Upton's woodland trail

Child playing on tree trunks

Look for the animal tracks overhead which mark the entrance to the woodland trail just by visitor reception. On our wildlife themed woodland trail you will find giant animal prints, stepping stones to jump across like a frog, and you can channel your inner squirrel by balancing on the large logs.

Discover things which wriggle, crawl, dig and fly

Our woodland is a haven for wildlife. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for birds while you build a bug house with twigs and leaves. See if you can also spot the bat boxes high up in the trees, and don't forget to look up to see the rooks in their rookeries.

Run a muck and have some fun

A great place to take a detour, step into the woodland near visitor reception and you’ll discover logs to climb on, walk along and jump over, as well as tunnels that lead you round and rooms under the holly trees. As you follow the path you'll discover more about our wildlife before ending up at the Restaurant for a well deserved treat.
