Christmas Trees - Available from 1st Dec

Our Christmas Trees on offer this year includes a great selection of ‘very local trees’ grown on Lydney Park Estate. These trees are grown by experienced professional foresters who’s care and attention ensures high quality, well-shaped trees available in different heights. Prices are reasonable and the carbon footprint couldn’t be better as they are grown under 1 mile away from Taurus Crafts. The trees are felled as freshly as possible which greatly improves their needle retention properties. On-site, visitors can select their own tree ‘un-netted’ so you really can see what you are getting before its made easily portable and put in a net. The opportunity to order special large trees (9ft plus) is now available, contact Taurus Crafts to find out more and discuss your requirements. Our selection of Lydney Park trees is complemented with other trees from further afield and a range of trees from Over near Gloucester.

We offer a selection of decorations, cards, gift wrap, candles, calendars and gifts. Our gift shop is full of presents ideas, stocking fillers and household goods from around the globe and locally. Fantastic pottery from Mary Rose Young, hand-made silver jewellery by Moonriver Jewellery, paintings from local artist Sheila Moya and a range of handmade items by Camphill Village Trust Communities.
