There’s nothing like fresh air and sunshine and what better time to enjoy lots of it than the long summer holidays? Don’t forget to pick up a ‘50 things’ list from Visitor Reception when you arrive, the adventures start here; see how many activities you can do again and again over the holidays as you spend time with family and friends.

Pick up a ‘kids only’ map and get trekking to the natural play area; there’s den making, wooden instruments, steep climbs, streams and so much more. All this fun is bound to result in some hungry tummies. You’re always welcome to bring a picnic to Brockhampton and make the most of the shade in the orchard. Likewise you can pop to either The Granary or Old Apple Store tearoom and fill up in there.

We will be running a children’s trail throughout the whole of the holidays, join us for a ‘fruit rhymes’ trail and win a prize at the end. Whilst you’re here you can also find out more about the Orchard Reimagined Project and follow our journey of restoring twenty-one acres of lost orchards. We will also be joined by Really Rural on two dates, bring the whole family to take part in ‘Escape from Plum Island’ activities, click here to find out more.

If you’ve still got energy after all of that then join us for some Minecraft building days, inspired by the Orchard Project, you can build your own orchard creation out of Lego blocks. Finally, we will be holding our annual dog show on Sunday 4 August, hosted by Hereford and Worcester Animal Rescue. Bring along your four-legged friend or just come and watch with your family.
