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 the parkland.
