon, fried eggs, a sausage, fried bread, black pudding, hash browns, beans, mushroom and a tomato!!) we didn't need lunch after eating all of that! And the little lads had a children's cooked breakfast (sausage, a hash brown, beans, scrambled eggs and toast) all of which was lovely.

Once the breakfast was cleared away the elves who were beautifully dressed and very friendly bought over Christmas tree cookies for the little lads to decorate. They definitely went for the 'more is more' approach and piled theirs high with icing and sweets. They were delighted with their cookie creations. 

While we were busy decorating the cookies the elves told all of the children to sit on the mat by the grotto, they needed to tell them that Santa had gotten lost and that they needed to shout and call out for him. After some VERY loud shouting, Santa appeared with a huge sack. Santas costume was great and he was fantastic with the children. After he had said his hellos and given a few high fives we were asked to continue with decorating our cookies so each child could meet Santa individually, have their photo taken with him and receive their gift.

This is the first year both of the little lads were excited to meet Santa with no tears. They had their photos taken, had a little chat with Santa and received their gifts. It was all very sweet and probably the first time that I began to feel all Christmassy this year, there's nothing like seeing Christmas through the eyes of your children. They really enjoyed it and soaked in the whole experience.

I was really impressed with the gifts from Santa, beautiful wrapped in big boxes, which as we all know, it's size what matters when it comes to presents! Tiger received a board game which we played until we waved Santa off and were ready to leave. Beaux received a stunt racing track which we opened once we got home and both little lads played with all afternoon!

We had a fantastic morning and left feeling really Christmassy. It was perfect way to meet Santa this Christmas. I highly recommend it, we will be coming again next year. To book your visit click HERE.
