Fun for families
Coleton Fishacre house and garden are both chocka-block with fun things to do with your little-ones come rain or shine. The garden has bamboo to hide in, woodland to explore and a wild play area to discover. There are trails to complete and stylish accessories to try on in the house.
On Wednesday 14 February there are two events which are perfect for families. From 11am - 1pm you could float love notes to each other on bamboo boats down the small stream, known as the Rill, which runs through the centre of the garden. You could chance your luck and choose one of the ready to use love boats, or take some time to write your own personal messages to each other. Is Your Love For Rill is free to take part in, normal admission prices to Coleton Fishacre apply.
From 2-4pm on Wednesday 14 February, the rangers will be making bug houses for their Wild Wednesday activity. Why not join them to tick off number 36 of your 50 things to do before you're 11¾? £3 child, normal admission prices to Coleton Fishacre apply.
In the house
The free spotter trail in the house challenges children to hunt for specific items. In the Kitchen there's a napkin folding activity which is perfect for little and big kids alike. There's also the handling room to visit; in here outfits and accessories from the 1920s and 30s are displayed, which you can rifle through and try on.
Fancy being a nature detective? The trail in the garden invites you to search for different types of plants, count their leaves or draw what you see, and then claim your reward of a sticker from Visitor Reception.
