Enter the adventure
Visit 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.
