Florence Court's natural play area is a great spot to start ticking off those 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4.

Located behind the magnificent mid-18th century house at Florence Court is a natural play area which will prove just as impressive to little legs. Let children roam free as they discover tree stumps, branches, and fun obstacles to challenge themselves and each other.

Make more of your day out with the 50 things challenge, how many can you tick off?

Discover what's hidden in a tree (no. 22), create some wild art (no. 18) or get some branches together and get building a den (no. 4).
