Woodchester Park natural play area 

In a secluded valley deep lies a playground in the woods. Swing in the trees from ropes, balance on beams and tree trunks or drum out a melody on the musical logs. The play trail is an easy walk, following the blue markers from the car park. There's also a family paper trail to follow around the park.

Lodge Park and Sherborne Estate, Gloucestershire

Lodge Park

Lodge Park is a 17th-centruy grandstand and has amazing views from the roof of the surrounding landscape. It's a relaxing space to spend time with family or friends, picnicking and playing lawn games. There's also the woodland walk for wider exploration and den building as well as lots of opportunities for ticking off 50 things.
