A former dairy farm in Northampton will host an artisan market and wreath making class as part of its Christmas schedule.

Elliotts’ Rectory Farm in Kettering Road, Moulton opened up its space to showcase its ‘hospitable nature’ last year.

The owners created a cafe, glamping site and events space and they are now turning their attention to festivities.

Brew Caravan, will also be on site, with barista coffees, festive treats and tipples, as well as a bar and hot food.
