Grab your adventure scrapbook and tick off your 50 things
Croft's Natural Play Area is a great place to complete your 50 things list and enjoy some wild fun at the same time. Built and designed by our rangers using Croft wood and funds raised from all of our supporters who visit us; the play area is open every day with the castle.
Designed for children aged 7 years and older it features rope swings, rope bridges, climbing frames and balance beams. There's also a natural picnic area for parents to watch their little ones play and some smaller stepping stones and trails to follow for younger children.
Our talented ranger and his team of volunteers have recently built and installed a stage, complete with drum kit and glockenspiel, in the natural play area; perfect for your little performers.
Bring along your adventure scrapbook or pick one up from visitor reception and start ticking off your 50 things to do. Our natural play area has plenty to do to get started; explore inside a tree, build a den, hunt for bugs, play in the snow, hold a scary beast and more. There's something to do all year round in our natural play area.
Located not far from the Carpenters tea-room, it is a popular favourite for local families and is set deep within a part of Croft's countryside. Easily accessible and open from 10am, every day that the castle is open, you'll have to allow for plenty of play time as you won't be able to tear them away.
