Discover your wild side at Four Oaks

Children playing on Four Oaks, a natural play area at Knightshayes

Four oaks was created when Knightshayes wanted to give new life into four fallen trees, which were the victim of some of the worst storm damage the National Trust estate had seen since 1987. The play area, which includes a tree house and tunnels bored into the trunks hopes to get kids exploring nature, investigating roots and climbing the fallen limbs of the trees.


 The play area gives kids the chance to tick off another of the 50 Things, No.1: Climb a tree, or make the most of the stunning parkland around Four Oaks and play conkers (No.10), make a trail with sticks (No.12) or make a mud pie (No.13).
For more 50 Things ideas, head to the 50 Things site. 

The play area sits at the bottom of the drive in the parkland, so is free to access for everyone. There's a car park right next to the play area, with free parking for members.

Making a day of it? 
The why not pick  up one of our seasonal free activity trails and head off around the woodland garden. Just ask at Visitor Reception if you'd like to have a go.
