Family Summer Fun at Lytes Cary

Kids enjoying some shade at Lytes Cary Manor

Now the school uniforms are packed away for the summer, you’re free to have fun with your family at Lytes Cary. Our outdoor creative play area in the woods will keep the whole family entertained.

You can play a game of hide and seek, hunt for bugs or simply just enjoy some quality time with your family in the great outdoors. 
 
A blissful and relaxing lunch outdoors can be had in one of our perfect picnic spots. Snacks and a selection of drinks are available from our little tea room. The pretty barn shop sells of a selection of ice creams for those who fancy a sweet treat. 
 
The wider estate is waiting for the more adventurous, with three estate walks taking you through the Somerset countryside. Come face to face with the creatures, mini beasts and insects which swarm in the open fields and shady woodland of Lytes Cary Manor. 
 
Things to spot on our estate walks:
  • kingfishers
  • dragonflies
  • butterflies
  • wild flowers
  • the UK's rarest bumblebee-the Shrill Carder bumblebee

We have children’s activity booklets available from reception. Juno and Jacko, our Lytes Cary cartoon peacocks, can guide you around Lytes Cary. Juno and Jacko have worked hard to create lots of fun activities for you to do. Inside their booklets you will find:

  • a honey bee quiz
  • wildlife suduko
  • a true or false quiz
  • a can you spot page
  • a bug hunt
  • interesting facts about the history of Lytes Cary 

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture some of these incredible family moments.
