Visiting Scotney Castle with a family this summer
Scotney has plenty to offer families throughout the summer, from guided walks around the estate to picnics in the garden. From Monday 19 July we'll have games to entertain the whole family and there's plenty to explore in our natural play area and wilderness camp.
Good to know
• Baby changing facilities can be found in the courtyard toilet block near the shop and tea-room.
• Bottles and baby food can be warmed up in our tea-room.
• If you fancy a picnic, you’ll find picnic benches on the lawn opposite the Walled Garden.
• There are plenty of buggy friendly paths around the garden, just ask at the garden entrance.
What’s on this summer at Scotney Castle?
Badger and Pepper play area
Badger and Pepper were the beloved dogs of Arthur Hussey and we have now introduced their playground into the garden, to keep our younger visitors entertained. Swing from the trees on our new tree swings, play our natural drum kit or hide out in the play house. For those not afraid to get their hands dirty there is also the opportunity to make a mud pie, or two, in our mud kitchen.
Explore inside a tree, build a den or create some wild art - just a few things you can do at our wilderness camp. Set your imaginations free and start ticking off some of your 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾.
