Brownsham Wild Play Area
Do you lead a group or just love getting outdoors and active with the family? If so come and explore Brownsham's wild play area, where your children can run free in a natural environment. With fun activities from bug exploration to swinging ropes; baking in our earth oven or hiding in our wet weather Iron Age Hut. Whatever your looking for and whatever your needs, Brownsham and the wider area has lots to explore.
What's on offer?
Fun for all the family. The wild play area is nestled in a tranquil hamlet surround by wildlife, rare grassland and woodland. This is the perfect place to relax, unwind and watch your children enjoy the pleasures of playing in a natural environment - whether it's skipping across logs, swinging on ropes, finding the end of our willow tunnel or taking refuge from the elements in our Iron Age Hut. We also have animal art, a willow coppice and an earth oven in this magical setting.
The wild play area is availiable to book for a variety of groups, be it cubs, schools or art groups. You can either explore on your own or book a National Trust Ranger for the day who will guide you through your adventure. Activities could include bug hunting, sensory games, creative art, willow weaving, baking bread, scavenger hunts and much more. We will tailor a package to suit your needs.
