For the little ones

Step back in time to the 1950's inside the castle, go wild in the mini and natural play areas or follow a family trail around the gardens.

King or Queen of the castle

Let your little kings and queens rule the roost at Croft. Our mini castle play area is located right next to the tea room and is complete with little turrets and keeps where younger children can let their imaginations run wild.

Step back in time to the 1950's

Play traditional games, read through memorabilia and dress up in the fashions of the 1950's in the Family Room of the castle. Have a go at bagatelle and make yourself at home in the Saloon and ask about our children's trails which run every holiday.

Go wild in the natural play area

Just a short walk into the parkland and you'll find our natural play area, nestled in the woods. See which creepy crawlies have checked in to the bug hotel, play hide and seek inside trees, hop across logs, build dens and fly high on our rope swing. Perfect for older children, our natural play area will get you outdoors and closer to nature. Don't forget to see which activities you can tick off on your 50 things while you're here. Ask in visitor reception for a 50 things scrapbook if you'd like to start exploring.
