Here’s our top five things to do...
9 Eat an apple straight from a tree
Whether you like crunchy, juicy, sweet or sour nothing beats an apple straight from a tree.
16 Make a daisy chain
Venture down to the abbey ruins for the best supply of daisies, look out for ones with long stems to make the best chains. Why not turn your chain into a bracelet or headdress?
25 Make a grass trumpet
Pick a clean, wide blade of grass and strike up your favourite tune. There’s plenty of lawn to find the perfect trumpet and lots of space to practise.
31 Hunt for bugs
Bugs love gardens; search under leaves and in fallen bracken to find creepy crawlies or find some flowers and see if you can spot bees and butterflies.
44 Go bird watching
Just past the summer house you’ll find our bird hide and hopefully some feathered friends. How many can you spot?
