October half-term at Greys Court

Beautiful autumn colour in the woodlands

Whether it’s brilliant autumn sunshine, or slightly damp autumn drizzle, there are plenty of opportunities for children to get out of the house this October half-term and enjoy Greys Court.

Estate walk

During October the Greys Court estate is ablaze with colour from the leaves changing colour. It’s the perfect time to take the children for a refreshing walk out on the estate, and crunch through the fallen leaves.

Bring wellies and rain coats if it’s a bit drizzly, or a picnic and rug if it’s a sunny, autumnal day. There are various places along the estate walk for children to play; from tree trunks that now look like thrones to cut up logs that are fun stepping stones.

Chatterbox half-term trail 

Pick up a trail leaflet from Visitor Reception for £2 and get exploring the natural wonders of Greys Court, and win a prize.

The chatterbox trail invites families to shape their visit at Greys Court, and you'll learn something on the way, too!


Create a shelter for yourself this October half-term in the den-building area down near the play area. You’ll find plenty of sticks, logs and twigs to create your ideal hideout.

If you’ve already tried making one for yourself, why not make a fairy den? These are tiny dens you can make at the bottom of a tree trunk; you’ll need to find little twigs to make this a perfect little home for a fairy.


The Cowshed tea-room on site serves hot/cold drinks, cakes and light lunches. We also offer some children options within the lunch menu, dependent on what is available that day. The Cowshed tea-room can be found by continuing down the path past the shop.

The toilets have baby-changing facilities and can be found opposite the shop.
