Children’s Trails, Activities & Play Area.
Bring your little ones to explore our 3 acre garden with lots to ‘discover’; at the garden entrance there is ‘Dressing up’ suitable for all ages (including adults). Choose from Fairy wings, head-dresses, butterfly masks, Gnome hats, Gnome Jackets and trail themed items to create your own character (please share pictures of them on your social media with our blessing).
Entrance to the gardens for Adults is £4.50, Children ages 2-16 are £2.00 and under 2’s are free.
Each school holidays we also have a new themed garden trail for the kids including a trail sheet with clues, and interactive elements – for up to date information please look on our Facebook or Instagram pages. Prices may vary
In non school holidays there is a Fairy trail to follow through the garden searching for fairies and fairy doors. Within the gardens you can ‘meet’ The Green Man, the Rusted Knight Of Olde, see Excalibur in its Stone, then wander through the ‘Fairy Glen to find ‘Hobbiton’.
Enter our Cave with its swirling mist to find the witches cauldron, then run around the turf labyrinth and make a wish. Stroll through the mown tracks and pathways of the beautiful wild flower meadow then head over to the wildlife area which is open on special days throughout the year for pond dipping and educational days.
