Summer of play

Join us for a jam-packed summer that's full of ways to play.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

It's time for Summer of Play! Discover every flavour of play at Coleton Fishacre from 27 July - 1 September. Create, explore, move, wonder, make-believe. Try it all, find your favourite, come back again and again. Explore sensory moments among the shaded paths, get creative with building or spend lazy summer days in the hammocks and on the swing with a view. By the house, there's 1920's vintage games and a giant version of Peggity - ideal for all the family.

Summer of Play activities are free (normal admission applies). Summer of Play is sponsored by Starling Bank.
