Ellesmere Farm Estate to Hold Christmas Market

The Oteley Estate on the shores of the mere in Ellesmere are holding a Christmas Winter Market on Thursday, December 2.

The market is free to attend and will be held in the original stable yard. Local businesses will be selling a mixture of gifts, food, and drink products so visitors can enjoy stocking up on Christmas gifts and produce.

Clare Mainwaring, from the family business said, “This will be our first winter market and we hope to create a festive atmosphere with twinkling Christmas lights, Christmas music and the warming aroma of mulled wine. We will be running a licensed bar too.

“We would love to see lots of people from the community at this free event. There will be some fantastic local businesses running stalls, so it’ll be a great opportunity to pick up some Christmas gifts.

“We will be selling our home-grown meat boxes of beef, lamb, and pork, perfect for getting your freezer stocked up ready for Christmas!”

The market is free to attend and will be open from 4pm until 8pm on December 2. There will be some free parking available. The Oteley Estate is also organising a shuttle bus service that will cost £1 per person.

​From 4pm until 8pm the shuttle bus will run between Ellesmere, Welshampton and the Oteley Estate. The bus will pick up from Ellesmere Bus Station on the hour to go to Oteley, and it will pick up from Welshampton by the Parish Hall at half past the hour to go to Oteley. It will go from Oteley to Welshampton at quarter past the hour and from Oteley to Ellesmere at quarter to the hour. The last bus will leave Oteley at 8pm dropping at Welshampton then Ellesmere.
