February half term fun at Brockhampton

A family exploring in the woods

Can you believe it’ll soon be February half term again? How times flies when you’re having fun.

February is a lovely time to visit the Brockhampton estate as the spring flowers are starting to make an appearance and the days are beginning to get lighter. Why not visit us this February to see the seasonal changes first-hand?

For little ones we have a trail running throughout the half term holiday. Pick up a Strange Fruit trail sheet in Visitor Reception and find out all kinds of funny facts about strange fruit. Sheets are £2.50 and include a prize at the end.

From 16 February onwards, the whole estate will be open daily so you can pick up a light lunch and peruse in the shop before heading inside the historic manor house. Our estate remains open year-round for walkers but February half term will be an excellent time to explore, with the grounds gradually coming back to life after a long winter.

Out on the estate keep your eyes peeled for wildlife such a Muntjac deer wandering the woodlands. Don’t forget to look down too, see if you can spot any snowdrops or spring crocuses appearing. The estate runs over 1700 acres of beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Meaning there’s space for everyone to explore so pull on your walking boots and who knows what you’ll find.
