The Village has the three main ingredients you need for festive fulfilment; great local produce, unique gifts and a heart-warming Christmas meal.

The Corn Exchange and range of independent shops are offering some great gift ideas and playful stocking fillers. Farmer Jack’s Farm Shop has fresh local meat and all the trimmings to make your Christmas feast spectacular and the Dairyman’s Daughter is open every day so you can relax and unwind with a hearty home cooked meal.

December will see a total of 9 exclusive seasonal offers including complimentary Christmas pudding, free gifts and ale at £2.50 a pint.

In the week starting December 7, the Corn Exchange has a special offer. Spend just £10 in Lavender & Lace and you will receive a free gift.  And nearby at Farmer Jack’s Farm Shop there is a 20 per cent discount off Tom the Butcher’s very own recipe, pigs in blankets. Meanwhile, at the Dairyman’s Daughter, there is a free glass of Christmas mulled punch with every Christmas cake.

In the week beginning December 14, gentlemen can go to the Corn Exchange, have their own personal shopper and have all their gifts wrapped for free until Christmas Eve.  And once the shopping has been finished it is worth calling into the Dairyman’s Daughter where Bad Santa’s Stocking Filler Christmas Ale will be on sale at just £2.50 a pint.

Santa Claus will be at Arreton old Village to meet the children every weekend during December including Christmas Eve, from 1:30pm – 4:30pm. Santa will be in his festive Christmas grotto offering gifts to all the children who visit him.

The independent shops and local craftspeople at Arreton Old Village offer some truly unique and special gifts from chocolate Santas and Christmas pudding flavoured fudge in Sweet Memories sweet shop to homeware and baking goods in Kitchen Corner.

Lavender & Lace is filled with bath bombs, homemade soaps and skincare products for all tastes. There’s jewellery and handbags galore in The Corn Exchange with designer leather purses and satchels, stunning vintage necklaces and a range of winter warming scarves.

There’s also the Ceramic Crafts studio, offering personalised ornaments and decorations; the Glassworks creating handmade glass art; the Leatherworks with hand-crafted belts and wallets, and the Craft Cabin with personalised hand-made gifts. It all adds up to a perfect Christmas build-up at Arreton Old Village.
