Create an adventure this half term at Croft Castle, near Leominster. Enjoy an autumnal walk with all the family, build your best den in the parkland, kick about in fallen leaves and have a go at our children’s trail around the gardens this half term.
Croft comes alive in autumn, with burnt oranges, bright yellows and deep reds emerging on the trees around the estate. Pop on your wellies and feel the crunch of autumn leaves underfoot, host a conker match or two and warm up in the tea-room with a delicious hot chocolate or an autumnal one-pot.
Fishpool Valley is particularly atmospheric during autumn. Kick up the fallen leaves along the beech hangar and admire the reflections in one of the seven pools. Why not try one of the new walks through the valley or take a look inside the Gothic pumphouse while you visit.
Croft’s estate is also renowned for its ancient trees, which look particularly majestic during autumn, try the ancient tree walk from the parkland map to take them in in all their glory.
Try making some wild art with fallen leaves in the woodland, build your best den or go on a scavenger hunt and tick off some of your ’50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4′.
Can you spot the sneaky dragons hiding in the walled garden? This October half term, take part in the dragon trail and see who you can find lurking around the grounds.
