Why not make the most of one of the National Trust properties and head to the natural adventure park at Hatchlands Park. The adventure park will definitely keep them busy, climbing into the tree house and launching themselves off the leaping logs. There is also a ‘Bug Hotel’ in the corner of the adventure playground that’s home to lots of mini-beast, for those kids that just love creepy crawlies.

Perfect for; families that love adventure, den building, climbing and nature.
