Family fun at the Abbey

Writing a story

Spring has sprung at Buckland, so pop on your hat and coat and come along for a visit that the whole family is sure to love this half term.

What's on?

If you are in the mood for walking out on the beautiful estate, why not try out the medieval beast trail? Pick up a notebook from Visitor Welcome and you can collect your very own bestiary to take home with you. Trails cost £1 per child, and dogs on leads are welcome on the walks too.

Local artist Claire Packer is running a family felting workshop on Wednesday, where you can have a go at transforming wool into art. Drop in between 11 - 4 to have a go. £3 per person.

Free craft activities will be running in the Ox Shed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the half term week. Call in to Visitor Welcome for more details.

Love to read?

Visit the second hand bookshop this February to take part in the 'book blind date' - we've chosen some great reads, wrapped them up and put a little teaser summary of the plot on a gift tag, but no details of the author or title. Why not have some fun and perhaps discover a new favourite too? We're always grateful for donations of good quality books - please just let us know if you have some that you would like to give.

Time for a treat

The fun doesn't have to stop when you head home - the shop is full of great gifts, food and souvenirs for all ages, so why not treat yourself to a reminder of your visit? There are plenty of things to tickle your tastebuds in the restaurant too - how about a delicious cream tea or hot chocolate?
