There's plenty for families to do at Dudmaston, including seasonal trails, bike rides and natural play. Find out what's on and plan your visit.

Comer Woods

Walking trails

The trails in Comer Woods are evenly-surfaced and suitable for little legs and all-terrain buggies. Expect some steep climbs.

Natural play

There's plenty of places to play in the woods. From fallen tree trunks to muddy puddles, don't forget your wellies and a sense of adventure. Along the Explorer trail, you'll find a natural playground and a den building area.

Bike rides

Suitable for little legs and less experienced cyclists, the Explorer trail in Comer Woods is a great place to hop into the saddle and enjoy calm, traffic-free surroundings.

Dudmaston Hall


Head for the swings, slide and climbing frame at Dudmaston Hall. The playground is close to Visitor Reception and the Tea-room.

Dingle and Big Pool walks

Set off on your own woodland adventure amongst the tall trees in the Dingle. Play pooh sticks in the stream or look out for wildlife on the water. There are some steep climbs and areas of uneven terrain in this part of the estate, which mean that these walks aren't buggy friendly.
