Be inspired this half term at Croft

Two children stand back to back completing an outdoor trail at Croft Castle in Herefordshire

Pick up a half term trail from visitor reception, explore Croft's frosty parkland, find the natural play area and enjoy a hot cuppa in our cosy Carpenter's tea-room.

Snowdrop the fairy has emerged from her grotto in Fishpool Valley to find that a spell has been cast on Croft. All of the ponds in the valley have frozen over and the castle and gardens have been bewitched by an eternal winter. From Saturday 17 to Sunday 25 February, see if you can join forces with Snowdrop on our half-term trail; banish winter from Croft and herald the start of spring.

Blow away the cobwebs and pop on your walking boots this half term, as we have nearly 1500 acres just waiting to be explored. Admire the breathtaking winter views from the top of Croft Ambrey and feel the crunch of frost beneath your feet as you weave in and out of our ancient trees. See if you can spot the snowdrops clustered around the trees in the front meadow and try your hand at bird watching through the bare winter branches in Fishpool Valley.
