Autumn adventures

Springhill in the autumn

Enjoy a little piece of Springhill this autumn. Take the opportunity to see the golden and russet tones around the estate whilst the kids continue to tick off their 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾. Springhill has a number of walks around the property which form part of the Great NI Walk.  See our house dressed for the Harvest (every Sunday in October), crunch a few leaves along our walks and sit back with a bowl of warm broth and wheaten bread and take it all in.

Take an adventure through the woodlands at Springhill to uncovering clearings as you go, full of natural climbing frames. There are rope swings and dens, mud pie pits and snail racing courses, mystical creatures and thrones to capture imaginations.

Make mud pies

Our mud pie face - number 13 of your 50 things

Come along to Springhill this autumn and have a go at making some 'mud pies'. All you need is some mud and then some more mud. Every good mud pie needs some decorations. Stones, sticks, shells and leaves all make great mud pie toppings.

The mud pie station is located in the new natural play area.
