Upton's woodland walk

Look for the animal tracks overhead which mark the entrance to the woodland walk just by visitor reception. Explore the logs to discover an amazing variety of insects, and listen out for the very noisy rooks who live at the top of the tallest trees.

Discover things that 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.

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.
