Family adventures

Children having fun at Brockhampton

Brockhampton Estate is the perfect place to explore the outdoors, get in touch with nature and run off that energy.

Natural play trail

Our natural play areas down at Lower Brockhampton offer lots to do for all ages, set within beautiful mature meadows and woodland. Just metres from the manor house our younger visitors can explore the orchard and meadow with natural willow tunnels and bird hide. 

Older and more adventurous young explorers can balance and climb their way around the whole natural play trail winding through the woodland with activities on the way such as the rope on a slope, climbing logs, den building area and giant wooden xylophone.

The woodland is abundant with wildlife and insects which budding young naturalists can observe and follow. For those looking for more adventures we have regular activities on throughout the holidays. This autumn half-term you can bring your little ones to enjoy some nature-inspired crafts with some broomstick making with really rural. We will also be hosting a Brockhampton Beast Dirt run on Sunday October 21 with different length runs for all ages and abilities.
