Come rain or shine, there’s plenty to do this May half-term. The days are getting warmer and the park has come to life, it’s a great time to get outside and go exploring.

Trail and crafts at Dudmaston Hall

Enjoy the sunny (fingers crossed) weather and head out on a '50 things' adventure trail through the garden and orchard. Purchase your trail sheet from the shop and receive a prize at th end of your adventure. Join our activty volunteers on Monday 27 and Wednesday 29 May for natural crafts. A small donation applies to cover materials.

If you haven't got one already, pick up a '50 things' wall chart from reception and receive a sticker for every adventure. How many adventures can you have this May half term? Dudmaston has some extra special spots for you to have fun and tick off some of your '50 things'. Play pooh sticks on the Dingle, make daisy chains in the orchard or roll down the really steep hill in the garden.

Yoga in the garden

Join Sarah for a free taster yoga session in the garden at Dudmaston Hall on Wednesday 29 May. The session is free but please let us know you're coming by booking your space. Admission to the property applies, free entry for National Trust members.

The Shepherd's Hut is our catering facility in Comer Woods, near the barn in Heath Meadow. It's perfect for families and dog walkers who want to grab food on the go. Hot and cold drinks, a selection of home made cakes and ice creams are available here.

Pick up a free, self guided spotter sheet from the Shepherd's Hut during half term and plan your own adventure around the Explorer trail. The Scout camp is a great half way point to pause, climb the tree with many trunks or play stepping stones on the tree stump path.

A little further along the trail, there's a great spot for den building. Collect natural materials and challenge your friends and family to build the best woodland shelter.

Everytime you treat yourself to something on the go, you're helping to look after Dudmaston and protect it for everyone to enjoy for years to come, so thank you.
