Family fun this autumn at Croome

Enjoy some autumn fun at Croome with lots to keep the family entertained.

Apple Bobbin' - Family Trail

20 October to 4 November

We have a variety of apples in our orchard. Go in search of some of them hidden in the park.  Apple bobbin' is traditionally played at Halloween and was enjoyed by the Georgians. Here at Croome we grow a variety of apples in our orchards some of which will have been historically used for such a pastime. Have fun searching the grounds for all the different varieties and don't forget to collect your prize!  £2 per trail.

Natural play area

Discover the natural play area, the perfect place to sit and enjoy the summer sun at one of the many picnic benches scattered around.  Children can test their balance on tree trunks, build dens, sit on the wooden throne and scramble over logs amongst the trees.
