John R. Park's house is beautifully decorated with fresh evergreens, berries, fruits and feathers.

Upstairs in the house, children can make an old fashioned decoration to take home. Outside you can warm up with traditional treats including lambs wool (a cider beverage) and roasted chestnuts. Join in on the wassailing festivities in the orchard to ensure a good crop. Homemade goodies will be available at the bake sale in the gift shop. The gift shop also features a unique selection of handmade and reproduction gift items.
