Play and explore

Let your little ones burn off some steam on the slides and climbing frames in the formal play area or run wild in the woodland play area. Follow the Childe of Hale trail to discover a world of giant buttons, vegetable musical instruments and optical illusions. Please note the hedge maze remains closed.
