50 things to do before you’re 11¾

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.

Summer events

Pack a picnic and join us for some outdoor theatre this weekend, from The Tempest at Trelissick to Treasure Island at Coleton Fishacre. There's open air cinema at Corfe Castle as well as loads of 50 things events.

Try one of our summer recipes

Our kitchen gardens have been full of berries this summer, so chef Clive Goudercourt has been busy using them in our kitchen. Here he's using some from Greys Court to make a summer classic, Eton mess.

Bank holiday ideas

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.
