Grab your activity list and begin your '50 things' challenge
We’ve sadly taken the decision to close our parks and gardens, in addition to our houses, shops and cafés, to help restrict the spread of coronavirus. We know that people are likely to need space and fresh air in the coming weeks and months and we will do all we can to provide access wherever possible. Our countryside and coastal locations remain open with parking charges waived, but we encourage people to stay local and observe social distancing measures.
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 list or download one off the website and get closer to nature with '50 things thing do before you're 11¾'. There's plenty of activities to do all year round at Croft and our natural play area is the perfect place to get started; make friends with a bug, create some wild art, get to know a tree, build a den and lots more.
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.
