Family time

Christmas is a time to spend with family and Godolphin is the perfect place to make memories with Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trail from 4 December - 3 January. We’re inviting families to come and take a wildlife adventure through the grounds as a ranger for the day  helping Percy prepare the animals for winter, explore Cornish nature, and wang a welly! For rangers who prefer the quiet, we also have a hibernation route where you'll have to tread extra quietly for the sleeping winter animals.

Winter walks at Godolphin

Wrap up warm and go for a family walk on the estate; take in the views, countryside and wildlife that make the outdoors at Godolphin so special. There’s always time for tea and cake, and we’ve got a selection in our Piggery tea-room – the perfect place to warm up.

Godolphin is only closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so there's plenty of time to visit. Bring your dog too, dogs on short leads are welcome throughout the garden and estate.
