Surrounded by beautiful gardens and countryside, Packwood is a place of dreams and adventure. Pull on those wellies, grab that trusty anorak and have an outdoor adventure with us here at Packwood this February half-term. Children are encouraged to run wild in the woodlands, have fun and use their imagination to guarantee a great day out on the Welly Walk.

Looking for something to do with the little ones this winter? Check out our suggestions below!

The Welly Walk is a wonderful woodland area, full of adventure and a great place to run free, discover wildlife and have fun. Using a child friendly map, families can embark on an adventure together through the woodland with various activities at different points along the walk. Get stuck in and hands-on with activities such as den building, tree trunk hopping and see what inquisitive minds can create from natural resources.
