Half term fun

Keep the kids busy this winter

Keep the kids busy this winter

Winter is here but half term is within sight! We have events to keep the family entertained and why not learn more about nature, the outdoors and history at the same time? 

Family-friendly events

Let us tempt you with some of our fantastically creative family-friendly events. Discover more and enjoy our places in fun and interesting ways. Try a Crumble in the Jungle at Cotehele, husky rides at Wray Castle, after-school bushcraft at Ambleside or join our Civil War Academy at Corfe Castle.

'50 things' activities

Have you ever built a den, or gone on a really long bike ride? If not then what are you waiting for? We’ve made a list of 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ to help your young explorers get outdoors and closer to nature.

After dark explorers

Come and explore the grounds of an old house after dark. Our new Night Run series is perfect for families with a choice of well marked routes.

Animal lovers

Take time out for a bit of nature watching and see the fallow deer at Dyrham Park or spot the seal pups on Marloes Sands. If you're mad about horses meet the Shire horses at Wimpole Estate.
