We want to get children outdoors and closer to nature this summer so we’ve compiled a list of 50 things to do before you’re 11¾.
This weekend tick off number 21 on your list as you head for the hedgrerows for a spot of foraging. The places we care for have some great spots for picking blackberries, and if that's whet your appetite have a go at number nine and eat an apple straight from the tree.
If you're planning a long journey this weekend, make a pit stop at one of our places and let your passengers really stretch their legs. We've got lots of adventures for families and plenty of great bank holiday stops-offs, that aren't too far from main roads.
