Play in our gardens

There is no better way to let off steam than by climbing trees, running races or rolling down really big hills. Why not do it at our place? Take a look at our list of top ten gardens for kids.

50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾

It's great to get outdoors in spring but sometimes its hard to know where to start. Have a look at our  50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾ challenges and get children (and adults) outdoors and closer to nature.

Fairy-tale castles

Fire the imagination of your little ones and let them see what a real castle looks like. We've castles with battlements, moats and dungeons for children to hold pretend battles and slay dragons.


As we climbed, the clouds darkened and rumbles of thunder echoed across the valley. At the top we told tales of Avalon; when you're six years old and your name is Arthur, legends of ancient kings are about the most exciting stories in the world.
