Up until 2007, the Lodge was a dairy farm complete with cow-sheds, milking parlours and run down farm buildings.
Over the last seven years, has lovingly converted the farm into a purpose-built Reindeer Lodge with miles of fencing, shelters, stables, barns and an onsite medical facility. He hasn’t neglected our non-Reindeer visitors either and has created a shop, large event barn, a home and landing site for Father Christmas when he comes to stay, and in 2013 he converted one of the oldest barns on the farm into a stunning tea room.
Blithbury Reindeer Lodge opens to the public for throughout the year, from family days and group tours to our totally unique and magical Christmas experience.

Acknowledging that wild deer must be managed if they are to remain in balance with their environment, the Society provides high quality education and training so that deer can be managed appropriately, humanely and according to best practice.
