The Woodland Animal Trail

Visiting with pre-schoolers? Try our Woodland Animal trail, specially for little ones...

Our Woodland Animal trail is perfect for children between 2-5 years as the animals are low down, easier to find and takes only 30 minutes to complete. The trail takes children on a journey through the Arboretum and is a great way to keep their interest while you enjoy the scenery.

Come and explore to find Sandy the Squirrel, Mr Buttons the Badger, Rafferty the Rabbit and all their woodland friends.

"Beautiful Gardens!"

"We visited with a two year old, the entry fee we thought was reasonable. We had a walk around the very beautiful grounds, I enjoyed it. My two year old enjoyed it because he could have a run around with out us telling him to be careful of people cars etc. One of the green houses had a box of baby chicks in which he loved..."
